please keep in mind that this is a strictly European point of view. But I
cannot imagine that your position should be radically different:

- I understand that you collect and organize information your
customer gives you.

- Your customer knows much more about the subject than you do.

- Your customer is able to check your work.

- Your customer is liable for everything he delivers to his

From this point of view I could imagine that most of your responsibility is on
correct spelling and other things your customer might not be so good at.
But he is to check and re-check the facts you describe.

If the subject should go to court, someone responsible for some product and not
able to read some plain English text should have a bad time...
