I have to quote for the translation of a website.

I already ran a word count thru Webbudget, but for some reason I don\'t trust the count results.

Anybody out there who could run a word count on this site as a check?

Please reply soonest at jazyk@skynet.be.



Much obliged,



Evert Deloof-Sys

Evert, why not download the entire site with Webreaper, import all files into DV and count the words in DV?

Word count results vary between 7.700 and 7.950.



Counted by Webbudget, Freebudget, Practicount and Trans Suite...

Take the average :-) Nov 15, 2002

Take the average



250 words difference isn\'t that much in this case, IMHO.
