My copy-editing service lies somewhere in the middle ground between the writing process and proofreading.
During the copy-editing process, I check the following:
-are there any spelling mistakes, grammatical errors or typos?
-is there consistency in the language usage, style and tone?
-is the content up to scratch? Is it logical, is anything missing, does it flow well?
-are there any glaring factual errors or ambiguities?
-is it appropriate for the target audience?
-is it concise, have you avoided repetition and an overuse of exclamation marks?
Whether editing web copy, a student dissertation or a travel guide, the end game is always the same: providing text which is clear, consistent and completely fit for its intended purpose.
If you suspect your text could benefit from a fresh pair of eyes, get in touch and I’ll happily have a look.
