Tokens are a kind of digital or virtual currency. In our case, tokens are used to pay for the use of our artificial intelligence.

Tokens are groups of characters that are sometimes as many as the words in the text, but not always. The length of a text in tokens depends on various things: the number of characters, the language of the text, and the use of punctuation. Therefore, the number of tokens is often higher than the number of words.

Basic Calculation
In English: 1 word ≈ 1.3 tokens
In German: 1 word ≈ 1.8 tokens

Tokens of a Request

So how long the AI’s response text is.
