Final checking of hard copy or on‑screen proofs for errors in typography, content and layout
Review of hard copy or on‑screen manuscript for clarity, correction of grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.


Most translations are invoiced on a per-word basis. Proofreading and editing will be charged at an hourly rate.

Every project is different. Although my rates are in line with the industry standard, the final cost will take into account other considerations, such as the purpose of the document, formatting requirements, how technical it is and how quickly you need it.
