Let’s take a look at a request from Yvonne from Tel Aviv; she has a manuscript of 90.000 words that was translated from Hebrew by an English native speaker. It needs a second reading and language editing that will comply with Brill’s editing protocol (plus references checking).
Yvonne posted the request on the Peerwith marketplace and the next day she’d already received offers from 4 different Experts! She took a day to e-mail back and forth with the possible candidates and only two days after she posted her initial request, she agreed on the proposal that suited her best and connected with Expert Josh Pennington
Several experts respond to Yvonne’s request, including expert Josh Pennington. He responds:
“Hi, I hold a PhD in Linguistics and have edited over 40 published books for Brill. Out of these books, 4 of them have dealt with issues in Jewish Studies, one most recently by Zvi Koenigsberg. My work on these volumes also included reference checking and copy editing. I am not sure what your budget is for this, but these two services usually come to .05 cents per word total. I will give my quote at this price. However, I am willing to negotiate to accommodate your budget. Looking forward to connecting! Best, Josh”
See how Josh mentions in the last paragraph that he is willing to negotiate? This is one of the main benefits of Peerwith; a tailored request for every connection, the opportunity to discuss your work/budget prior committing AND the ability to choose your own editor, so you can reach an ideal outcome for both parties involved! This is precisely why Peerwith is the smartest platform for Academic researchers
Yvonne’s proposed budget was USD $4,000 for the whole work. Yet even though Josh usually charges .05 cents per word, he catered to Yvonne’s wishes and agreed upon the following rate: 0.04 X 100,000 words (approximately +-) = $4,000
DEADLINE AND RESULT
Wishing two weeks of receiving the manuscript, Josh delivered his work. 5 days later he was notified that Yvonne accepted his work and Josh got paid out on the same day. They both left feedback about each other:
Josh about Yvonne:
“Excellent scholar. Yvonne sent a very nice text that was in good shape – just needed fine tuning.”
Yvonne about Josh:
***** (5 stars)
“Josh did an excellent job with my manuscript. He is very accessible and easy to work with. I highly recommend Josh’s services.”
