Editing & Proofreading

Run a professional wordsmith’s eye over your existing copy, checking grammar, style and substance

Proofreading can be a simple word-for-word comparison of one document against another, highlighting any inconsistencies.  This process often incorporates what is more accurately termed ‘Copy Editing’ – checking grammar, spelling, punctuation and internal consistency with presentation of facts.

Substantive editing ensures structure, content, language and style are consistent, effective and appropriate for the intended purpose and readership.

Plain English rewriting takes complex, bureaucratic or technical information and rewrites the material so the meaning is clear to a lay reader.
