Determination of the number of pages
A standard number of pages is calculated by giving the command Word Count in the Word editor program and counting the characters with spaces and paragraphs. Thereby, the total number of characters is calculated in the translated text. A substantiation of this principle is is a translator’s work which may be physically “measured” according to the key touches of the computer keyboard. The particular number of pages is obtained by dividing the total number of characters of the text with 1800. This is the translation volume which is expressed in the defined (or standard) pages.
