rates for proofreading
how much do you charge for proofreading?
Every project is different, so it’s difficult to give an exact cost at the outset. I generally charge in accordance with the suggested minimum hourly rates set by the Chartered Institute for Proofreading and Editing (CIEP). These are currently £25.40 for proofreading and £29.60 for copyediting.
My rates for proofreading and copyediting are usually based on a rate per 1000 words and this is determined by factors such as:
- The number of words in your document.
- The level of intervention needed from me.
- The complexity of the material.
- The quality of the material.
- Your deadline.
