 Copyediting

 Here are some reasons why you need a copy editor, and what I will do for you:

 

  • Bring a pair of fresh eyes to your piece, and read it differently to you.

  • Bring new perspective to your work.

  • Ensure consistency in your style, or create a style guide for you when needed.

  • Check for accuracy – the websites and phone numbers, or statistics etc mentioned must be correct.

  • Organise your text so that it flows well and makes the reader want to continue.

  • Ensure clarity – each sentence must make sense and lack ambiguity.

  • Create simplicity – over complicated vocabulary doesn't always work, and sometimes what is said in a paragraph can be done in a sentence.

  • Save time and money – by editing your material effectively and ensuring that your work is professional, I save you time in correcting and reprinting. 

Most people don't have the time to check every single word or punctuation mark, nor do most people even want to. It's time consuming and laborious. However, your text, blog, article, story or thesis represents you - it should be perfect and appear professional. Spellcheck can be your friend but also your enemy!  Spell check will not fined words witch are miss used butt spelled rite!

 

Send me your text and I will enjoy proofing it for typos or inaccuracies in spelling, punctuation or grammar - whether it's an article, research paper, short story, blog or website copy.
