Stylistic editing clarifies the meaning of the text, improves its flow and makes sure that the language is appropriate for the intended reader. Any recommendations will be made in the electronic document for you to review and make a final decision on. Stylistic editing may be performed at the same time as copy editing.
Copy editing is a detailed edit that ensures correctness, accuracy and consistency. I will verify your document's adherence to the chosen editorial style and check grammar, spelling, punctuation and other mechanics of style. If one does not already exist, I will create a custom style sheet for your project. As in the case of stylistic editing, my recommendations or queries will be made in the document for you to review and make the final decision on.
Proofreading is the final stage of the editorial process. The material is examined in its finished form to ensure that all visual and textual errors are flagged for correction. My keen eye for detail will help to ensure that your publication looks polished and professional.
Your website is often the first point of contact between you and your audience. As with print material, typos and inconsistencies can create a poor first impression. Whether you need someone to look at your posts before they go live, or check your entire site for readability, consistency and usability, I can help.
Fact-checking is important; inaccuracy can quickly undermine credibility. I can help you substantiate the facts in your print or online documents.
