Working With Us/Pricing

Please use any of the contact forms to send us an instant e-mail – and expect a same-day response. There is rarely a need to meet clients in person and most of our communication is done by e-mail, or occasionally by phone.

Obligation-free quotations are offered free of charge to all potential clients. If you are undecided about which level of editing service to choose, free sample edits on a section of your text can be performed.

When submitting a document for quotation, please: e-mail it in MS Word format, specify the deadline, and list the type of service required. We will then e-mail you a formal quotation within 24 hours. When you have agreed to the quote and paid a 50% deposit upfront by EFT – work will commence. Note that cash deposits attract an additional charge of R7 plus 2% of the invoice amount (minimum charge = R50).

If there are queries during the editing or proofreading process, we will contact you.

All our editing is done with MS Word track changes turned on, and queries and suggestions for improvement are made there with the Substantive Editing option.

Final payment must be made on completion of the work.

Pricing

We offer three main proofreading and editing services, but customised solutions can also be negotiated:

  • Proofreading – R30 per page or 10 cents per word
  • Light Editing – R57 per page or 19 cents per word
  • Substantive Editing – R81 per page or 27 cents per word
