How much should a person charge for proofreading?
Should a person charge per hour, per word, per page, and how much? I am looking more for casual proofreading prices, not business related proofreading.
That depends on WHAT you proofread. I used to work for a publisher years ago and they paid me a nice salary for proofreading a magazine. The time involved, the level of importance of the material, the difficulty of the subject matter, special terminology involved (do you have to purchase special dictionaries, like if you are going to proof techincal stuff that has its own lingo) all of that goes into the price. After that I worked in different places for a while, and some paid by word, others by line. If you are going to freelance, you have to sit down and consider all of the above.
Wish you well!
That depends on their experience and how long the material is.
I really liked this sheet from the Editorial Freelancers Association on rates: http://the-efa.org/res/rates.php
I charge per hour, but I usually base it on the word count. For instance, if I am proofing a 6,000 word document, I know I can proof at least 3,000 words an hour, so I bid it out as a two hour project. If it winds up taking me longer than two hours, I usually eat the costs, but that rarely happens.
