does Trados Studio 2009 have a functionality to easily count Target Word Count?

Currently I am doing it through a workaround:
1. generate target translations
2. put monolingual files into another project (with target language from previous project as a source language)
3. batch task Word Count

Anyone has a better idea? Or maybe there is a hidden functionality in Trados...

I think the problem is to count the target words while you are translating.

Select the target text to be counted, copy/paste it into Word and count them.

You can compare Studio and Word word count, if you do the same with the source text, then in Studio Editor View go to View/Confirmation Statistics and see total number of words.

I got 442 compared to 450 at a sample file.
