I have a PDF document which I copied over to a Word document. The Word document then told me it was 11 000 words. However when I uploaded that Word document to this plugin it said the document contained 9 500 words, and when I uploaded the original PDF document the plugin said it contained 1 000 (!) words. I have also tried this with other documents with similar results.
