Perhaps this has been posted before but how can I convert my rate for 1,000 words into a row count with rows at 60 characters?

Counting software Feb 27, 2006

Why don't you try using a counting software (e.g. Practicount) where you can customise number of characters comprising a line, etc.


Hope it helps,

Count in Word Feb 27, 2006

Hi Spencer,

If you use MS Word, simply go to Tools > Word Count and use the figure that you find under Characters (with spaces). If you want to get lines of 60 keystrokes, just divide this number by 60. That's allicon_smile.gif

Best wishes,
Stefanie

In one word are approx. 6-8 characters, depending on language there are differences.
Try Fine Count 1.4, its the easyest way to count text.

FeeWizard for conversions Mar 7, 2006

I use FeeWizard to convert ST/TT word/line/page counts. You can download it under
http://amtrad.it/feewizard.php
You just have to enter some statistics data from old translations and the programme calculates all rates you need.

Best wishes,
Birgit
