How is the word count determined?
The word count displayed is the number of words to be translated, for which you will be paid once the project is completed and approved. For projects with the translation memory feature activated, the number of words indicates the weighted word count. The weighted word count takes into account segments repeated within the same file and throughout multiple files. Repeated segments are priced at a reduced rate, which is why it is vital to work with a CAT (Computer Aided Translation) tool that will suggest these repeated segments to you.
