Editing for content and context requires an understanding of the author's intended impact to ensure that every sentence guides readers toward the mark. Authors whose works are moving from one country to another frequently find content/contextual editing useful in "translating" their culture and societal mores for their new country's audience. The fee ranges between $8.95 and $25.00 per double-spaced page.
Editing English translations requires careful selection of language that carries the nuances the author wishes to convey. Years of experience translating from ancient languages into modern text, Spanish-to-English, French-to-English, Russian-to-English, Chinese-to-English and Japanese-to-English texts ensures that your narrative achieves the right tone.
The fee ranges between $7.95 and $25.00 per double-spaced page.
Juvenile projects are edited according to the needs of the target audience and publishing industry expectations by an award-winning book editor.

This professional writing service puts the final polish on the manuscript. Since all work is tailored to the individual needs of each manuscript, the fee ranges between $4.00 and $6.95/double-spaced page.
Line editing works intensively to adjust higher-level language choices, vary sentence structure, smooth transitions between paragraphs, adjust transitions between subsections/scenes, and similar line-by-line elements. Since the work is tailored to the needs of each manuscript, the rate falls between $6.95 and $12.50 per page.
If the project is longer than average, a flat rate is applied because the per-page rate would become prohibitive.
Fees for juvenile projects are calculated differently; see below.
