I'm looking to build a list of word counting tools and do an evaluation. I know that Trados and other packages do word counts but I'd like to see if there are standalone packages like PractiCount and WordMetry that handle more file formats and would give more accurate results.

Anyone have any suggestions to add to the list?

You might wish to have a look at the apluscounts.com site.

Word counting macros for WORD and EXCEL, but only not for PowerPoint (only on a LINES-basis).


Kind regards!

Hello there!

I would like you to consider adding this word counting tool to your list. Granted, it only works with Word, but in Word it does a fine job of including everything:
