    I have to translate a lot of documents sent in other formats, such as jpeg or png. First I convert it to pdf, but Fosit does not count the words. Is there a way I can do this other than converting them to pdf?

      Hi Claudia, yes, you can count words in Foxit PDF Editor. Here’s how you can do it:

      1. Open the PDF document in Foxit PDF Editor.
      2. Go to the “View” tab in the top menu.
      3. Click the “Word Count” button in the “Text” group.

      A Word Count dialog box displays the total number of words, characters (with and without spaces), and pages in the PDF document.
      Hope this helps.
