Since I left your ranks 6 months ago, I've opened shop on my own
(shudddder!), and I have a pricing question for yous...
An electronics firm in Fayetteville, Arkansas is asking me how much I'd
charge for editing and formatting a small, 10-page owners manual for one of
their devices. They've written it basically, but it's pretty much gibberish
and jargon. I'm thinking $25 per page. Sound about right?
Thanks for the input! It's great to be back among the select few!
