How to hire a great freelance Proofreader

Hiring a freelance proofreader is an ideal way to sharpen up your documents in terms of language, grammar, and structure - all while saving you time. provides a range of incredibly talented proofreaders that excel in helping you clarify your message in any piece of writing.

Frequently asked questions

Q: What does a freelance proofreader do?

A proofreader is someone who examines written documents for incorrect or unclear grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax and sentence structure. They have a quick eye for spotting mistakes and strive to upgrade the quality of your writing, and ultimately your message.

Q: Why should I hire a freelance proofreader?

If you've already spent a lot of time writing something, the extreme familiarity can make it difficult for you to spot your own mistakes. Overlooking mistakes can degrade the quality of your work and your document will lose its intended professional touch. A freelance proofreader is not only a second set of eyes, but they're also a set of eyes that are specifically trained in reviewing all types of written work - allowing them to efficiently and effectively take your document to the next level. They're also relatively inexpensive when compared to other professional skills.

Q: How much does a freelance proofreader cost?

Proofreaders can charge anywhere from $5-$50 per hour. A highly experienced freelance proofreader with a professional background is likely to charge more than the average proofreader and will most likely do light editing and formatting work as part of their service. However, the total cost depends largely on factors like the length of your document, the complexity of your language and the structure of your text.

Q: Do I own the rights to work completed by a freelance proofreader?

Since the freelancer is simply proofreading a document you've already written, the copyright remains with you. However, if you've asked the proofreader to write additional copy for you, you will want to make sure you use the "IP Agreement" upgrade and ask them to sign it before starting the task. Otherwise, they can try to claim copyright on the newly created copy. Signing the IP Agreement can help you avoid any disputes about copyright.
