Copyediting

Copyediting is the process which the editor carefully combs the entire manuscript or document to refine the following:

  • Sentence structure
  • Grammar
  • Spelling
  • Word choice
  • Organization and flow

Copyediting rate

Our copyediting rate ranges from $60 – $120 an hour. The cost of copyediting depends on the quality of writing in the original manuscript and the requested turnaround time. In general, manuscripts that require lighter editing and a longer turnaround time will be quoted at the lower end of our range, while manuscripts that require heavier editing and a short turnaround time will be quoted at the higher end.

Our editors will review your manuscript or document to quote you the exact cost and turnaround time. The quoted price is all-inclusive without any further hidden costs.

We are able to copyedit a wide range of works. Examples of works that we commonly copyedit include:

  • Website copy
  • Blog posts
  • Press releases
  • Personal statements and CVs
  • Academic papers and manuscripts
  • Theses

We request manuscripts to be submitted in Microsoft Word format as we use its track-change and comment functions when editing your manuscript so that you can review the edits more easily.

Proofreading

We also offer proofreading services. Proofreading is intended for manuscripts that are ready for publication to catch minor problems such as the following:

  • Typographical errors
  • Spelling errors
  • Minor grammatical errors

Our proofreading rate is $50 an hour. As a general rule, the turnaround time for proofreading is much faster than copyediting. Our editors will review your manuscript or document to quote you the exact cost and turnaround time.

If your manuscript is not ready for proofreading following our editors’ review, we will quote you a price based on our copyediting rates.
