Truly Affordable Proofreading
Magnum Proofreading is a professional English proofreading service for academics and self-published authors who require an affordable option for their editing needs.
To have 50,000 words proofread by a major proofreading company can cost over $1,500. Such fees are somewhat understandable, as these companies have costs to cover and employees to pay. Unfortunately, not all authors can afford to hire these services. As such, these companies really should not be claiming that their rates are “affordable.” Paying the going rate of roughly $0.02 per word can be a huge financial burden for some authors. The situation is especially distressing for authors who do not speak English fluently but who wish to reach an English-speaking audience. Such authors truly need a professional proofreader, and I certainly don’t think they should need to pay over $1,500 to have 50,000 words proofread.
To help such authors, I decided to use my experience and skills to provide an affordable proofreading service that’s actually affordable. Magnum Proofreading opened for business in 2017, and I have helped many authors produce eloquently-written and error-free essays, PhD theses, academic journal articles, and books over the past year. I take pride in charging my clients as little as is needed to keep Magnum Proofreading afloat. With rates as low as 0.45¢ per word, you can have 50,000 words edited by a professional proofreader for as little as $225.
While Magnum Proofreading’s rates can be as low as 15% of what other proofreaders charge, don’t worry that you are sacrificing quality by paying so little. One reason Magnum offers such low rates is that Magnum Proofreading is a modest, independently-run business with operating costs that are much lower than those of its competitors. More importantly, unlike its competitors, Magnum Proofreading’s main objective is not to generate profit—it is to help writers produce the best work they can. Of course, with such cheap rates, skepticism is to be expected. If paying 0.45¢ per word seems too good to be true, feel free to check out some customer testimonials, or you can view an example of my editing service. If you would prefer to see first-hand how your work can be improved by Magnum Proofreading, you are encouraged to request a free sample.
You write because you want to share something about yourself—your knowledge, your experiences, your ideas—with the world. I edit because I want you to be able to communicate your message as effectively as possible. Whether it’s a piece of research that you’re hoping to have accepted by an academic journal, or a novel which you have spent countless hours working on, your work is important to you. That means it’s important to me, too! I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Magnum Proofreading offers several options to meet your time and budget requirements.
Standard Proofreading Service
This is my most commonly-requested service. Your document will be proofread at the standard speed of approximately 10,000 words per day. The cost for this service is 0.7¢ per word. This service is recommended if your document contains over 10,000 words. This is also the best choice if your document is short but is needed in under forty-eight hours.
Economic Proofreading Service
Your work will be proofread at a speed of approximately 2,500 words per day. The cost for this service is 0.6¢ per word. This service is ideal for small projects that are not urgent. This is also a good choice if you have a large project but need the cheapest rate possible.
Express Proofreading Service
You are guaranteed that your document will be edited at a rate of at least 15,000 words per day. At 0.9¢ per word, the cost for this service is still well below the industry average. This service is for you if your work absolutely must be proofread as soon as possible.
