Shelley,

1. at this time FLUCALC does not distinguish between words of one language versus another. FLUCALC considers all text as one.

2. means that there were no bullets in a file from which total time value could be computed. If you files does have bullets, then please email it to me for testing.


Leonid.

I thought that tagging the English words in the Spanish files meant that they would be ignored in Spanish counts, but that does not appear to have happened (I cross-checked word count with FREQ). Is there a way to count just the Spanish words for flucalc?
