Copyediting and Proofreading Service



Pricing Proofreading Can Be Confusing

Since some proofreaders charge by the hour, by the page, or by the word, price comparisons can be simply impossible. You may need to request a quote from several companies to get a definitive price. Nonetheless, many do offer at least ballpark pricing information online. To simplify the process, I have provided my current rates as well.

How Much Does Proofreading Cost If You Pay by the Hour?

With my proofreading service by the hour, you will not discover the final cost until the job has been finished. My current rate is $45 per hour, with a $20 minimum.

How Much Does Proofreading Cost If You Pay by the Word?

It is much easier to know ahead of time how much proofreading will cost if you choose to pay by the word. With me, a 1,000-word document would range in price from approximately three cents per word ($30) for a one-week turnaround time to six cents per word ($60) for an eight-hour turnaround time.

My freelance proofreader services have no hidden fees. I have the qualifications needed to do a good job, and you may get a refund if you are dissatisfied with the work. There is a minimum order of $20 and high-quality proofreading is guaranteed.
