|German term or phrase: How many characters are there in a line|
|How long is a line (Zeile)? Does the number of characters include spaces (and the conventional two spaces between sentences!)? Is there an adjustment for lists that consist of single or compound terms (frequently more difficult to translate due to lack of context? Are we talking about source or target text?|
I would greatly appreciate some guidance here. Is there some rule of thumb.
|55 characters including spaces|
That is, if you're talking about translation and if you're talking about the 'Usancen' in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
We're talking about target text.
