hello there
i have been translating excel sheets aplenty and now that its coming to billing time i am not sure how to make work count in excel. Saving it as a word (text based) file works but i can only do it to the page that is open and each sheet consists on average of ten pages (paths) and i have to do a count on dozens. So if someone has a good idea on how to count the contents in a more efficient manner - please let me know.
p.s. i work with an xp package

With a little help of search friends Jan 10, 2007

I found this topic: http://www.proz.com/topic/50794 and also some other posts.
You may also consider usung a counting software, such as PractiCount or AnyCount, or you do an analysis using Trados or any other CAT tool, supporting Excel files.

Best regards
Jerzy

FineCount Jan 10, 2007

You could try FineCount (just Google for it) - there's a perfectly good free version as well as a professional one. It counts in Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Acrobat, and you can do a wordcount of multiple documents at once. I use it constantly.
