How Much Does Business Editing & Proofreading Cost?

Business editing and proofreading services rates vary based on a variety of things. Often times rates vary based the length of your document or the level of edit requested. Some companies also separate the level of effort based on proofreading, copy editing, and content editing. There are other editing companies who separate their rates based on the type of document—a business document versus an academic dissertation or thesis.


Some online business editing and proofreading companies charge for editing by the word, while others charge by the page. If you are being charged per page, you will want to know how many words are considered one page. Some business editing services have different prices for various turnaround times, while others charge a flat rate regardless of the turnaround time.


It is important that you check how the editor you choose sets prices so that you can be clear on what the cost will be before you get started. Rates for business editing and proofreading services will be higher for quicker turnaround times. Giving an online business editing and proofreading company one week to edit your document will be less expensive than requesting that you have your document back within 24 hours. Editing rates for a 1-2-day turnaround for a 10,000-word document can vary drastically, ranging from $350-750; rates for a 7-10-day turnaround for a 10,000-word document can range from $228 to $317.


What’s important is that you do your research before choosing an online business editing service, especially if their rates are not accessible from their website. At Editor World, we charge by the word and all of our editing rates—be it academic, business, creative, or otherwise—are completely transparent. We list our rates on Our Prices page and even offer a price calculator so you always know what your full rate will be.
