MUKA MEDIA’s Services in summary include:

Proofreading – Level 1
This is the most basic service. We look for “surface errors” – typing, spelling, or poor grammar and mark them on the text or on-screen. Charge is per-page or per-hour.

Copy Editing – Level 2
After a basic proof, we work on issues such as syntax, structure, repetition, redundancy, contradiction or inconsistency. This usually takes 3 times longer than proofing. Charge is per page or per hour.

Developmental/Substantive/Stylistic EditingLevel 3
This is a comprehensive phase. It involves restructuring phrases, sentences, paragraphs or whole sections for better coherence, clearer logic, more appropriate vocabulary and to add context where necessary. It may include rewriting. Charge is on a per hour basis or as a flat project fee for all services.
