How Much Does Editing Cost In South Africa?

The service is designed for authors who have completed their manuscripts and require an editor to improve the quality of their writing.  We use Microsoft Word which makes it easy for the author to accept, reject or modify the manuscript. Though we have a standardised process, more personalised services are available to suit your individual needs. We take confidentially very seriously, ensuring that we never leak-out people’s work.
