Hi all,

I'm on the look out for a software or a WordPress plugin that can count the words in the files uploaded by a customer. This way the translation price will be calculated automatically. This feature is enabled on the websites of major translation providers. Could anyone help me out?
Thanks in advance.

Loco Translate Dec 7, 2019

You should install Loco Translate, it is very good and free.

For that you will need admin access to your client's WP Panel, to install the plugin and start working on the files. You will translate directly in the admin panel.

I use it to translate plugins and themes.

This isn't what I'm looking for Dec 8, 2019

Thank you so much for your reply. However, this is not what I'm looking for. I need a plugin that can count the words in uploaded text files and calculates the price accordingly.

There is no way other than that Dec 9, 2019

Translation in WP are PO (.po) files and they have an specific folder in which they are installed, so you can access the panel and check how many words you have to translate for Arabic. But if you take the Theme or Plugin off that you won't be able to count only the words because they will come with a lot of code in the mix. I've translated many Themes and plugins so this is the best way.

Ask your client admin access to his site, install the plugin, go to the Theme or plugin that he

Just an idea if it's not too big Dec 9, 2019

After installing Loco Translate you can copy all language in the segments and paste on a Word file. Count it and send to your client.

Correct me if I 'm wrong, Hassan, but it is my understanding that Hassan doesn't want to translate Wordpress. Instead, he wants to use a Wordpress based web site as a portal for clients to upload files (i.e. business documents) to be translated, and he wants some utility that would count those uploaded files' words.

In this case you will have to contact a developer Dec 9, 2019

There are plugins and they are Form Builders that have that option. I remember that a year ago I did a quotation form with basic calculation for a client with Contact Form 7 (not really sure now!). This is very simple and the developer will do that really quickly.

But a plugin just specifically developed to do that I don't remember on WP just because the Form Plugins normally do this if you have some help from a specialized person. Or you just have to develop one just the way you ne
