What type of editing do I need?
Proofreading: A final check for typos and small errors.
Copyediting / substantive editing: A detailed look at every aspect of the text. From spelling and grammar to overall consistency and logic, with rewriting, where necessary.
It’s a subeditor’s job to identify and correct:
- Typos and spelling mistakes
- Incorrect punctuation
- Problems with sentence and paragraph structure
- Issues with clarity, logic or flow
- Inconsistences with tenses, names and general statements
- Use of jargon
- Repetition and redundancies
What I can do for you:
- Annual reports
- Business cases
- Website text
- Press releases
- Proposals / pitches
- Newsletters / email campaigns
- Legal documents
- Technical documents
- Research papers
- Job application letters
- Foreign-language (ESL) documents
- I can prepare detailed background notes for projects of every size.
- Need to turn a 20,000-word report into a shorter summary? I can isolate and condense the key points to make it easier to digest.
