Proofreading Services

What can I expect?

First of all, you can expect professional, quality proofreading and light editing of your document. My communication with you will be timely and friendly. My standard is to return projects with word counts below 4,000 words within 24 hours, but often much sooner (see more below). For example, if you are under a tight deadline for a longer document, I may be able to accommodate your timeline, depending on my workload.


I will send you the corrected, final version of your document, and will also include a copy of the document with corrections and comments using Word “Track Changes” and “Comments” so you can see the changes I’ve made. To respect your privacy or corporate proprietary information, I will keep the document for two weeks (shorter if you wish), until we’re certain you’re happy with it, then will permanently delete it.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

How do I submit a document?

Simply contact me by email (proofingexcellence@outlook.com) with a description of your project and any specific instructions or questions. I will reply, answering your questions and stating the cost. You can then attach the document in an email back to me.

I’m located in the Eastern Time Zone in the U.S., and will respond quickly to emails sent between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

How much will it cost?

I charge just $0.008 per word for the standard turnaround times below. ($5.00 minimum)

  • First 4000 words: 24 hours (often less)
  • 4000 – 10,000 words: 2 days
  • 10,000 – 20,000 words: 3 days
  • More than 20,000 words: we will come to an agreement about the turnaround time

If you are under a tight deadline and desire a faster completion time, the cost will be $0.012 per word for half the times listed above.

How does the payment work?

When I return the completed document to you, I will include an invoice. Payment is due within seven calendar days. You will pay via PayPal with your credit or debit card, PayPal account, or PayPal Credit. However, you don’t need a PayPal account to make the payment.

If the project is more than 20,000 words in length, an initial payment of 20% is required, and the remainder will be invoiced upon completion.
