Has anyone used or uses a word to character conversion tool? I hope you have, since I'm looking for a free downloadable one. Could you recommend any?

Thanks in advance.

Did you mean characters that look like but actually means "smile"? Or something like U2 which would mean 'you too'? Or YRU standing for 'why are you...' something?

I agree, we need a little more info on this...

Use Word Sep 9, 2011

If you're using MS Word 2007 (perhaps this is true in 2010):
Click the Review tab; in the "Proofing" group there's an icon that shows "123" and below it, "abc" Clicking on it will give you all sorts of information: pages, words, characters with spaces, characters without spaces, etc.

If you're using Word 2003, Click the "File" tab, go to "View document properties", then click the "Statistics" tab. You'll get the word/character count there.

Of course, the specific commands will be different, depending on your localized version of Word, but this should point you in the right direction.

If I'm not mistaken, Practicount also provides a character count.

For calculating rates? Sep 9, 2011

Hi,

Did you perhaps mean a tool you can use to convert your fees from one calculation method to another?

Here's one I've used:

Hope this helps - if that's what you were looking for
