Subject:Estimating Indexing From:"John J. Gardiner" <jgard -at- SLIP -dot- NET> Date:Thu, 11 Mar 1999 10:24:33 -0800
A client of mine is interested in an estimate to index a ~150 page Word
manual. Although I have created a number of indices, I don't know exactly
how much to charge for this project. Does anyone have a rule of thumb they
follow when estimating an indexing job?
(Please forgive me if this topic has been discussed before; the archives
