1. Rate per page which would include cost of scanning, cleaning image, conversion to OCR, and delivering PDF with hidden text & MS word file for the text. In the quotation document we do not want rate for entire project. ie not 50000 X Rate per page = but just the Rate per page.

3. Additional rate per page for getting image formats in Uncompressed TIFF Format (Both Cleaned & Uncleaned)

Many queries so posting here.

The language of the book is ENGLISH
