Dear colleagues,

I am writing in this forum to ask if you know what I have to do in Trados Studio 2011 to avoid it counts numbers inserted in documents. I know that in Trados 2007, numbers were not regarded in the final wordcount of the document but I have checked that in the new versions it does. I have lots of documents with numbers that I don´t want to charge to the client so I wanted to know the best way to avoid this number counting.

I would really appreciate if you could give me some directions, if they exist or other possibilities that could help me count files faster and easily without having numbers into account. I know that in some cases, Trados could take them as variables.

Thank you very much for your support and time to answer to my question.

Best regards,
