A colleague has been asked to quote a price for "light editing" of a technical
manual (not in the computer industry, it's for an association). The manual is
something like a policy/procedure manual with about 70% text and 30%
tables/figures. The total page count is about 850 and the complete project will
take about 3 months to finish (it is being re-designed, which means working
with a graphics designer, and then sent to a printer). The potential client is
asking for a "per page" price for light editing and proofreading. And, btw,
they are located in the Midwest.

Does anyone out there know what the going rate is nowadays for this kind of
work? Or can you point us to likely places to do some research? We've already
checked with STC.

Please contact me directly because I receive the digest version. And if you are
interested in responses please let me know also so that I can share.

Thanks in advance,
