Payment

Rates

Proofreading and copy-editing rates for documents in Word depend on the length and complexity of the document, the level of editing required, and the turnaround time. However, a minimum charge is applied to jobs with a word count below 1,000.

Proofreading of PDFs is charged at an hourly rate or an agreed fixed fee + VAT. 

Conversion jobs and editorial consultancy are charged at an hourly rate + VAT.

My rates are in line with the minimum rates recommended by the Association of Freelance Editors, Proofreaders and Indexers of Ireland (AFEPI).
