Every project is different, so the best way I can make a cost estimate is if I see an example of your text in advance. This way I can judge what level of intervention may be advisable and how long the work may take.
Issues that may affect the price include:
- length of text
- amount of correction work required
- speed of turnover
- fact checking
- suggestions for rewriting
- consistency of writing style.
The last three points are generally classed as copy-editing, which goes beyond a simple proofread, but we can discuss beforehand whether that is what you want me to look at or not.
I set a minimum price of £40 and will consider giving a fixed quote for larger texts.
We can have a chat or correspond to discuss your requirements in more detail with no obligation to commit. Please feel free to contact me and we can take it from there if you wish.
