If the text is restricted to the ASCII character set, whose character codes are all less than 128, then the number of bits equals 32000 × 7 = 224,000.
If an 8-bit character set like ISO/IEC 8859 is used, then the number of bits equals 32000 × 8 = 256,000.
If character codes beyond 255 are used, then some kind of encoding such as Unicode, UTF-8, or similar has been applied. The exact bit count cannot be known without the complete text, and a reliable estimate is not possible without some sense of which unicode subranges are used, and to what degrees.
Depends entirely on the character encoding being used:
Using 8-bit ASCII: 256,000 bits
1 byte per character. 32k bytes. 8 bits in a byte. 256k.
There is no one answer, it depends on what you are using to code them.
