I am a translator working in Hamburg, Germany on a unique project. I am
wondering if any of you are familiar with any of the following U.S.
military standards for documentation:

1. MIL STD 451-1
MIL STD 451-2
2. MIL-M-38784
3. MIL-PRF-28002C

I am trying to find out what the additional time expenditure is when
using one, or all, of these standards.

Any and all assistance would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,
