The Cost Estimator below generates estimate fees as a reference guideline only based on word count alone.
If your document is ready, please send it through our submission form and we will review it carefully and provide you with a fixed quote. Check out our fair pricing explanation below to understand how we quote on your paper.
Standard Editing includes a first editor reading through the document twice, after which a senior editor carries out a final check.
After Standard Editing you respond to any comments that the editor has inserted, and add any of your own to ensure your meaning has been clearly understood. A Senior Editor then works through your document a final time.
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.
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:
You’re paying too much because your document requires minimal or moderate editing.
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.
Upon invoice payment, you will be issued a loyalty coupon (worth 5% of the paid invoice), valid for 3 months against future invoices.
