Number of characters and words in press releases

I'm currently translating a press release and noted that the total number of characters and words at the end of the press release is "hard coded":

Of course, these numbers won't apply to the target text. So what to do?


Since the text is written in Microsoft word, one possible solution would be to use fields (Insert > Field):

It's a pity that there's no field for characters including spaces :( :

For these, a formula will be necessary.


BTW: You can insert the fields in CafeTran and run a macro in Word to change the text string to a real field (and update it):
