What counts as a correction?
A correction is one continuous deletion, addition, modification, formatting or comment, as counted by Word or Google Docs. We do not count number of characters within each correction. For example, if we delete 4 words from one sentence, that counts as one correction. If we then replace those words with new words, that is still just one correction. If we add in a comma, that counts as one correction.
Why do you charge per correction?
We have found that this way of charging is much fairer to both parties. When you pay a flat rate per word, you will pay the same amount whether you need a light edit or a heavy developmental edit. In both of these transactions, one of us gets shortchanged. Paying per correction reduces a lot of friction associated with the editing process.
