I need to make a bid for my first technical writing job in Taiwan and I’d be interested in some help as to how the local technical writing freelancing market works here.
The work is an extremely low level technical user-manual paper that requires a lot of knowledge and some technical skills, will probably take a while to learn/write and will probably not have a high word count per hour. There’s a very basic document already provided that would need revision and is half way done (about a 100 pages).
- What is an average technical writing salary in Taiwan?
- Is calculation here usually hourly/monthly/word count/page count?
- How long does an average project like the one described expected to take? (yeah, it might sound weird, but I’ve learned that such expectations vary between different countries)
- Is there some English technical writing guild in Taiwan like the ones I’ve seen at other parts of the world?
Thanks in advance,
