Proofreading & editing category definitions
What rate applies to my work? To find out into which category you fall, please email us with a 300-word sample of your dissertation, paper, article or manuscript. We promise to give you an answer based on honesty, not avarice.
Standard: not too many corrections are required, quantified by working on a sample beforehand and resulting in a correction rate of less than 15% of the total word count.
Heavy: for those, i.e. ESL or dyslexic clients, who might need an extra bit of help with their writing. Each sentence is analysed, interpreted and then rewritten, where necessary, with a view to presenting your work in a grammatically correct fashion. Quantified by working on a sample beforehand and resulting in a correction rate of over 15% of the total word count.
