UMO would like to request bids for a writing project: rewrite/update existing medical product descriptions to provide unique content, and writing new unique descriptions for new products. To start, there are 20 product descriptions, split 50/50: 10 x rewrite/update existing descriptions and 10 x write new unique descriptions for new products.

Target cost is US$5 per description for the first 20 product descriptions; language proficiency must be Native British English and the quality must equal that found in *The Financial Times* newspaper or in *The National Geographic Magazine*.
