Well, for one thing, copywriters don't charge per word; they either have hourly rates or day rates, like any other self-respecting freelancer.
Secondly, shape is right: native spaker/writer is no guarantee of quality. One of the very best CWs on the team I was managing at my old agency was from the Philippines, and was most certain'y not a native speaker.
- I am *clearly* not a native speaker. Just look at those appalling typos.Continuity
- Not long ago, photographers might charge more for the highest resolution files. So, they were charging by the pixelnb
It's been my experience that foreigners speak better English than the English.
Besides the upper class, but then they speak upperclass 'speak' which has random latin words thrown in it along with plenty of 'fucks' and 'buggers'.
Native English? - Ah right ye cunt, no problem me lad, I can't do it toosdays as Ighve gat to luck after me mam, but no problem ya we fucker for rest of t'week, like, mate.

I am looking for a native English speaker/copywriter, who can occasionally rewrite my short jabberwocky texts into beautiful and creative English. The texts are very short, often descriptions of a product and captions to images.
I'm curious who can do that for me, what the best working method is and what it would cost per word or per hour!
