Why not? Regardless of whether the general trainer pay scale is lower or
higher than that of a tech writer, you're a professional bringing years of
experience to the job. Your potential employer is buying your time, with all
of your experience. If it's a job that rewards you in other ways, I would
consider a slight cut in pay, but probably not more than 10%.

In today's job market, we're all in a position to name our prices. It's a
lot harder to find a good person, and keep them, than it is to pay them well
for their efforts...

This is speaking as a freelancer... I can't afford to take a job for less
than my going rate, unless I think it will lead to more later...
