What is the average word count of a web site for a translation agency?

I will hire a professional web designer to set up a web site for my translation agency. Two languages for this web site is included in the base price so for each additional language I will need to pay for translation.

However, I will not keep the website limited to keep the cost for translation down so I wonder approximately how many words would be needed for my web site for a translation agency?
A rough estimate so I can calculate how many more languages I can afford.

I counted the words of a translation agency using this tool, but the count could not have been correct: less then 4,000 words for a large translation agency's web site in UK.


Is there any better way than above online tool to count number of words of a web site, for example using Dreamweaver or Frontpage?

Sound like you havn't identified your target market yet. you should start my analyzing your current customer or website visitor on their primary language. Then see if the revenue that you get from them out weight the investment cost of getting your website translated into that targeted language.
