Hi all,

Is it possible to count words in several PageMaker files simultaneously? I mean, there are lots of them, and exporting stories to be translated with TagEditor for further wordcount is not the best way to do it, I believe.

There is also a word counting facility Aug 1, 2005

Hi ! In PageMaker 6.5 and 7.0 there is also a word counting facility, but it counts only the number of words of the current story. But if you export to trados using story collector, you can take a file analysis, which should reflect the number of words of all the text content in pagemaker file. Regards, Brandis

Thank you, Brandis Aug 1, 2005

I know, I would like to find out a possibility to count words in batches of files. I am not sure it is possible, but...

One could use a word count tool Aug 1, 2005

Hi! I find Practiline software does it. It is also on trial basis. Take a check. Best Brandis ps. export all PM files using story collector and rename the file endings as .txt, you can access the word count using practiline.

Not directly. I would make a temporary Pagemaker file and import them all into it, count the words, and delete the file.
