Hello colleagues,

For some time now I have been considering purchasing a word/line count software, but am still not sure which one would be the best buy.

I have heard of Practicount and Total Assistant and was wondering if anyone has had experience with these or similar software, for that matter.

I would have quite liked to purchase a software with which you can also issue bills, but as I have been unable to find any with which you can enter different line prices, I decided against this (that is unless, of course, anyone can tell me of any that do).

I would be grateful for any advice or recommendations.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

Sarah

does the job just fine IMHO.
I've been using it since its inception and have no complaints whatsoever.

Good luck!

Use Practicount; it is dead easy and has many useful settings (like for html for example you can check whether you want it to count alt tags, meta tags etc)

suggestion / practicount Nov 25, 2003

Hi!

I would suggest practicount, at best one of the latest issues, because here you can do word couting line, paragraph and page counting aswell and integrate well into the billing aspect. I personally suggest practicount. Positive
