These rates are general and my committed price after assessment of the work (if applicable) will be the final quote.
(refers to producing a typed transcript from an audio recording)
Single speaker or two speaker clear recording R660 per audio hour
Multi speaker clear recording R715 per audio hour
Unclear recordings may necessitate an audio clean up which could cost more and compromise transcript quality.
I prefer to assess recordings before committing to a rate.
R27.50 an A4 page – plain single spacing
R13.75 an A4 page – double spacing
Typing which includes graphics R36.30 a page
Other page sizes and line spaces to be discussed.
Proofreading / editing rates
Proofreading is charged at the rate of R60 per standard page. A standard page is 1800 characters (with spaces). To calculate your cost, take your document’s total character count including spaces and that will give you your total standard pages. I calculate my rates this way in order to eliminate confusion and standardise charges because of factors like varying font sizes, line spacing, etc. Documents can be charged per chapter, or in total. Please contact me should you need further clarification.
