Here are the quotes that I got for our books. $15-35/hr (depends on the qualifications) and we agreed on how long it takes to do the document. $.01-.02/word is another metrics that was quoted to me. By the way, these are from professional firms – not Elance, oDesk or independent freelancers.
The quotes above are for the grammatical editors. Some actually included editing for content in there.
Keep in mind, this is different from an editing doctor.
I use three types of editors.
- Taste editor – They critique me harshly and cross out things all over the place. Tell me I talk too much. They make me cry often but it only makes my content better.
- Grammatical editor – they check my grammar. I do have problems with English as it’s my third language. The mistakes are very consistent.
- Compliance editor – Cut out any materials that shows on my checklist of things not to talk about. Keeps me from getting into hot water with the regulators.
