12: 4972/4283/697/55

I guess professional translators and other professionals often dealing with word count are well acquainted with this magic formula. Are you?

You may count your productiveness as, for example, 1 page per day. How much is it in characters? Characters with spaces? Lines? Being commonly asked to create text with certain word count, I still sometimes get lost. So I took a page of plain text with little formatting and the statistics is…

Characters with spaces Characters without spaces Words Lines
10 pt 4972 4283 697 55
12 pt 3838 3311 535 46

Just to keep in mind, the average one spaced page contains usually about 3000 characters or 500 words. Depending on the text formatting a page word count may include from 200 (large print) up to 600 words (academic book).
