I am a freelance writer and I have written manuals for one client on a
specific software program. Another client has asked me to write a manual on the same software program. My question is about content. How much do you change/modify the content from one client to another? There are some sentences that no matter how much I try, sound best a certain way. Can the same text be used in manuals for more than one client? For example, "Click the File menu and select Print" or a description of a window, screen or another component of the software. Thanks!
