I really appreciate your help with answering my previous questions.

I've been offered some freelance part time work by a non-profit dawah website. They basically require me to rewrite/edit their university notes & academic papers to make them reader-friendly, polished & suitable for muslims & non-muslim readers. It also includes reviewing the suitability of references (Quran, hadith, general quotes)& revalidating them.

They have asked me formy work fee expectation. Please let me know how i should calculate my charge (considering this does not require writing new pieces). Should it be per article or per month or a lump sum amount for the entire project?
