FAQ: “How much do you charge?”
Very good question! Prices … pricing … cost … rates … Well, it all depends …
For students my rates as a proofreader are lower: between £10 – £15 per 1,000 words, or £15 per hour minimum. Of course, this is negotiable depending on the services needed.
For businesses and publishers: my rate is £24 per hour (for a simple proofread of approximately 3,000 words per hour). This is similar to the suggested minimum freelance rate as advised by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
Again, rates are negotiable depending on the level of intervention needed. I will give you a bespoke quote for your particular project.
If you want a speedy turnaround (within 24 hours) or need my services over a weekend, my rates will be higher.
