Editorial and proofreading rates

If your budget is limited, a more basic proofread can be arranged that will look at the bare essentials and proofread for your precise needs.

Commercial and publishing work

No two jobs are identical and it would be unhelpful and misleading to publish fixed editorial rates here as the final bill would depend on:

  • the quality of writing and number of errors corrected
  • the density of text on the page
  • the word count
  • use of technical language
  • bibliography, references, and endnotes/footnotes to be checked to the main text
  • cross-references to be checked
  • whether the document has already been copyedited
  • the service you require – i.e. proofreading, light editing, condensing and rewriting, or paraphrasing.

I therefore offer flexible and highly competitive proofreading rates determined by the expected complexity. The cost estimate I will give you is individually tailored to your requirements. If I was to take a one-size-fits-all approach, you may be paying for services that you did not need or missing out on checks that you did need.

If you have several small items that need proofreading over an extended period it may be possible to issue itemized / combined invoices covering these on a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis.

Invoices to business and publisher clients are payable within 30 days of invoice date with invoices issued on the day of completion of work.
