We can define word count as the number of words in any given document or text. There are many reasons why it is necessary to know the number of words. From the point of view of professional writers, it is the way their work is measured. It can also help them to set the tone of their work as this number defines the purpose of what they write. For students, scientists and professionals from other fields it helps them to set the limits of how they present and publish their work. When it comes to readers, it gives them important clues about the time and effort they have to make to read a particular text. For translation, the number of words is crucial as the price is based on a cost per word.
In the past, counting words in a website was done manually and rules to count words varied depending of the type of text. Some of those rules took into consideration the length of the word, the number of characters and the presence of any other grammar signs. In the present there is a general consensus to accept that one word is a number of characters together without taking into consideration the length of the word. The most important aspect is that a space between a group of characters divide one from word from another. This is the criteria applied by modern word processors included in computers as well as internet applications in the internet.
Computers added automatic word counter tools for their word processors, which has eased the work either to professional and informal writers. They use the above mentioned criteria of counting a word as a group of characters divided by a space. Internet has also brought its own word count tools. Browsers like Chrome or Firefox offer complements that can be easily installed.
