Editing & Proofreading
Typographical errors, unclear phrasing, and misplaced information can decrease credibility, confuse an audience, and cost you business.
Our editing and proofreading services address these issues by improving the consistency, conciseness, accuracy, and clarity of your written and graphic products.
Each copyediting service level includes mechanical edits (such as assuring correct grammar, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and use of acronyms, numerals/numbers, and lists); review for appropriate referencing and permissions; and suggestions to enhance the overall quality and effectiveness of your work.
We offer three levels of copyediting—light, basic, and heavy—depending on the nature and scope of revision.
