The problem is, different works require different amounts of contribution.  I’ve edited works from good writers who’s first language is English and had an easy time, because most of the work was technical in nature.  I’ve also had work where the literature was from a non-English speaker where most of the effort involved was simply trying to make sense of what the author was trying to say, let alone merit its correctness.
