Why should you use the word count tool?

One of the most common questions is, “Why would I use the word count tool for MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents?” The answer lies on the surface. It’s all about accuracy and convenience. Microsoft Office software tools often made you tap dance to get word count statistics. Let’s take a look at some facts.

Microsoft Word often skips words when counting. Text in complex parts of a document, in forms or graphics, may be overlooked.

In Excel, you need to use formulas to get at least a partial count. There is no easy way to count all the words in a file. You can copy the entire text into MS Word to see the statistics there, but is it convenient for you?

In PowerPoint, you can find only word count (the program does not count characters or lines), which is also wildly inaccurate.

When you work as a translator, proofreader, editor, project manager, reporter, copywriter, or you need to count words in documents often, it’s not about your story. You cannot spend so much time copying text from one file to another, special formulas, or converters. And this brings us to the main reasons to use the word count tool:

If you face the challenges listed above, you need a professional word count tool to save you from wasting time on a useless routine.
