  1. Scribendi Inc. Great to Work For!

    Pros
    – Ideal to work for on a freelance basis – have a minimum amount of 10,000 words a month that you must edit, but ideally you should do much more.
    – You can pick and choose what kind of documents you would like to edit from one day to the next: maybe a business brochure, a manuscript, or an academic article.
    – Always pay on time.
    – Excellent communication with freelance editors; you really feel like you are part of a team.
    – Excellent online training courses provided for free. These are mandatory, but you receive a bonus for completing them, and they are super informative.

    Cons
    – Your editing speed has to be fairly fast, ideally you earn $20 dollars an hour, but that is based on how many words you edit. If you are slow, it might not be worth the money. If you are fast/experienced, you can earn a lot with them.
    – Some of the documents are written by ESL (English as a Second Language) clients. This means it can sometimes take a while to edit, as English is not their mother tongue.

    Requirements?
    – You need to have at least three years editing experience to work with Scribendi,.
    Ideally a Master´s degree or a PhD (not essential, but they like it when you do).
    There is a rigorous editing test which will really test (!) you.
    No fees or costs needed to apply.

    What’s pay like?
    – $20 dollars an hour at least, with potential to earn more, depending on your editing speeds.
