Copyediting is an in-depth review of the text – line by line, sentence by sentence – searching for and correcting:
A copyedit will also improve the flow, improve the readability, and highlight any inconsistencies or ambiguities.

I can guarantee that at the end of the process, you will recognise your work and your style. I will not change your work or remove your ‘voice’.
I wrote a blog post to tell you!
And I wrote another one to tell you how your manuscript should be formatted for copyediting!
I return two copies of the work: a Clean copy that shows only comments, and a Markup copy which will show every change made to the original. You can accept or reject these changes, as you like.
I also build you a Style Sheet while I’m editing (if you don’t already have one), and return it with your manuscript.

For businesses, I can help translate your technical text into something suitable for those without your extensive knowledge. See my BUSINESS page for specifics.
