Is there an additional cost to using more editors for a document?

8 August 2016 | Anders Schepelern

We can only assign one editor to each job. If you split your document up into multiple jobs and send them in at the same time several editors can work on the different pieces, but this requires a very specific brief, even a house style, to maintain consistency of the document. Alternatively, create a small team and only let one or two editors work on your documents.

8 August 2016 | Anders Schepelern

We don’t offer compensation since our editors are paid a specific amount for each job. If you’re not satisfied with an edit, you can send the job back to the editor or even claim your money back.
