Hello!
I have just got a project (file in tbu format), which need to be translated with Passolo localization software. I have not yet this tool, but I will buy it as soon as it gets.
My problem right now is that the client want to get a price and lead time for this project.
There is a possibility to count the words by any other means?
Thank you in advance for your help
Clara

Dear Clara,

can´t you copy and paste the text into a Word file and than go under Tools click word count and count the words-

If not I guess you have to count the lines and tell the customer the approximate wordcount, one line has 55 characters or so. Maybe soneone else has a better idea.

All the best
Andrea

Hello Clara,

just use PASSOLO's "Statistics" function to display the number of strings/words/characters of translatable strings.
