Build a service to count characters, words and paragraphs
Authored by: Wuffel on May 02, '12 06:04:48AM

Might the language issue be the result of the commands being in French? I'm guessing it could trigger the results to come up in French too...

That would be bizarre behavior if true, since the French terms in the original script are all variables. That would imply if you used gibberish names for variables (i.e. "set sjdUnfjkss to input as string" - which is valid) the title would come out as "Doksnj Elanvbdj Croslkd" :D

I think it would be safe to assume that someone named "Guillaume Gete" probably has his OS X install localized to Franšais; even though he programs his Applescript in English, he probably named the service to blend in with his environment when he compiled it. Not even sure if Applescript itself has been localized to other languages. If not, then shame, shame on Apple!
