How to work with me

We can customize the workflow as needed, but here’s the usual process:

  1. You contact me with your requirements. Please provide details such as:
  2. If you wish to have a free sample edit, then you can email the document to me and I will send back the sample.
  3. I provide a quotation. We can then discuss whether we are a good match.
  4. We agree on clear terms (e.g., the timeline of deliverables, payment schedule) and you send me the document(s) if you haven’t already.
    • For copyediting/proofreading, I usually work in Word with tracked changes, PDF, or Google Docs.
    • For presentations, it will be PowerPoint (other formats to be discussed).
  5. I submit a draft for review.
  6. You check the draft and provide feedback.
  7. I finalize the document and return it to you.
  8. You make the final payment (and submit a testimonial too please!). Project complete!

I accept payment in USD and EUR via bank transfer/Transferwise (if you sign up via this link, you’ll get a free transfer to try it out). We can also discuss alternate arrangements (e.g., PayPal).


You will find that I offer an affordable rate for excellent value. My clients have told me that I exceeded their expectations and most have come back for more.

I usually quote a per-hour rate in the range of EUR25-30. I’m happy to provide per 1,000 words (or other units) if you prefer.

The quotation and final price will depend on the requirements of the individual project. Please contact me for a commitment-free sample edit and consultation.

My rate is informed by suggested rates published by the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (UK).
