- My hourly rate for editing services is CHF 100 (CHF 75 for self-paying students). The amount of time I need for editing depends not only on the length of the text but also on quality of writing in the original text and the level of editing requested (see below). I can provide a cost estimate after an initial review of the text if necessary.
- I usually require one week to edit a manuscript for a journal article of standard length, but I try to accommodate more urgent deadlines. Please include your preferred deadline in your request. For larger assignments (e.g. books, reports, websites) I work with the author to arrange deadlines.
- I add my suggestions electronically, using the ‘Track Changes’ function in Microsoft Word, the OverLeaf interface (for LaTeX documents), or the editing tools available in Adobe Acrobat (for PDFs).
- I offer translation services (German to English) in addition to editing assistance. Please contact me to discuss your specific translation needs.
Standard language editing
CHF 100 per hour = approx. CHF 60 per 1000 words
I complete meticulous language editing so that readers can easily focus on the science you present.
CHF 100 per hour = approx. CHF 100 per 1000 words
In addition to completing standard language editing, I carefully consider the scientific content of the manuscript. This part takes more time but often makes more of a difference to the scientific impact and publication success of the paper. I believe this input is what sets my work apart from many other language editing services.
