This is something you are going to have to get actual quotes on - for large windows like this, I would get 2 at least - if they are far apart, then a third. Search the List in green banner bar above) for local Window replacement contractors and their reviews and ratings.

For this size window, VERY ballpark numbers - of course, price will vary with the number of windows, and of course if they are fixed or opening typoe, and what >

Glass unit only replacement probably about $300-400 per for normal triple pane, up to 30% more with heat mirror, low e glass, argon filled, or other specialty items. This assumes it can take a triple pane unit OK - ie. had triple pane before, or has a deep enough glass unit recess to handle it.

For entire windows, this size is probably going to run you $600-800 each for a completely new wood window, installed - maybe 10% more if second story (more than say 6 feet off ground). Vinyl or fiberglass you might get for a bit under $600, but not by much I don't think.

IF you have bad wood on a significant number of them, maybe time to consider replacing the wood and frame on all of them to get the advantages of a totally new sealed energy-efficient installation, and possible energy rebates if there are significant ones in your area - you might get a deal that brings the price per window closer to the glass-only replacement option.

Of course, it matters a lot what wood needs replacing - if only exterior trim or brickmold, that cann easily and cheaply be replaced, whereas if there is decay in the main frame wood iteself usualy cheaper to just replace the entire unit than fix the wood and install new glass.

Talk to your selected bidders first about option, have them measure, then after talking to all 2 or 3, decide if you are committed to glass or total replacements or maybe a mix of both - you can have them bid two well-defined option packages if you want - like total replace on certain ones, glass only on others, then decide after you see the bids, though they will probably be perfectly happy to give you pretty close estimates in the field.
