THINKING ABOUT HIRING ME?
Q: What exactly do you check in the text?
That will depend on the client's requirements and the quality of the original text. But I can verify all of the following:
Grammar, spelling and punctuation
Clarity of the message
Coherence and flow
Adequacy of the language level
Tone, mood and style
Completeness of the materials
Design and formatting
Q: What information do you need to send me a quote?
A: I will need to see your text so that I can evaluate the type of work that needs to be done (bearing in mind your brief) and if I am the right person to help you.
I will then edit a sample of your work, which will allow me to extrapolate how long it will take me to complete the job.
Q: Your free sample edit consists of how many words?
A: I will edit for free a portion of your text for the reasons described above. The number of words is dependent on the size of your work, but it shouldn't be more than 500 words.
Q: Are your prices per hour, per page, per project?
A: That depends on the job and its complexity. I will always strive to send you the best price.
Q: Do you guarantee that the text/document will be error free?
A: I can't guarantee that your work won't have any mistakes because I'm human. What I can promise you is that your text will be verified by a professional, using appropriate techniques and tools.
Q: Are you going to change my text or just highlight the mistakes?
A: Whatever you prefer. If you send me a Word file, I can edit the text using Track Changes, and you will be able to see and approve (or not) each correction. In case I'm working on a PDF, I'll use the comment tools to indicate the mistakes.
