How much will it cost?

It depends... a most annoying answer, but true. Projects are costed individually and estimates are based on:

  • service (copy-edit or proofread?)
  • scope (a one-off or a series of discrete tasks?)
  • size (number of words?)
  • format (Word document or PDF?)
  • condition of material (one author, or multiple contributors?)
  • delivery deadline.

For example, a bi-fold marketing leaflet would probably require a straightforward proofread. On the other hand, a 30-page report written by three separate authors would probably require a copy-edit.

Sight of copy to be edited is the most effective way for me to assess a job. The more information I have, the more accurate my estimate will be.
