Proofreading Contract

Proofreaders have to invest considerable amounts of time and directed efforts into their jobs, making proofreading one of the most strenuous careers in the writing/editing sphere. It is all about the attention one pays to details and having a keen eye for irregularities.

But the good part for professionals is that proofreading, despite the tough job it is, is an essential and highly in-demand skill. Nothing beats the fact that without proper proofreading/editing, even the most artistic of written content is not print-ready.

If you are looking to start a proofreading career, then future is a good place for sure. Knowing your profession's worth in the market however is not enough for a good start. Starters should be updated about all the market dynamics and how one can break into it.

Moreover, know-how of business matters is a must as well for a successful proofreading career. You see, no matter how good of a proofreader you are, you need to be equally proficient at managing finances, legalities and official affairs to maintain your professional prosperity. This is where Bonsai comes in with its excellent service of providing guidance in documentation that keeps your business running smoothly. For proofreaders, we have a range of expertly drafted Proofreading Contracts.

Contracts are the very infrastructure upon which professional projects work and also serve as security measures against exploitation of service providers. With a good contract in place, you can solve potential disputes before the project even starts, and you also have a lot of protection if anything still goes wrong.

There is a vast range of clauses that you might want in your proofreading contract. We mention a few of them here. For a more detailed introduction, read this blog post.

Financial clauses are the most important. You specify your rates, payment schedule and method in these which safeguard you against any payment issues. Work duties also are predefined in a contract so no client asks you to work otherwise and do proofing/editing that was not a part of the original agreement. Ownership/Copyright clauses identify what legal rights you have over your work after the project has ended. These are pretty important if you intend to re-use past works in some way, such as in your public portfolios as samples.

Now what remains is a contract draft for your prospective clients. Leave that to Bonsai and we won't disappoint.
