The Word Counter You Need When Translating a Website

Looking for a reliable tool to find out how many words you have on your website, or maybe on a specific page only?

Let's first understand what you need it for.

While you might need a word counter for a variety of reasons, one of the most common scenarios when you will need it is when translating your website.

Why? It's simple: just like salespeople are paid based on the deals they close, the translators are paid based on the number of words or pages they translate.

There are several online tools you can use to find the number of words your website has, and some of them are from translation agencies and even automatic translation tools.

Yes, you heard it right, even with some automatic website translation services, you should check the number of words you are going to translate, as they will offer different plans based on the word count on your page or the whole website. In other words, they will charge you money per word just like real translators do.

GTranslate took the management of Google Language Translator. What to expect?

To all Google Language Translator Users: Welcome to GTranslate!

As the founder of Google Language Translator Rob Myrick announced nearly a week ago, Google Language Translator is now a part of GTranslate family. Before talking about what this basically means for you, let's briefly describe what are the core differences and similarities of two plugins.

Google Language Translator and GTranslate

Both are multilingual plugins which help to instantly make your websites multilingual and both are easy to install and use.

Google Language Translator works like GTranslate's free plan. They both provide on-fly translation of your website through Google's machine translation: the website is being translated only when your visitor selects a language. The only difference here is in the design and default options to post Language Selectors on your website.
