I don’t have a ‘one size fits all’ price list on my site, because every job is different.

The fee for a job depends on many factors, including word count, the level of intervention you ask for, the complexity of the text and the timescale for the job.

I use the Society for Editors and Proofreaders’ suggested minimum hourly rate (see as a rough starting point. But of course these rates don’t tell you how long the job will take, and that can vary a lot depending on the text.

I might proofread more than 3,000 words in an hour in a text that is straightforward and well written, but I might only be able to edit 800 words in an hour in a much more complex, in-depth job.

So it’s better to start by getting a more detailed idea of your specific needs. I can then give you an accurate, tailored quote, and an explanation of how I calculated it and what it includes.
