Altschul Consultants - Proofreading at its best!

Proofreading

In the proofreading business the established standard for a “page” is 250 words. So in order to figure out how much a proofreading job will cost you, make a word count of your document and divide it by 250.
This way you do not have to worry about any formatting, just send us your document “as is” and we will do the rest.

Normal turnaround time is five to ten business days from the date we receive the document. Depending on the size of the project we can also do rush jobs, but please be aware that a 30% fee will be charged for this additional service.

In order to be able to guarantee the rates below, please be advised that documents should be submitted as Microsoft Word documents using the “track changes” feature. We are also able to handle PDF (No electronic comment) and hard copies hand noted. For these services as well as courier services etc. an additional fee will be charged.

We offer our quality proofreading services in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and English.

All rates are quoted in Euro (unless otherwise requested) with minimum charge set at €35.00 per project.

Basic Proofreading

This service includes proofreading for spelling mistakes, typos, punctuation problems, capitalization errors, and awkward grammar.
€12.00 per page (250 words) for corrected electronic copy (MS Word file)

Comprehensive Proofreading

This is our most requested service. Comprehensive proofreading is our basic proofreading plus a series of additional features. We will help you with the overall structure of your manuscript. Is your writing clear? Does it make sense? Is your word choice appropriate? Are there any inconsistencies or redundancies in the narrative? Are your characters or situations believable? During the editing process, we will leave you comments and questions in the margin of the document that address these issues and more.

€16.00 per page when marking hard copy or PDF by hand
