Editing


Editing is for texts that are still in the process of being finalized. An editor will have a more hands-on approach. Beyond checking your text thoroughly for spelling, grammar and punctuation, an editor will pay close attention to the formatting, style and content, and suggesting ways the text might be rearranged or rephrased to improve clarity.

I offer two main kinds of editing depending on your needs.


Copy-editing

This is a more hands-on editing job which looks for ways to rephrase and restructure the text to communicate ideas with clarity.

Plain Language

Plain language editing means working on the language and presentation of a text to remove jargon and prioritise readability.
