Keeping your document's purpose and intended audience in mind, we'll copy edit your publication to make sure it flows smoothly and makes sense. We'll also check and correct the following:

  • spelling
  • punctuation
  • capitalisation
  • grammar
  • redundancy
  • phrasing
  • excessive passive voice
  • jargon
  • colloquialisms and clich├ęs
  • continuity
  • style
  • tense
  • title pages and chapter titles
  • references and citations

The most common formats we work with are:

  • Microsoft Word - we'll make corrections using the 'Comments' and 'Track Changes' functions, allowing you to see every change and choose to accept or reject each correction.
  • PDF - we'll indicate changes using Adobe Acrobat's 'Comment & Markup' features.
  • Websites - we can make corrections either in Microsoft Word, on PDF or directly through your content management system
  • Google docs - we can also edit and collaborate with you through Google docs

For other formats, just ask!
