Editing and Proofreading
Copyediting, the stage before typesetting, ensures that your text is consistent, clear and correct. Your document is likely to be in Word or another format that’s easily edited, so changes will be fairly simple to make. There are likely to be two stages: a first pass, where I ask questions about your style and meaning, and execute the main edit, tracking changes for you to review, and a clean-up stage, where I implement the answers I get from you and tidy everything up.
Hard-copy mark-up is a lot of fun, but these days you’re more likely to present a proofreader like me with a PDF. Either format, or any other, is fine. Trust me to tease out those final problems before you introduce your text to the world.
