I may have found a very simple solution : if we agree that a chinese sign is a word as we understand "word", than we have to found how many sign there are. I made a test, and found that a chinese sign is 3 octets. The very same statistics tells us that the average number of octets of an article on the chinese wikisource is 1957. So, there are 1957/3 = 652.3 words. The statistics counts (on may 31, 2008) 29084 articles for the chinese wikisource, and 652.3*29084 gives 18.9M words for total.
The only question remaining is : why the statistics page presents 29.3M as the number of words for the chinese wikisource ? Is that the number of "groups of letters" ?
Anyway, if we accept the figures, we would have : 1. English : 211M words - 2. French : 125M - 3. Spanish : 41.8M - 4. Russian : 22.2M - 5. Chinese : 18.9M - 6. Polish : 18.2M - 7. Portuguese : 15.5M - 8. Deutsch : 14.4M - 9. Italian : 12.0M - 10. Arabic : 10.6M.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Now that we've got uploads running on our new, beefier file servers,
I've experimentally bumped the upload limit from 20 to 100 megabytes.
Files nearing the high end of that range might not actually succeed,
though, as it'll be hitting post-size limits etc.
As time goes on we'll be improving ways to upload large video files in
