The prices quoted below represent the international industry standard, and are quoted in $US. If you are interested in having your work edited, you will need to send me a sample so that I can see exactly what needs to be done, and can estimate how much that will cost you. (Basically, the more work that needs to be done, the more expensive it will be.) Only if you are entirely happy with my work and my prices will we proceed.
