Terms and Conditions

  1. I edit to a style guide agreed with you.
  2. I edit in Microsoft Word with track changes switched on, unless agreed otherwise with you.
  3. I attach my own template to documents. It applies industry standard styles and chapter headings. If you have any special formatting requirements, please let me know.
  4. Copy-editing includes one round of checking any changes implemented. This is not another read-through. Further work beyond this will incur a charge at my hourly rate. We will discuss this course of action and put an agreement in writing before I start such work.
  5. There are certain topics that I will not work with. If you know that your text contains graphic violence towards humans or animals, please let me know. If I come across anything I cannot deal with during the course of my work I will communicate with you promptly so that we can come to an arrangement.
  6. If, for any reason, I foresee a problem with meeting your deadline, I will communicate with you promptly.
  7. If you deliver your work to me late, deadlines and prices will have to be re-negotiated. Bear in mind that a few days of delay will have an impact on my next job and on my other commitments.
