Freelance editing - what to charge - URGENT

My sister has landed some work doing freelance editing. The only problem is that she has been asked to name her price and doesn't really know what people who do this charge. She needs to give a quote soon so if any of you who do this kind of work could reply soon, that would be great.

Hilary, is this as in journalistic type editing (ie sub-editing)? If so then I would have thought a day-rate of £70-£100 would be reasonable, perhaps even more. That's outside London by the way. If it's book editing or similar then I don't know, sorry. If it's piecework as it were then it might be easiest if she worked out how long it would all take her and did a fee based on a reasonable day rate. HTH

Have you tried looking at the National Union of Journalists web site? I think they publish a guide to freelance rates. HTH
