You can visit site http://www.practiline.com. Very good program/ Trial version work with out problem during to 15 days. It\'s enough for you.
Second method - you copy and paste all text from slides to Word. some inconveniently.
And 3-d method (if you work with Trados) - Trados\'s utilite T-Window for Power Point.

check the properties Jan 20, 2004

Open the file in Power Point, go to the menu File-Properties, go to the Statistics Tab. You have there the total wordcount, slides, paragraphs, etc.

HTH
Grace.

ps. I've just check with practicount and the wordcount is the same reported in the properties.

Total Assistant Jan 20, 2004

You may try Total Assistant, it is really a good programme counting the words in text boxes as well.

Total Assistant vs. Practicount Jan 26, 2004

Hello,

I just tried both trial versions on a file I recently translated with tables, and there is a big difference;

Total Assistant gives me 553 lines and Practicount gives me 630 lines (not gross lines),
both at 55 characters a line, etc.

how does it come?

thanks for any answer

Noe

What was the version of PractiCount you used? Jan 27, 2004

Did you count with the new version of PractiCount (2.4)? It can also count embedded documents in MS Office files. So the difference might be due to that if there any of such in your PowerPoint file. Or it might be the matter of settings configuration.

Practicount 2.4 Feb 1, 2004

Hello,

I used the actual version 2.4, now I tried Freebudget on the same file, which gives me the same result as Practicount, so I wouldn't recommend the third one

cheers

Noe
