The task is to format the 300 pages file in MS Word with specific margins, etc. and to provide it finally in QuarkXpress format.

Can anybody help which have to be the price for such a work?

Per hour Aug 16, 2002

The easiest way to charge for such work is per hour. Set a rate and then time how long it takes to do the work.



I can recommend a software program for timing tasks. It\'s called TimeStamp (do a Google search for it) and I find it excellent. I use it for all my hourly jobs (editing, proofreading, formatting, etc.).



HTH,



Erika

The homepage is gone :-( Aug 19, 2002

Hi Cass,



I just had a look for the homepage and it no longer exists. I\'ll have a look through my files later and see if I can find the exe file. If I do, I\'ll send it to you by e-mail.



Regards,



Erika
