I have developed this free on-line counter of translation statistics for .docx, .xls/.xlsx, .csv, .ods, .pptx. It is absolutely free - http://counter.engrutra.com .

I am actively using it, and I hope it will save your time as well. New formats will be added soon - like .doc and .pdf, in the first place.

You're a genius... maybe!

I uploaded a particularly complicated xls file and got the word count in a few seconds.But how accurate is it? There are 3 separate sheets in the Excel file. Did it count them all?

1. Inaccuracy is +/- 70-90 words for a 10,000-word file compared to FineCount, but it depends heavily on the counter you use as a reference. You take 4 different counters, you get slightly different numbers, like that. That`s because different counters use different techniques/languages to split your file into words.

2. Yes, all the sheets any file has.

PDF is now added Jul 7

You can now count statistics in .pdf files (non-scanned ones, of course).

A request Jul 11

It's vey good. I'd like to suggest an improvement (if it's possible):

After the number of words has been counted and returned, could the filename also be returned? I'm counting a large number of .pptx files and I need to remember which one I'm counting.

Also: when counting pptx files it's very slowwwwwww....

I was thinking about adding such a field with the name of your file.

UPDATE: name of your file is now visible.

Server overload after 3 files? Jul 14

Yesterday I had 14 small .pptx files to count, but after I counted 3, the system stopped working. It still doesn't seem to be working today. Maybe there's a cache that needs to be flushed?

The thing is that the counter is a PHP script, you have to upload something really (20+ megabytes) to stop the script (my tests).
And, once again, http://counter.engrutra.com is now down. it is https://t9ncounter.com now.

Tom, is it possible that you send me some of your files to see the results?

Hi Tom,

I have tested your files for reversal locations - Singapore, Czech Republic, etc. I am having the same problem for some locations - it seems that the problem is the speed of your Internet channel, or, to be more correct, channel performance of all ISPs between me and you.

I tried an US VPN, for example, as if I am in the US, and I am not able to upload a rather small file to t9ncounter.com for 4 minutes now.

When 'back to Ukraine', it takes seconds (well, not very surprisingly, since both my computer and the server I rented for t9ncounter.com are here).

Actually, there is nothing we can do here. We don`t have any influence on the route/speed of the traffic from me to you and back to me.

It can be your ISP, but a much more probable cause of this situation is just the distance.

The only solution to this is to try to upload your files several times. Usually it helps.

Thanks for all your help, Vadim

As you will know, there are other versions online of the same service you offer- I've tried several of them and they all seem to have the same problem: slowness probably caused, as you say, by the distance from me to their server.

Anyway to count the words in my pptx files I simply exported them as Word files and counted them from there.
