You're not really "up against" anything but the bottom line. If a
company has made the decision to offshore, it has already decided that
quality is not an issue. One day, the documentation department closes.
Maybe an editor remains. Maybe a project manager manages the entire
thing. But it seems to me that after a company has decided to move its
documentation offshore, you have no opportunity to compete. That's
what I meant.
