I simply use the MSWord wordcounter, then do a search&replace that replaces every apostrophe with another apostrophe. This operation ends with a figure for the total number of replacements effected, i.e. the total number of doubled-up words, e.g. j\'ai, n\'avez. Obviously, my source language is French and the basis for the billing. However, the publishing industry uses page counts and spaces between words ARE part of the count.

I simply use Practicount & Invoice 1.1 (www.practiline.com) for my wordcounts.

Other than that, I won\'t be able to make it to China, unfortunately...



Best regards,
