ESL’s fee is calculated by word count and level of editing required. Thus:
Light Edit (Copyediting and proofreading on the word and sentence levels): 3 cents/word
Medium Edit (All of the services of the Light Edit plus usage corrections and suggestions on the sentence and paragraph levels): 4 cents/word
Heavy Edit (Light + Medium + structural and continuity suggestions on the document level): 5 cents/word
All estimates above are based on a standard 250-word manuscript page. All charts will be calculated as having 50 words. Jobs can also be billed at a page rate of $8 per or an hourly rate of $40 per.
Projects of great length – including dissertations and academic textbooks – can be decided on an individual basis.
All prices negotiable for impoverished graduate students.
