Top 5 Professions That Need Word Count

There is a number of people in the world who are paid basing on the how many words of content they produce per day. Let’s have a look at the list of professions where people would typically need a word count software to get their wages accurately.

1. Translators. All folks that are related to the translation process are word count gurus — trimming actual word count means either saving some budget or squeezing more profit. However localizers use not the pure word count, but “weighted word count” that is closely integrated with the translation memory tools.

2. Medical transcriptors. MTs have to digitize manually written or tape-written medical data. The main specific of this profession is that one has to listen and type at the same time. But a skilled medical transcriptionist is a valued worker who usually get their salary basing on the word count.

3. Commercial bloggers. These guys “blog for fun and profit”. Their task is keeping a corporate, news or whatsoever blog popular (i.e. filled with interesting content). They are paid per word of the generated content — pure word counters.

4. Freelance journalists. They are very much like commercial bloggers, but they sell their content to the “real media” (unlike of commercial bloggers they know nothing of SEO). Sometimes they are paid basing on the actual word count, but is most cases their wages are based on estimates (more details here).

5. Writers. Yes, the folks who write big books that are printed on white paper, which you can buy at Barnes & Noble. Of course there are less successful guys whose books you are hardly to find even digging all day long at Amazon. But both successful and not very successful ones are paid on the word count basis (more info on the topic you can find in the History of Word Count Metrics).

If you know any other profession, where people are paid on a per word, per character or per line basis, leave you comment and it will be included into the update to this article 🙂
