Rates

The tables below gives an indication of typical rates. These will vary depending on the degree of editing the text needs and the levels of fact-checking and specialist knowledge of the subject you require.

For copy editing and English as a Foreign Language editing, the rates per 1,000 words and per hour are based on my reading the text twice, which is recommended for the best results.

For proofreading, the rates are for one reading, as this is usually all that is needed to identify any final corrections to be made.

See the services page for more details of what each type of editing includes.

I also offer a premium service if you require a fast turnaround.
