If you have a finished document and need it checked for simple errors before printing, proofreading is best for you. This service is designed to correct:
- Basic grammar
- Typological errors
- Layout errors (if your document is ready for printing)
As a courtesy, areas of the document that are unclear or awkwardly worded may be highlighted. See copy editing if this level of service is required.
Copy editing is designed to improve draft writing that is not yet ready to print. As well as correcting many of the errors also covered by my proofreading service, I will also improve:
- Word choice
- Passive voice
- Wordy or redundant sentences
- Gendered language
Unlike proofreading, I will not correct printing layout issues while performing copy editing. As copy editing is a comprehensive service that may radically alter the finished word count, I recommend that you do not lay out the text ready for printing until after copy editing has taken place.
- Proofreading: $0.02 per word, with a minimum charge of $20
- Copy editing: $0.04 per word, with a minimum charge of $40
