How can I do word count if there is login / authentication session?

If the site uses HTTP Basic Authentication, the username/password can be set in Easyling, and it will log in automatically. If the site uses another authentication method, the session cookies may be passed along, and Easyling will use these to authenticate itself (although these are not stored between scans for privacy reasons!)

Does Easyling discover all the pages?

Easyling discovers the entire website as if it was a visitor, fetching all the dynamic content as well. However there might be a need to ignore some content multiplicator attributes (like colors, sizes can multiply the entries of a product catalog). In this case you can tell Easyling what expressions, attributes shell be ignored to avoid count the words with the same content multiple times with the different color names in the expression.

How does Easyling handle javascript and ajax generated content?

Easyling can translate JavaScript variables that are properly named in the code, although this requires knowledge of the language and the code in question. Otherwise, content that is not transmitted with the source code of the page will not be detected and translated.
