Record linkage, as defined by Wikipedia, is "the task of finding records in a data set that refer to the same entity across different data sources." I bring this up because ReMaDDer is a data linkage (and data cleansing) application for Windows. Its fuzzy record matching and data deduplication capabilities make it a great tool for finding duplicate records in two separate data sets.
ReMaDDer is available for Windows and it is available for Linux as well. Focusing on Windows alone, it must be mentioned that ReMaDDer is available for 32-and 64-bit Windows editions, as a portable and as an installer. As expected, the installer brings up a setup wizard which takes you through all the steps you need to take to install ReMaDDer on your Windows PC.
ReMaDDer has a tabbed, user friendly, and intuitive interface. You’ll like that you won’t have to spend a long time figuring out ReMaDDer’s graphical interface. Everything is nicely presented on the interface so that you can easily access all the features and functions that ReMaDDer has to offer.

If you have problems getting started with ReMaDDer, then you need to know that the application’s official website is home to a detailed tutorial. Available as a Microsoft Word and as a PDF document, the tutorial presents lots of useful information on how to use ReMaDDer.
