Check the word count of your document

Microsoft Word automatically counts the number of words in your document and displays them on the status bar. If you don't see the word count in the status bar, right-click the status bar and click Word Count.

On the Review tab click Word Count (or use the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+G) to consult detailed statistics or include text in footnotes, endnotes and text boxes in the word count.

Word Count functionality in MS Word

Unfortunately the word count functionality of MS Word does not always provide a 100% accurate word count. Therefore, I determine the word count of your document with the specialised word count software FineCount or the analysis feature of my CAT-tool.
