    I think a lot of games could benefit from it, however if there is a demand I dunno... seeing as people generally underestimate that part of game-making (imo) i doubt a lot of people would seek it out.

    There is definitely a demand for that. People tend to have typos, forget words, have sometimes coherence problem, etc. (Myself including lol).

    Thanks for the encouragement, guys. c: Any ideas on rates? I'm thinking 15/h; considering I read 100+ pages of novel in that time, that's really not that bad, lol.

    Honestly I don't know how much people are willing to pay. You should start a thread/workshop in the classified section to offer your service and see if anyone is interested. If no one hires you for 2 weeks, consider lowering the cost.

    If you've got the quality to back it up, 15/h is more than sufficient.

    Considering I legitimately have published editorial credits and will link them on the post... ;)

    I see full-time proofreaders with less language knowledge than I have and their qualities leaving a lot to be desired. References are always a good thing, but I sincerely hope you have the skill and aren't just talk :p

    Of course I don't mean to berate/mock you or your skills. I just saw you state that you could read 100+ pages of a novel in one hour, so I am just saying that hope you're not just speed :)

    Haha, true that. I might offer some discounts initially, just to get some people here I can use as references.

    Sure thing, that sounds like a good idea. Good luck!

    That would be a great thing. I see typo's quite a bit in games and the person having a proofreader would really help them. Plus $15/h would be similar to them buying a tileset. I think they'd be more than happy to go for that especially if they're wanting to sell their game commercially and want it to be perfect.

    I used proof reading in my last completed game. I'm sure it'll come handy for the devs whose primary language is not english.

    @FleshToDust Even for those whose primary/strong language is English it could be useful. I make a lot of typos when I write lol.

    This is one of the "jobs" I had in college. People will pay ridiculous amounts of money to ensure they don't have to do any work. I made a killing doing people's homework.
