180 words amounts to 1 lauda (page) in Brazil
Feb 4, 2009
In Brazil, many translators who still count the message in words usage a block of 180 words together 1 unit (lauda, or page). However, people who translate from Portuguese to German finish up losing money because of the long words, often consisted of of what would certainly be four different words in other languages. The other counting technique we use below is 1,000 personalities without spaces as 1 "page". So, 1,000 characters or 180 words would certainly be very approximate in Portuguese together 1 "page".
