I would begin by running the text through the MS Word grammar
check tool. This will remove anything even remotely resembling
an individual writing style or personality from the text and give you
a blank slate.

After editing and assembling a large manual authored by 11 architects,
contractors, and lawyers. I have now been asked to rewrite it in order to
give the document **one voice.** I have done this before, but not on a
document this large and not enough to have a familiar approach to
accomplishing it. I know that giving a document one voice is more of an art
than a quantitative method, but before I begin, I would be interested in
learning what steps members took to achieve this common assignment and
and/or how they approached it on their own projects.
