I did some technical authoring about three years ago and I learned a little about the field. As far as I know the work is generally paid by the hour. At the time I was working directly for the company and receiving around 40 euro/hour gross, though several of my colleagues were working through agencies in the UK and therefore receiving only around 70% of the total fee. Since this type of work is almost always done on a fixed term contract basis and often involves travelling to different parts of the world, I think you should expect to be paid substantially more than for doing translation work. A per-word basis sounds unreasonable for this type of stuff because there\'s so much hustling around and talking to engineers and so forth before you can sit down at the computer.
