I have been asked to provide a quote for a translation job consisting of several PHP files.



Aldough I have experience translating HTML files, this is the first time I deal with php-files.



Do you happen to know if there is a convenient way to find out the exact length of text to be translated (something like word count)?



TIA

You may find an answer there.



I contacted Maxim of Practicount and asked him if he could look into this as well.



Good luck!

Srdaèan pozdrav!



P.S.

PHP file can be imported into Word doc:

- right click on web page and select all than copy and paste into Word doc where you can do the word count. But be warned, you should add about 10% to the word count because of the hidden text e.g. dropdown windows and buttons that show text when you point at them. Pozdrav!

WebBudget may do it Apr 3, 2003

I remember seeing a WebBudget demo and think that php may have been among the file types it could parse. You may want to check with the developer of that, or as Evert suggests, info@practiline.com.
