Have a question to ask?

I am worried about my work getting stolen. What to do?

We understand your anxiety. The manuscript is a result of months and years of your hard work and it is important that they are safe. Tholga is a professional organization and by default enters into a non-disclosure agreement as we agree on a project. Your work is not shared with any other party.

How long does it take to edit my work?

The time needed to edit your work (the turnaround time) depends on the length of the manuscript and the level of editing requested. For reference, a 6000-word manuscript needs 3 working days for light or standard editing and 5 working days for substantive editing.

The turnaround time for other services is difficult to tabulate and will be agreed on based on the project.

How much does it cost?

The total cost for your service is determined based on editing a 500-word sample of your work. We estimate the total cost based on the the efforts involved. The total cost and the turnaround time are clearly communicated before we start work.

How many revisions are included in the service?

A revision refers to the subsequent round of review for the incorporation of responses to our queries and does not involve carrying out the service again.

One revision is included for light and standard editing and most of the other services; for substantive/thesis editing and writing projects, two rounds of revisions are included in the plan.
