Editing is a process designed to make any piece of writing more readable and free from errors. The better your writing, the easier your customers, clients, colleagues, or professors will understand what you want them to know.
Different levels of editing are appropriate to different sorts of content, based on the developmental stage of a particular piece of writing. What you need will depend on whether you are producing an advertisement, a news release, a book manuscript, an academic document, or something else. HarpWorks will help you to determine the sort of editing that best suits your project.
- Proofreading: Sometimes all that’s needed is a basic read-through, to make sure the final version is error-free. This sort of editing requires an eye for detail, as well as a thorough knowledge of grammar, spelling, and punctuation rules.
- Line editing: This next level of editing includes grammar, spelling, and punctuation, as well as more substantial editing that may include language usage, sentence and paragraph structure, and any needed adherence to Associated Press, The Chicago Manual of Style, or other stylistic rules.
- Content editing: The most thorough type of editing may include complex changes in structure, readability, and tone, in order to help shape the final development of the project.
