EditFast is an online proofreading and editing service with major clients including governmental, scholarly, corporate and online entities in the U.S. and Canada. EditFast engages home-sourced, qualified editors on a contract basis to complete tasks that may be assigned directly by clients or by EditFast acting as the client.
Prospective editors must have a university degree and be fluent in English. A computer, an Internet connection and conventional word processing software are all necessary. Additional preferred qualifications include prior proofreading and editing experience, proofreading and editing courses, or an English degree. Other assets include specialized knowledge in certain professional fields as well as experience editing material translated by clients whose first language is not English. When applying, editors must complete resume and web page builders, take editing tests, and approve a non-disclosure agreement.
EditFast provides each client submission with an individualized estimate, so payments vary. A freelance editor submits an estimate after viewing a potential job, and EditFast then adds 40 percent as a fee. Upon completion, the editor submits an invoice and receives payment through PayPal at the end of the following month. Editors can earn additional compensation by submitting original articles complimentary to EditFast using provided formats and keywords.
