CONTEO DE PALABRAS

Tiempo de lectura: 4 min 55 seg

Antes de aceptar un encargo de traducción, el traductor debe saber que volumen debe traducir. Y antes de aceptar un presupuesto, el cliente también quiere conocer qué unidad de medida se le está cobrando exactamente.

Se pueden utilizar varios criterios: por palabra, por página, incluso por línea.

En España, la palabra es la unidad de medida que más se utiliza. Sin embargo, en las instituciones europeas se aplica una tarifa por página y en Alemania es normal presupuestar por línea.

Si facturamos por página, debemos especificar qué se denomina “página estándar”: equivale a 1 500 caracteres, según el criterio de las instituciones comunitarias. ¡Cómo se calcula esto? Muy fácil: dividiremos el número de caracteres por 1 500 para saber cuántas páginas debemos presupuestar.

Además de indicar claramente qué criterio se ha aplicado (palabra, página o línea), el presupuesto y la factura también deben aclarar si hablamos de palabras del texto original o del texto de destino. Un ejemplo: 70 000 palabras origen.

En esta entrada vamos a centrarnos en el conteo de palabras puesto que es la forma más común en España, excepto quizás las traducciones literarias que merecen una entrada aparte que trataremos en otro momento.

 

PROGRAMAS PARA CONTAR PALABRAS

Existen muchos programas con contadores de palabras propios, como Word o PowerPoint (Microsoft Office); pero hay otros que no lo tienen, como archivos de internet con la extensión HTML o Excel.

 Para solucionar este problema, existen muchos programas que tienen la opción de conteo de palabras de un documento. Es importante no fiarnos al 100% de un solo programa porque cada uno cuenta con un formato distinto a la hora de distinguir ciertos tipos de archivos o de simplificar la tarea. Por todo ello, es conveniente realizar el conteo de palabras con más de un programa, a ser posible.

 

 PROGRAMAS GRATUITOS DE CONTEO DE PALABRAS
