If clients require corrections beyond spelling and grammar, please see my standard editing prices below.

STANDARD EDITING PRICES

Standard editing includes making more extensive corrections beyond spelling and grammar (e.g. corrections to formatting or tables and charts, or ensuring page numbers correspond to the table of contents). It also includes reading through document(s) and making recommendations and/or providing comments based on what the client requires. For instance, some clients require an ‘outside eye’ to read through a document and identify any gaps or flaws in argument and/or provide comments on structure.

7+ day turnaround
£9.00 per 1,000 words [up to 10k]
Example: editing an 8,000-word document costs £72.

£10.00 per 1,000 words [over 10k]
Example: editing a 12,000-word document costs £110.

3-6 day turnaround (max word count 20k words)
£15.00 per 1,000 words
Example: editing an 8,000-word document costs £120.

If the client requires heavy rewrites or more detailed editing work beyond providing comments, please see my advanced editing prices below.

ADVANCED EDITING PRICES AND/OR COMBINED PROOFREADING AND EDITING

Advanced editing includes more detailed or involved editing work such as rewriting parts of the document(s) or making other substantive changes such as reordering text (i.e. not simply making recommendations). This price band also includes work in which the client requires a combination of editing and proofreading (e.g. both making corrections to spelling, grammar, formatting, tables and charts and comments or recommendations).

Prices for advanced editing and/or combined proofreading and editing work vary from project to project depending on the complexity and turnaround time. As such, I typically provide bespoke quotes after discussing clients’ requirements, looking at the document(s), assessing the job and agreeing a timescale.
