Replace Phrase

Maintain consistency in your dataset, by finding and replacing terms in text responses.

It is common for text data to include typos, different spelling and personal preferences. For example, imagine a dataset filled with the following open-ended responses to a 'Your Australian State' question - many values can be seen under this State field:

nsw
NSW
New South Wales
Queensland
qld
QLD
QL
Victoria
VIC
Vic
NT
nt
Northen teritory
SA
south australia
TAS
Tas
Tasmania
WA

However, the desired end-state is having the following unique states in a format like - [NSW, QLD, VIC, NT, SA, TAS, WA] - to be able to generate correct insights and statistics.
