List of editors

Often postgraduate students ask us where they can have their theses, dissertations or proposal/s edited. We have compiled a list of freelance editors and associations that offer these services at a fee. Typically they charge by the word, page or hour - it differs from editor to editor and the student's requirements (for example checking writing style versus a comprehensive edit involving grammar, logic, layout and Afrikaans-English translation).

Please contact these service providers directly regarding their CVs, rates and quotes. Remember, it is always a good idea when you approach editors to ask for referees or references too.
