Hayulllp!<p>Does anyone here have any experience in indexing? I am a copy editor for a small PR firm and we have just received a job to do a high-profile medical report,including indexing, a job which will apparently be mine. I'm trying to comb the Web to see whether it's worth it for the company to buy fancy indexing software for this project. The Chicago Manual's chapter on the subject makes it sound like software isn't worth the time it takes to learn it, especially for an inexperienced indexer.<p>Any thoughts on indexing software, and any other recommendations for me, given I don't have the time to take a course on the subject before the work is due?<p>Thanks in advance, and sorry for being so green around the gills.<p>Jen
(no, I do not bother copy editing my posts on an internet forum, for pete's sake.........)
