Hi,

I have an issue regarding the need to count one language characters/words in a bilingual file. I would like to know how and whether it is possible to be done without making a seperate one language file as it takes too much time.

Perhaps you know some program that could do it (if not Trados) or you have some other suggestions. Thank you in advance.

Hi,

Before discussing any possible solutions, are we talking about a bilingual Word file processed using Trados or a file containing text in multiple languages? If it's the former, do you want to count the source or the target words?

Also, are you sure this is posted under the correct category?


Best regards,
Valerijs

.doc file not processed by Trados Aug 12, 2015

It is word (.doc) file not processed by Trados. The file contains 2 languages and I want the count of characters, preferably, of one of these languages. There is no target file, it is just for counting the amount of text in one of languages.

Regarding the post category - I wasn't sure where to post this issue.
