How are proofreading rates calculated?
Proofreading rates can be calculated in several different ways. You can set your rate:
- Per word
- Per page
- Per hour
A per-word rate is generally the most precise, since it closely reflects the amount of work you’ll have to do. But it can be confusing for clients to parse at a glance; one solution is to quote per 1,000 words so the numbers involved are clearer.
