I am translating a table (from a hard copy), and find it easier in Excel than in Word (2000), but hey - how do I count the words?? I cannot find a wordcount option.

Or do I have to import the table into Word?

import to Word May 6, 2004

Yes, you will have to import it into Word, unless someone else has another trick to find the wordcount. I hate doing that...

Another possibility would be to use Practicount of which a trial version is available online (www.practicount.com). This program also counts Powerpoint files, so might be extremely useful for some translators. Copying and pasting from Excel is not such a hassle, but Powerpoint can be a real nightmare (tons of different frames etc!)

Good luck and all the best!

For Powerpoint files, right-click on the unopened file and go to summary. You'll see the word count.
