How many words does my website have?

How many words does my website have

By now you may already know that translation companies base their quotes on word count.

The number of words will determine not only the price of the translation, but also the estimated delivery time.

How to count words in WPML
WPML allows you to easily find out how many words are in your entire website or just the pages you are interested in translating.

To count the words of the whole website including the different elements (media, taxonomies, menu, contents...) go to "Translation Dashboard" and click on "Word count for the entire site".

If you only want to do the word count of some pages, you should select the pages of your interest in the "Translation Dashboard". You will see that after "Word count estimate" you will now see the word count and the number of documents selected.

Is my Worpdress website compatible with WPML?

To ensure that the translation of your company's website is done smoothly through WPML, it is important to assess the compatibility of your website with WPML beforehand.

The wealth and variety of plug-ins in WordPress is such that it is practically impossible to keep compatibility with all of them up to date, even for a plug-in as matured as WPML!

WPML compatibility

To avoid surprises, please fill in the following form so that we can study your company's website and tell you the degree of compatibility with WPML.

You can visit the WPML website to see with which plugins you can expect a smooth integration, see recommended plug-ins for an efficient multilingual website.

It may be too late for your current website, but we advise you to read this document "How to create multilingual WordPress websites that are easy to translate" before your next multilingual website.

RECOMMENDATIONS

1. Check WPML compatibility with the plugins you use. If you have experience with WordPress you already know that plugin compatibility can be a real headache, so it's important to be clear about this from the start. Fill in this form to have us analyse the compatibility of WPML with your WordPress. On the WPML website you can find WPML compatible themes and plugins.

2. If you haven't started your WordPress project yet, check out these recommendations from the creators of WPML to create WordPress websites with a simple and efficient translation process: "How to create multilingual WordPress websites that are easy to translate".

3. Avoid machine translation. While the improvement of machine translation in recent years is impressive, you will not get the full potential of your website unless you use professional translators who are able to translate the nuances of the language and use the correct terminology.

4. Start with a pilot project of the web pages you need to have translated most urgently. This way you can confirm that the process runs smoothly and translate the pages with the highest priority according to your marketing plan.

How many words in my website?

Translation agencies base their quotes on word count.

The amount of text on a website will determine both the price of the translation and the estimated delivery time.

Word count in WPML

In WPML, you can easily count the number of words on your entire website or just the pages you are interested in translating.

If you want to count the words of the whole website including the different elements (media, taxonomies, menu, contents...) go to "Translation Dashboard" and click on "Word count for the entire site".

If you only want to count the number of words on some pages, select the pages you are interested in under "Translation Dashboard". You can see the number of words of the selected items in "Word count estimate".

Is my WordPress website compatible with WPML?

If you are experienced in WordPress, you already know that plugin compatibility is a key element for a smooth running and the stability of your WordPress website.

As with other plugins, if you want an efficient and streamlined translation process, you need to make sure that your theme and plugins are ready to be translated and that they are fully compatible with WPML.
