I received a request for a big project for translation of a whole website and the customer asks me to analyze the files in SDL Trados Studio and then give him a quotation. But when I created a project in Studio and added the files and folders I received the error message that 20 of the files contain other language than English. So these can not be analyzed in Studio.

In AnyCount trial version I am limited to 10 files only.

Then I registered for a trial of MadCap but have not received any download link yet for the software.

I just need a simple, reliable wordcount software that can handle a mix of 2 languages in HTML files.

What about APSIC Xbench, would that work?

Maybe freebudget or webbudget would work for you. Otherwise CountAnything should do the trick.

OmegaT won’t care. It will just count the source contents.

The latest version is a 30-day trial and will do the trick.

Hi Fredrik, I saw your post, and wanted to help. I wanted to resend the trail email with the link to you, but want to be sure we have the correct address for you. I can see the email has been sent, and we have reached out a few times to follow up, but I am concerned you are not receiving them. Please feel free to email me - jmorse@madcapsoftware.com, so that we can be sure the correct email was given, and we are happy to resend the trial links. We are happy to help as you test as well.

Thank you, and hope to hear from you soon.
