I\'ve downloaded the demo and I am quite impressed with it, although it is difficult to find how to turn text boxes on or off. Which are turned OFF by default.



Personally, I would like to see a couple more things in it, such as counting per thousand words for UK translators. I know it sounds the same as pricing per word, but we tend to quote figures like GBP 47 / 1,000 words, which have to be rounded up or down if you\'re working to pence per word. Also, it doesn\'t have an Asian characters count, like Word does (if you install the options for the appropriate languages).



However, I tend to work from Trados analysis figures when working on texts in electronic format, anyway. (I\'ve never found an occasion when I need to turn the text in text boxes / headers / footers off when doing a word count.)

Sorry Sep 16, 2002

I meant to add this comment to the discussion on word-counting programs. I am talking about Practicount.



I guess I\'ll have to watch whether I\'m starting a new topic or replying to the existing one!
