Hello, I just received my first-ever proofing job for a 4-minute sound file. 2 sound files are given, and I'm supposed to check whether they are correctly matched. I'm just wondering how much should I charge for this particular proofing job. I would appreciate it if anyone can give suggestions. Thank you so much.

Charge whatever you would normally charge for checking by the hour

Always charge proofing/reviewing by the hour. A bad 100 word job can take you longer to patch up than a good 1000 word job. Charging by the hour garanties you get paid for your time.

And if they're not? What must you deliver? A text file with time codes and explanations of the corrections? It may take you an hour for this job...
