Copy Editing ServicesMore than just fixing typos, copy editing will make your text glow
So you’ve got some writing chops but you’re not 100% that what you’ve is quite right?
After spending too much time with your own writing, you’ll need a fresh pair of eyes to spot tiny errors and fix them. A second look on your writing is the best gift you can do if you’re a fan of DIY copy.
A copy editor like me will look at your text from a different perspective to give your words the edge they need and make you confident that your document is as professional as can be.
And you may be wondering if I only edit website and blog posts copy?
Oh no! There’s so much more I can work on like:
- Social media profiles
- LinkedIn profiles
- Resumes and cover letters
- Annual reports
- Product descriptions
- And so on…
If your project is not in this list, don’t be afraid to ask. There’s sonll a good chance I can tackle it too.
Copy editing can be as simple as having a look for mistakes and fixing basic errors, or as complex as fact checking, evaluating the structure of the text and recommending better words or approaches.
This means each proofreading and editing project can be different, however, I generally tackle these issues:
- Checking for grammar, punctuation and spelling
- Looking at the structure of the text and flow of the information
- Suggesting better wording that is jargon-free
- Avoiding unnecessary repetitions
- Structuring the text for it’s intended medium
- Fact checking to make sure that the statements you make are verified and accurate
What’s the process like?
First, we discuss what your editing needs are and I send you a custom quote. Once the quote is approved, an agreement has been signed and the deposit is received, the work gets started.
Once I’ve made my coffee, I sit down and edit your texts. There may be a round of revision (from your side) if I need you to clarify certain parts of the text or give me proof for some of the statements you make.
If I think a major re-structuring of your information is needed, we’ll agree on the format it will take before I tackle the nitty-gritty of copy editing.
After that, you’ll get a final version of your text that can simply copy and paste where it belongs unless I’ve been copy editing the document it will live on.
Curious to know the nitty-gritty of how we’ll work together? Read about the full process right here.
How much does it cost?
Each copy editing project differs in length, complexity and need. You might only want me to give it a quick glance for typos, or you’ll want the whole she-bang and tackle the structure on top of the wording.
This means I can’t give you a good idea of how much it cost in average because I have yet to see an average copy editing project! You’ll have to contact me to get your specific quote.
