If a text input into the Content Safety API is more than 1,000 characters, it counts as one text record for each unit of 1,000 characters. For instance, if a text input sent to the API contains 7,500 characters, it will count as 8 text records. If a text input sent to the API contains 500 characters, it will count as 1 text record.
