a text-file would be a medium Oct 14, 2003

simply, copy-paste the text in a text-file, say NotePad, then copy the copy and paste it in Word-filem where u can count using the word-count in 'tools' (count by word, by characters with spaces...etc)

It depends on the CAT tool Oct 14, 2003

They all count the HTML, script and other tags differently. The CAT tool you will apply to translate the text determines your effective effort.

Counting the "notepad-cleaned" text makes only sense in cases where the client will accept .txt files instead of .html files.
