Editorial Rates

Our fees are based on the number of pages that are submitted to us for proofreading or editing. As your document may have been prepared with different font types or font sizes, we adopt the industry standard of 250 words to the page. To determine the number of pages, use your word processing software to count the number of words in the document and then divide the number by 250. Please note that we only work with Microsoft Word files (.doc or .docx).

Normal turnaround time is between three and five working days from the date we receive your document by email and would depend on the amount of work involved. We shall also return the proofread or edited work by email. We may agree to accept urgent jobs on a case-by-case basis but this will incur some extra loading cost to you. All rates are quoted in United State Dollars. For urgent jobs, please add an additional 50 percent to the fee.

Package A (Simple Proofreading and Editing)
A special package for students and undergraduates who are working towards their first degree. If your work requires us to proofread and correct your spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, our rate is USD5 per page, subject to a minimum fee of USD10.

Package B (Regular Proofreading and Editing)
This package is tailored to working adults. If your work requires us to proofread and correct your spelling mistakes, typographical errors, punctuation and awkward grammar, our rate is USD10 per page, subject to a minimum fee of USD20.
