Comprehensive Editing

"BIG PICTURE EDITING"

As a comprehensive editor, I will get to know your company, intended audience, and the purpose of your message. I will then use that information to ensure that the document is accessible to your readers, appropriate for your audience, and suitable for your purpose.  Comprehensive editing tasks include:

  • Copyediting.

  • Document planning.

  • Editing for content, style, tone, and structure.

  • Providing feedback on organization, presentation, and visual design.  

Copyediting

"MORE THAN A SPELLCHECK"

As a copyeditor, I will ensure that your document is correct, consistent, complete, and accurate. 

I will edit for:

  • Correctness: Proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar check.

  • Consistency:  Verbal, visual, mechanical, and content.

  • Completeness of parts.

  • Accuracy of terms, numbers, quotations, etc.

Proofreading

"THE FINAL STEP"

Proofreading is generally the final step prior to publishing.

  • Check for typos, grammar, and spelling.  

  • Compare final stage products to the earlier editions to ensure changes have been made correctly.  

Developmental Editing

"LET'S START AT THE BEGINNING"

As a developmental editor, I will assist with developing a project from the initial concept onward.  I will:

  • Work closely with the writer.

  • Study competing works to create a product that stands out.

  • Comprehensively edit.
