To provide a simple and transparent pricing system, the prices of all jobs are calculated per word.
To estimate the cost of editing your document, simply multiply the number of words (see bottom left of Word document) by the cost per word.
Proofreading service: from 5 yen per word
Editing/copyediting service: cost of proofreading service + 30%
- The cost per word is based on the amount of work that I think the document will need. I try to charge 5 yen per word whenever possible!
- Minimum price for job: 5000 yen.
- Prices exclude 10% consumption tax.
- Discounts are available for larger jobs of over 5000 words (see FAQ). A 20% discount is also given to students (up to and including PhD level) and non-profit organizations.
- Please see FAQ for more details or contact me with any questions or to place an order.
- Payments to be made by bank transfer (furikomi) within one month of the date on the invoice.
