Proofreading

Proofreading checks for errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar, and is the final step of the editing cycle. Before you submit a manuscript for this type of edit, it should already have received a line/copy edit.

Proofreading is a find and destroy service for the following:

  • Mechanical errors
  • Misspelled words
  • Punctuation errors and omissions
  • Typographical errors
  • Incorrect or missing capitalisation
  • Unnecessary spaces, hard returns, line breaks and tabs.
  • A final polish on your vocabulary, expression and consistency


The starting rate for this service is

US$5 per 1000 words*

$0.005 per word*

*Please note a higher rate may apply if your manuscript needs additional time and attention. I’ll assess this based on the sample you send, and confirm the rate and projected total before we start.
