Hi All,


I know that I should use "Analyse" to do a word count. However, I am not definitely sure that I have done the right thing.

Could you please tell me how to do a word count in Wordfast Pro?


Thank you!

Just analyze the document Feb 26, 2009

Hi Shirley,

Open the document in WFP and choose Translation Memory/Analyze in the menu.

Cheers,
Gerard

help with word count in Wordfast Pro Sep 9, 2010

I tried the above suggestion, but it says "no active TM server", and asks me to open an existing one, or create a new one. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Scott

another question regarding word count Sep 9, 2010

OK, I figured out I just needed to open up a TM, and then it analyzed the file and gave the word count. But how do you get the word count just for the target text only?

I would also like to be able to get the word count for the fragment I need (not the whole document).
Can anyone help? (Using Wordfast Pro4)
