Embed

You can easily embed the counter on your website with the help of an IFrame.

Simply add the following code where you would like the counter to be placed.

<iframe src="//www.charactercountonline.com/embed.php?language=en" style="border:0;width:100%;height:750px;" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

If you would like to change the language of the counter then simply change language=en to the language of your choice.

For example, to set German as the counter's language the following code would be used:

<iframe src="//www.charactercountonline.com/embed.php?language=de" style="border:0;width:100%;height:750px;" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

Online Character Count Tool

A while back I needed to count the amount of letters that a piece of text in an email template had (to avoid passing any character limits). Unfortunately, I could not think of a quick way to do so on my macbook and I therefore turned to the Internet.

There were a couple of tools out there, but none of them met my standards and since I am a web designer I thought: why not do it myself and help others along the way? And... here is the result, hope it helps out!

What is this?

Character Count Online is a free online character and word counting tool.
All results are immediately shown and it is ridiculously easy to use and of course, the service is completely free.

How is it used?

You can copy and paste your text with the characters to count in the text area above, or you can type your characters and words into the text area. The counter will be updated instantly, displaying the amount of characters, words, sentences, paragraphs and whitespace in your text, not to mention that the keyword density (which you can configure from the options menu) is also displayed.

Which devices does the counter work on?

Character Count Online works on absolutely any device.

No matter if you have a mobile phone, computer, console or tablet the counter will work perfectly!
