Hi,
Anyone has experience counting the number of source words in AutoCad files automatically?
I am having a translation project in AutoCad but the method of counting the source words is really embarrassing me (I really don't want to paste them all to Word).
Any suggestion is welcome.
regards,
Smiles

Read this article, it helped me Jul 15, 2008

Guess what, a good soul here on ProZ already provided the solution!
Read this article, it helped a client of mine to extract all the text for me to translate and then put the translations back as well.

TRANS.vlx is for exporting and (after translation) importing the text.

WORDS is for counting the number of words in an AutoCAD file.
