Hi everyone,

I would like to use a word count software. I was interested by TO 3000 which is also a project management tool, but all these seem to work only with PC's.

Do any of you know if they have a Mac version (I couldn't find any) or if there is another solution?

Tanks very much and have a nice week,

Anne

No counting / analysis tools for Mac Feb 12, 2008

Hi Anne,
analysis / counting tools that work directly on Macs are virtually non-existent. (I'd be extremely happy to hear other reports).

I have all such tasks performed on the Windows-side of my Macs, using Parallels. This actually works rather well, there are restrictions, however - with Practicount I have to copy the files into a local (Windows) folder, before Practicount accepts them for analysis. With Trados and DVX this is not required.

For project management I use a tool that is called T.O.M. - it is based on the database system Filemaker Pro, which is cross-platform capable. But T.O.M. does not perform counting / analysis tasks.

Stefan

WordCounter is pretty cool Mar 15, 2012

I tried wordcounter based on this thread; it works nicely.

My only issue is that it includes XML tags and doesn't allow me to filter specific tags.

Cheers,
Bruce
