Editors plan, review, and revise content for publication, but this process can be done at differing levels:
  • Proofreading is checking for minor errors like punctuation, spelling, etc;
  • Copyediting  focuses on grammar, spelling, punctuation, other mechanics of style, including consistency and accuracy of facts, repetitive and nuisance words;
  • Editing includes proofing and copyediting and delves deeper into your work, may rewrite sentences, charater consistency, plot problems, story structure, etc.

As a basis, EditAlley charges anywhere from 3 cents/word for proofreading to 10 cents/word for deep editing, and starts at $20/page for complicated form creation (US dollars). 

Some services may cost less some more.
