I am a translator and I received files for a translation of a website which are in .itd format.
I can open them in the "Tag Editor" and these files have already little pieces translated, so I guess the client doesn't want that I count the entire document, just some text blocks.

Any advice on how to make a word count from the .itd files?

I hope you can help.

Harvest the files as ttx Sep 20, 2010

I think you should convert the .itd files into ttx in order to proceed to the wordcount. Go to SDL EDIT and export them as Trados Tag Editor (ttx) files then proceed.

Hoe this help.

SDLX Interface Sep 22, 2010

You have TagEditor on your PC. I guess you also have SDLX in an adjacent folder to use SDLX Interface. Here you open SDL Analyse and SDL Utilities to count words of *.itd files accurately [by reading respective log files] e.g. for translated, untranslated, locked, unlocked words. Beware that Trados and SDL word counts may not be identical [due to different segment rules etc.]
