Abacus is a .NET application that provides you with some simple utilities related to word counts.

At this time Abacus does not generate word counts, but only consolidates existing ones.


Abacus allows you to consolidate the results of a several Trados Workbench's analysis log file (the .csv version). It also provides you with some shortcuts to do copy/paste operations on the word counts listed in Abacus quickly from within any application.

See the section How To Use Abacus for more details on how to execute the application.
