Helping your ideas sing on the page

If you want someone who can do more than just smooth out typos or point out a run-on sentence and want someone who can help improve your writing in ways that are more subtle, you’ve come to the right place.

Our editors will distill detailed and complex information and technical documents into language that is easy to read and accessible to a wider audience or your target market, and will give your written materials the editorial polish they need.

Scope of Editing We offer

Proofreading

Making a final check for errors but not changing words to improve style, clarity, or accuracy. For print projects, this means correcting the print-ready document in its layout phase and proofing for typographic mistakes or misspellings.

Style Editing

Standardising of text to the house/journal style.

Minor Editing

Your document will be checked thoroughly for grammatical errors, misspellings and typographical mistakes and other inconsistencies. I will also suggest minor changes to improve readability/clarity without substantively changing the content. Please choose Technical Editing if considerable changes to language and structure are necessary.

Technical Editing

Correcting misspellings, all grammatical errors, misused words, poor sentence structures, omitted or repeated words, use of punctuation, standardising words in heads, titles, use of single or double quote marks, serial commas, numbers, acronyms, compound words, extracts, italics and illustrations, spelling (American or English), etc.

Substantive/Comprehensive Editing

One round of Technical Editing and another round focusing on improving the overall clarity of the text by addressing any problems with structure or organisation of ideas. Improve sentence phrasing and suggest sections to reword or rearrange as necessary to improve the clarity of the document. Editing to cut down excessively long pieces; altering the voice in a text (from passive to active); checking citations, inserting head levels and approximate placement of art, notifying designer of any unusual production requirements.
