I have a large document to translate. There are many, many scientific names in Latin which must remain in Latin. I need to adjust the word count accordingly.

Does anyone have a macro to extract the terms in Latin or count the words in Latin? I believe it can be done but, for the life of me, I cannot find the information. I know there are many colleagues that write their own macros; maybe some can help.

No macro is needed...

Just use Find/Formatting/Language: whatever-is-not-Latin and Replace with nothing (on a copy, of course!). What is left is Latin.

Of course, this works assuming that the Latin words are actually formatted as such and that there are only two languages present (if there are more, just replace Latin with nothing and subtract from the total wordcount).

This is what I was trying to recall. I knew it could be done, and, I have done it, I just could not remember the procedure.

Thanks a lot!
