EDITING AND PROOFREADING SERVICES
By using our professional editing services you can ensure that your manuscript is of the highest standard and is ready for submission to your publisher of choice. If you are planning to self-publish your work, then a professional edit can give you a competitive edge against other authors as well as increasing the chance that your work will be enjoyed by its readers.
TYPES OF EDITING
This is the most intensive form of editing and involves a thorough manuscript evaluation. The work is checked for problems with structure, organisation, coherency, consistency and syntax. Sentences may be removed or added and paragraphs may be rewritten or shortened. There may be large sections of text moved to other sections of the document and formatting and layout changes may occur.
This is a stage in the editing process which highlights issues with tone, style and inaccuracy. The manuscript is studied on a line by line basis, ensuring each sentence is structured correctly, grammatically error-free and makes sense to a reader. The general flow of the document is analysed and certain issues, like historical inaccuracies or plagiarisms, may be highlighted.
This kind of edit corrects problems with grammar, style, repetition, spelling and incorrect word usage. It also may highlight some obvious inaccuracies or issues with clichés and colloquialisms. Copy editing is usually the final stage in the editing process and is rarely recommended as a service on its own unless the manuscript is already in a very good condition.
This the finishing touch to your document and it is normally performed after any other edits have been completed. Proofreading picks up on small mistakes like spelling errors and punctuation issues but will not check for inconsistencies or errors in the plot.
