These fee estimates are for reference only.
Our fixed price quote will be based on a thorough assessment of your document’s writing quality.

Below, we introduce our personalised approach and explain why a fixed per-word fee is bad for you. For approximate pricing, please use our cost estimator below.

Pricing Editing the Right Way

At AsiaEdit, we treat editing as the customised and personal service that it is, and not an impersonal, one-size-fits-all solution.

When you upload your document, one of our senior editors personally reads it to determine the extent of revisions necessary to bring it to our high-quality, publication-ready standards. Based on this evaluation and the word count of the document, our customer service manager sends you an interactive quote that shows you the pricing with different delivery dates, add-ons, and discounts.

Why is Per-Word Pricing Bad for You?

While the end goal of all authors is the same – to publish or otherwise put the document to its intended use – the amount of editing work required to reach that goal differs vastly.

Some documents only need a few finishing touches – a comma here, and a word substitution there.

Other documents need moderate revisions:

And a few others require extensive editing:

Assuming all three documents above are of the same word count, the second and third examples require much more time to edit to publication quality than the first example.

This diversity in document quality makes paying a fixed per-word editing fee bad for you as an author. At a fixed per-word rate, one of the following is likely to be true:

Unfair Pricing: You're paying too much because your document requires minimal or moderate editing.
Questionable Quality: You're paying too little for a document that requires heavy editing, meaning that editors who work on a fixed fee are incentivised to hurry through your document to maintain their hourly fees.

AsiaEdit's approach to pricing, based on a personal evaluation of your manuscript, ensures that you pay a fair price while ensuring that your manuscript receives the full editorial attention that it deserves.
