Rates and payment


Rates depend on the type of service required and the length and complexity of a task.

In most cases I need to view the document to evaluate its content before I can provide an estimate for my services.

Rush jobs with tight deadlines may incur additional costs.

My rates are guided by the results of surveys done by the Southern African Freelancers’ Association (SAFREA), and the Alliance of Language and Media Practitioners (LAMP) which is found on the Professional Editors’ Group (PEG) website.

Please note these rates are not fixed and my rates will differ, depending on the complexity of the work.
