pay for editing?

Are many of you linguaphiles experienced transaltors?

So I'm translating a novel, and at the end I really want to hire an editor. I was wondering if I could make a set price, or if this kind of work is generally paid by the word? (There are 151,000 words)

Sorry if this is really off topic!
As an apology, here is a really funny German word:
Streichholzschächtelchen
means little box of matches
