A copy edit is carried out when you have finished your manuscript and before the proofread. The document is checked for grammar and typos but also for formatting, style, passive voice, content and structure, plot holes, missing information, consistency in tabulation etc.

A copy edit is a more comprehensive clean and tidy than proofreading, which is done when the document is more or less ready for publication, and as such will take longer to complete, of course this varies depending on word count.

Cost of copy editing for a document of between 50 – 70,000 words is €400 – 600 ($473 – 710)
