Have you written a novel and need someone to edit it? Or do you have some technical documentation that needs another set of eyes? If so, get in contact to see if our team of native English speakers with some skill at writing can help you out.
The process is relatively straight forward, but as with anything, the devil is in the details. Generally, an editing project will start out with a consultation during which we determine the specific requirements for the end product, ranging from the target audience to the specific content requirements. Once that is done, we will provide you with an estimate. If you approve the estimate and provide the source material, we will do the work and return the resulting product to you.
Every project is different. Without the initial consultation, it's not possible to give a sensible price list. However, generally speaking, more complex or more technical documents take more time to edit. Also, documents with more text in them will necessarily take longer. In addition to that, the type of editing you need us to do will affect the cost, too. As with so much else, in editing, time is money.
Again, this depends greatly on the specific project. Specific timelines will be discussed during the initial project consultation. Basically, the more complex or the longer the document is, the longer it will take.
Definitely not. It's your project. However, be aware that we make our editing suggestions for a reason. But also be aware that we may also have misunderstood some aspect of your text and our edits may well be wrong. Editing is a collaborative process so if you think we made an error, question it.
We should, however, be aware that once you accept the quote for a project and we begin working, you are still expected to pay the agreed price, whether you accept the edits or not.
There are, indeed, different types of editing. These correspond to stages in text development. These are, in order of decreasing average effort, and therefore cost:
Not necessarily. It depends what your text is. You may only need someone to do proofreading. Or to do some level of copy editing combined with proofreading. Or maybe you've just completed a first draft of a novel and you need someone to a full on substantive editing job. It's your project. You decided what level of editing is appropriate and communicate that to us. If we disagree, we will tell you our reasons.
