What Costs You Should Expect

The prices listed below are only intended to serve as reference values for your guidance.

Especially with large commissions and student texts, we will gladly meet you half-way in terms of price. Start an inquiry >>

Languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish etc.

The following prices apply to most languages in which we work. Experience has shown that foreign language texts tend to contain more errors, however, so in individual cases it can be somewhat expensive.

Special Student Rate

Discounts of up to 20 % with our student rate are possible depending on the chosen service. For this work we would hire either a tested student—true to the motto: students for students—or a dedicated entry-level employee. In this way we can charge considerably lower fees and, in our experience, still provide good textual work.

Depending on the current order situation it can still happen that your commission will be done by one of our professional and experienced regular editors even when booking with the student rate.

Information About Price Calculation

  • The minimum contract value amounts to: EUR 30.00.
  • One standard page corresponds to 1,500 characters, one standard line 55 characters, in each case incl. spaces. This enables a fair and comparable calculation that is restricted to only the text that we are to work on. Images are not included. The layout (text size, margin width, number of footnotes in small print etc.) do not matter either. Please note however, that such a standardised page or line count is often not consistent with the count displayed in word processing programs.
  • We list our prices both with and without applicable VAT/sales tax. If you as a private person have your place of residence in a European country, 7%, sales tax is incurred for text production services and 19 % for all other text services. Businesses and independent business owners can use the reverse-charge procedure if you have a sales tax identification number. If your business or residence is outside of Europe, no VAT/sales tax will be charged.

Information About Payment

  • We normally work only against full, or in the case of larger projects, partial cash before delivery.
  • You can pay via wire transfer, via TransferWise, via PayPal or in cash. Wire transfer is the usual case. Should you prefer another payment method, please coordinate that with us beforehand, as that could incur fees.
