Editorial and proofreading rates
DISCOUNTS: 25% for students & academics / special rates for charities
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 fees determined by the expected complexity after inspecting your document and agreed with you before I start work. 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.
Quotations and estimates
I am happy to provide free, no-obligation estimates of the cost of proofreading on receipt of a sample from the document. It would be so much better to have sight of the completed document so that I can provide a more accurate assessment of cost.
No VAT is payable on my fees.
Students and academics
I all offer all students and academics a discount of 25% off my commercial rates. Any figures I quote you will be net of this discount.
Get your two-page CV and covering letter proofread for a discounted price of £25.00, or with your LinkedIn profile as well for £30.00.
Commercial and publishing work
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.
In the case of registered charities, discounts on my editorial rates can be offered.
Fixed fees for projects can sometimes be arranged. Please see the page for Terms and Conditions (clauses 6 to 14) for details of payment of instalments and timings.
For a no-obligation estimate of cost please email me with details of your project.
A minimum charge of £25.00 is payable.
See the Payment page for details of how you can pay me.
