For translation?? That seems a little slow. I was talking with someone
working on a very large project to be split among several translators,
and I was told that other translators could do between 8 and 14
pages/day. (This was for what you would call "technical reference
guide".) I'm on the 8 pages/day side myself.

If you factor in the time for formatting, review, etc., then maybe you
can get that number (that would make the money come out about right,
too).
