Our proofreading service prices

What are our proofreading services prices? We often get asked how much we charge per page or 1,000 words. At London Proofreaders we charge per 1,000 words (which is really per word, if you think about it). We don’t charge per hour as we find it makes things easier for everyone.

Proofreading and editing price per 1,000 words

We have one simple price for all student/academic documents (apart from longer PhDs).

  • Proofreading price –  £12.50 per 1,000 words – £0.0125 per word. 

Our proofreading prices are highly competitive with other services costing £15-£20 for foreign students. We don’t charge VAT.

Calculate your price

  1. Get your word count from your document
  2. Then multiply it by 0.0125
  3. That will give you the price

What are the benefits of choosing us?

  • We are the ONLY UK company that uses two proofreaders on every document we edit.
  • Our service combines both proofreading and editing in the price.
  • Our standard proofreading service includes both proofreading and editing by two proofreaders. The prices vary according to the amount of work that is required on a text. So for example if you are a student who is writing a dissertation and English is not your first language our proofreaders will require more time as more work is needed and thus the price will be higher than for a native speaker.
