In the world of editing there are as many rates and packages as there are commas in a complex sentence. Proofreading, basic editing, in-depth copyediting–each often comes with its own price tag, transforming a simple editing job into a confusing jigsaw of costs. But not at First to Final.

We like to keep things simple. To us, copyediting is copyediting. When you hire us you’ll receive an all-inclusive package. We believe that any quality editing job should cover everything from basic proofreading to in-depth reviewing–all without breaking your bank.

Our philosophy is to charge a flat hourly rate for our editing services, ensuring transparency and simplicity. The final cost will depend on the extent of work needed; kind of like a dimmer switch, you only pay for the intensity of light (or in our case, editing) you need.

So, what does entrusting your project to First to Final get you? Here’s the grand tour:

  • Basic Proofreading: We’ll comb through your content, hunting down and correcting any errors in spelling, punctuation, and syntax. Think of us as the grammar police, always on patrol!

  • Simple Formatting: We’ll make sure your content is as visually pleasing as it is well-written. A well-formatted document is like a well-plated dish–it’s just more appetizing!

  • In-Depth Editing (as needed): If your content needs a little extra TLC, we’re here to provide it. We’ll delve deep into the heart of your message, refining and reworking it until it shines.

  • Review for Idea Clarity and Conciseness: Got a brilliant idea that’s getting lost in translation? We’ll help you pare down your content, ensuring that your ideas are presented clearly and succinctly.

  • Referencing (as needed): Referencing can be a minefield, especially in the academic world where different disciplines have their own unique style requirements. But fear not! We’re well-versed in APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian, and have ready access to many other style guides.

In essence, at First to Final we don’t just edit your content; we finesse it. We’re not just checking boxes, we’re elevating your words. Ready for a smooth editing journey? Hop aboard First to Final–because great writing deserves impeccable editing.
