I am getting different word counts while using the same source document but on different computers. I have made two projects using different computers, both SDL 2014, and one gives me a word count that is 300 words more than the other. Is there a reason for this, how can I fix it and know which word count is more accurate? Please help! Thank you in advance.

Different builds of Studio? Jun 9, 2015

Are the builds the same on both machines? I suspect the word count feature has been changed slightly in the latest build, so if the builds are different, that could very well be the reason. If the builds are the same, I hope someone else in the know can answer you.

Thanks Roy, but I don't think it's the build...any other ideas? Jun 11, 2015

Hi Roy,

Thank you for your input, but I don't think it's the build. Does anyone have any other ideas on this? Is there a setting for Word Count and how it is calculated in SDL 2014? Thank you in advance!!!

Parser setting? Jun 23, 2015

Hi there,
what format is your source document?

It could be possible that the two different Studio instances have adjustments made to the particular parser setting for either the filetype at app level or project level. This can influence the wordcount.

Good luck with it.
