What Does Formatting Cost?
At times, formatting a document can be challenging and not just a matter of clicking a few settings. Therefore, we set up the document to ensure proper behind-the-scenes formatting, if this has not been done already.
Our formatting service starts by setting up the document’s formatting correctly using Styles in MS Word. Then, we review every element in the document to ensure it has the correct formatting. This requires some back and forth to standardise everything. Occasionally, programs like Word may ignore some formatting due to embedded formatting that is not obvious. In some cases, we may need to retype those sections.
If retyping the document is more cost-effective and quicker than formatting it, we will recommend it to you. However, if the document is suitable for formatting, we will format it accurately.
Formatting Rates Inclusions and Value Adds
Our formatting rates include:
We take care to maintain consistent formatting standards across all elements of your document. We ensure uniformity in every detail, from font to spacing to headers and footers. By prioritising standardisation, we create a cohesive and professional document that is sure to impress.
We have designed our formatting settings to give you complete control over the appearance of your document. With just a few clicks, you can easily change your font type, font size, line spacing, and many other formatting elements. Best of all, we handle all the initial setup for you, so you can focus on creating content rather than struggling with formatting issues. Whether you need to make quick changes or overhaul your entire document, our format settings make it easy to achieve the perfect look and feel for your needs.
We understand the importance of creating organised and easy-to-navigate documents. That’s why we offer an automated table of contents and list of figures/tables formatting for your convenience. We will work with you to identify the areas in your document where these features are needed, setting them up to ensure readers can easily locate and reference information. By leveraging our expertise in formatting, you can be confident that your document will have a well-structured and user-friendly design.
We take pride in our meticulous approach to document formatting. Therefore, it is important to us to deliver an error-free document to you. For this reason, we review the document multiple times to ensure we don’t miss anything. By conducting several rounds of reviews, we catch mistakes or oversights, ensuring your document is polished and professional.
Factors Influencing Formatting Rates
These factors include but are not limited to:
Extent of Formatting
We understand that each document is unique and therefore requires a customised approach to formatting. Some documents may only require minimal formatting while others may need a more extensive overhaul to achieve the desired look and feel. Consequently, the level of formatting required determines our pricing. We will work with you to assess your formatting needs and provide a transparent quote based on the specific scope of work.
Complexity of Formatting
While basic formatting elements such as font size, font type, and line spacing are relatively simple to implement, more complex formatting requirements such as inserting references, creating tables, and formatting headings can be more time-consuming and challenging. Therefore, the level of formatting needed for a particular document is key in determining the cost of our service.
