If you would like a free no-obligation quote, please send a 1000-word sample of your document along with details of the service you would like and the total length of the manuscript. I will edit the sample and return it to you along with an exact quote based on my estimate of how long the entire document will take to edit. This amount will represent the maximum you will be charged – if the work takes less time, you will be charged less accordingly.

I calculate prices based on the exact time the work takes (based on the rates above and rounding up to the nearest 10p) so that you never pay for more work than I do. There is no minimum charge – no job is too big or too small. I accept payment by personal cheque, bank transfer or postal/money order.

Send your document sample via email or by post; complete confidentiality is assured at all times. Quotes are based on the following rates (fixed since 2009):

Proofreading
Per hour: £12

Copy-editing
Per hour: £15 to £18
The precise rate will depend on the amount of intervention required – I will provide an exact quote (and stick to it) when I have seen your document.

English as a second language
Per hour: £15 to £18
As with copy-editing, the precise rate will depend on the amount of intervention required – I will provide an exact quote (and stick to it) when I have seen your document.

Transcription
Per hour: £10
As a guide, a clear audio recording takes approximately 6 times its length to transcribe and check.
