    Default how to express an idea?

    I want to express how I charge for translation.
    I got two sentences:
    “The number of words is calculated in accordance with the source language.”
    And
    “The word-count [for the piece] is calculated from the original document in the source language”

    Which is better?

    Do I have a third, better choice?

    Do you mean that you take a definite payment for the number of words in the source language, no matter how many there are in the target text?

    You can say:

    "Translation charges are calculated based on the word count in the source text/language"
