Our fees are negotiable and are agreed before we start work. They are influenced by the following factors:
  • Number of indexable pages or words
  • Complexity or difficulty of text
  • Size of index required

All of the above would influence the number of hours worked and hence the rate negotiated.

In addition, the following factors have a bearing:
  • Turnaround time
  • Budget of the publisher
Because there are so many variables it is difficult to provide a 'ball-park' figure. Our rates start from £24.00 per hour, £2.66 per page or £7.25 per thousand words for basic texts. Rates may be higher for more complex texts. These rates tie in with the Society of Indexers recommendations.
