Question Proofreading rates...

I am wondering what a "typical" rate for proofreading is and if it is better to be paid by the page or by the hour.

When I did if for my clients I charged $30 an hour for reading,editing, proofreading. Hope that helps. The other way to do it is to go by per project. Estimate how many hours you think it will take you and give a flat fee.

Hope that helps,

Michelle

I did it by the project. Unfortunately, I don't edit often enough to know how long it will take me, so the few times I've done it, I've undercompensated myself. Just keep that in mind, don't sell yourself short!

Indeed. I tend to add on two to 3 extra hours so I can reduce stress and give myself breathing room. That could be an option. I mean why not add in 5 hours so that you can guarantee you'll have time to really do it right.
