Demonstrating faultless language is of paramount importance. Did you know that spelling errors could cost you up to 50% of sales from your website? The same applies to adverts–each error in the text reduces the price the reader will be prepared to pay for your service. Typos and printing errors can also lead to considerable costs, particularly if this results in the whole edition being pulped. Your entire career can be impacted by your degree qualification, which is, in turn, significantly affected by your dissertation or thesis. Even love letters and personal ads will enjoy more success through being grammatically correct!
I will be happy to proofread your German text, that is, eliminate any typos and grammatical errors. Alternatively, if you feel less secure in expressing yourself in German, I can re-write your text for you—it’s your choice!
Do you need someone to proofread your English or Russian text? Let me point you to the right person.
Proofreading is charged by the hour, at a rate of € 70.00* per hour.
It is difficult to calculate a fixed price, as the amount of time needed for a text depends on how much there is to correct.
In my experience, a simple proofreading job that involves carefully reading through the text to check for typos, spelling, and grammatical errors requires 3 to 4 minutes per page–this results in a minimum charge of € 4.00 per page (1,500 characters).
An editing job is slightly different. As well as checking the text for typos, spelling, and grammatical errors, I also carry out a thorough review in terms of style and consistency. In my experience, I can work through 8 pages per hour, resulting in a price of approx. € 7.00 per page (1,500 characters). These are estimates and both proofreading and editing may cost more depending on the number of corrections and time required.
Revising a translation from English or Russian into German requires a combination of in-depth proofreading and editing. Not only does the text need to be checked for typos, spelling and grammatical errors, style, and consistency, it must be carefully compared with the source text. This kind of work would cost at least € 20.00 per page (1,500 characters).
