A note about confidentiality

Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to Words Infinity.

We will never share your material with a third party without your consent. We value you as our client and we respect the work that you have put into your project.

 

What you can expect from Words Infinity

At Words Infinity, we take the time to gain a thorough understanding of each project. We, therefore, engage with you to learn more about the scope and the nature of the work required. Depending on the nature of the engagement, we enter into a written agreement with you, detailing the project deliverables, fees, and both parties’ responsibilities.

Please contact us to discuss your specific editing needs. 

PEG membership and how it benefits our clients

Clients can enjoy peace of mind when dealing with Words Infinity as a member of the Professional Editors’ Guild (PEG). PEG represents practitioners like us who operate in the South African publishing industry, corporate communications, and media.

As a PEG member, we abide by the Member Code of Conduct, and contribute to the achievement of its overall objectives:

  • To maintain and to enhance the profession’s performance standards.
  • To raise awareness that subediting, copy editing, and proofreading are crafts that require particular skills and knowledge.

Our fee structure

Our fees are negotiable, depending on the nature and the duration of assignments. Retainer agreements, for instance, can attract a reduced rate. Shorter, ad hoc projects should be remunerated at an equitable hourly rate.

Clients can rest assured that our fees comply with the tariffs recommended by the Alliance of Language and Media Practitioners (LAMP), of which PEG is a founding member.
