Hi all,

I started using Microsoft Word 2008 a couple of weeks ago and I still haven't gotten over the fact that its WORDCOUNT function does not give an Asian character count. With my previous version of WORD, I was able to know the number of Chinese characters in an English/Chinese file.

What software do you use to do Chinese character count? I found Count Anything but this is a Windows-based application. I need something that works on Mac. Is anyone using AnyCount? Is it accurate when it comes to counting Chinese characters?

要这么精确?能用上字数统计软件的原稿是非word文稿,图片居多,建议按份来算钱,如果没这种软件,难道一个个字来数?时间精力也划不来,况且图片的原稿也不好伺候。客户说(设计对白),“其他人有这个软件,或其他人可以把字统计出来,就你没。”这行业将任人宰割。

Target word count Dec 2, 2008

I use target word count in this situation. At adjusted rate, of course. I don't really mind diagrams and uneditable formats. Life is a game of give and take, isn't it? I have clients who pay me the full rate for repetitions.
