Word count for Korean in memoQ
When you use an Asian source language for statistics, memoQ adds the columns Source non-Asian words and Source Asian characters to the statistics dialog.
Japanese and Chinese do not use spaces to separate words from each other. Therefore, you need to use the Asian character count. In the Statistics dialog, Source words show the total of Source non Asian words and Source Asian characters (source words = characters).
Korean, unlike Japanese and Chinese, uses spaces to separate the words from each other. Therefore, a word count is possible, not just an Asian character count. If Korean is your source language, you can use word count, and Korean is counted as alphabetical script like German.
