I have a lot of agencies that I freelance for and they always tell me beforehand the specific word count for the files I will be working on. However, I have no idea how they get those numbers because when I run an analysis of the files using Trados Studio, I always get a different number. How can I make sure what the correct word count actually is? And how can I protect myself from getting underpaid in this manner?
Thanks in advance!
