Flip or Substitute Words

As an attorney, I am constantly needing to flip the words Petitioner and Respondent or Plaintiff and Defendant in a document. It would be great if word included a feature similar to replace or find that allowed two words to be inverted or flipped so that they can be interchanged. This could also be helpful for swapping names, dates, etc... from an old document into a new updated one.

        Side note: The replace feature cannot be used to accomplish this task because once the reverse of a word is replaced then the entire document just contains that word and MSWord then cannot distinguish from the ones it just replaced and the ones that were older that now need to also be flipped aka replaced.
