Hi Robert,

I'm not sure I agree with that. "Words" are just a small part of the total cost of technical documentation. Other parts include labour, cost of real-estate, translations, technical illustrations, cost of SW used for the creation and maintenance of the technical documentation. So basing the estimate on cost per word would be misleading.

Best regards,
Mats Broberg

Any such estimates would have to be based on word count, not pages.
