Hi, I was assigned proofreading/ editing a medical record Spanish translation.
It is around 40 pages. I assume that the time I take to complete the task will depend on many factors (mistakes, difficulty, and so on) still I would like to know on average how long does it take to proofread/ edit a medical record per page. A rough idea will help.
Thanks in advance.

Just work at it for one hour and see how much you get done.

It sounds as though you've already accepted the job.

It can vary enormously. As a guide for clients, I tell them that I can proofread anything between 750 and 3000 words per hour, and that doesn't include texts which should really be re-translated.

There are simply too many variables to be more accurate than that.
