4. To provide an accurate quote, the editor needs to receive a brief and view the document. If the document isn’t available at this stage, a rough estimate can be provided if you supply a word count and an idea of the level of editing required.
5. Extra charges may be incurred if:
a. there are changes to the brief after your editor has quoted
b. schedules are tightened, i.e. an element is sent later than agreed, but the deadline remains the same.
6. Try to involve the editor early in the production process. It’s easier and cheaper to incorporate changes before the project goes into the formatting or page layout stage.
