Levels of Editing

Line Editing   |   Copyediting   |   Proofreading   |   The Process   |   Resources Used

Line Editing

Line editing focuses on your writing on the paragraph level. Some paragraphs or sentences may be tightened up or revised for clarity and consistency. Line editing (sometimes known as content editing) improves your writing’s readability and flow.

Copyediting

Copyediting focuses on your writing on the sentence level. Like line editing, during copyediting some sentences may be tightened up or revised for clarity and consistency. Copyediting includes:

  • grammar and spelling
  • capitalization and punctuation
  • word choice
  • repeated and omitted words
  • hyphenation
  • unclear sentences
  • overused words
  • consistently spelled names, acronyms, etc.

 

Proofreading

Proofreading is the final check of your work before printing or publishing online. No text is edited or reworded. Proofreading includes:

  • grammar and spelling
  • capitalization and punctuation
  • layout and format
  • repeated and omitted words

 

Don’t let careless mistakes detract from your brand! Let’s talk about how you can give your writing a final polish.

 


The Process

All edits will be made using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature. Upon completion of your project, you will receive a document with all changes accepted for your convenience as well as a copy with all changes marked.
