How editing and proofreading can help your writing

Editing

Editing will help define the clarity of voice and tone within your copy.

It helps to reshape and restructure words, sentences and paragraphs so that your text flows like you intended it to. 

Sometimes, heavy duty editing may be required.

This can range from moving large chunks of text within your work, through to rewriting entire sections of copy to ensure consistency with concepts and messaging.

Sometimes all that is needed is a quick change of language, grammar or sentence structure and you’re good to go.

Proofreading

This is the final hurdle before your brand new copy finds its way into the world.

Your messages and structure are sorted, but a few tiny pieces here and there need a little clean up.

This usually covers basic checking of spelling, punctuation and grammar. Some formatting changes may also pop up (font style or sizing etc.), but that’s pretty much it.

This final step adds a professional touch that will make sure your copy leaves a positive first impression.

Get a fresh perspective on your copy

Why use a professional?

 

Being subjective with your own work can be quite the struggle. You know what you wanted to say. You’ve said it. It all makes sense, right?

Not always.

Just because you understand what you’re trying to say, doesn’t mean your audience will. You’re biased towards your work, and that’s cool — we all are.

Having a fresh set of eyes to look for inconsistencies will help readability and strengthen your tone of voice.

In fact, it’s the quickest and easiest way to improve the clarity of your message. And who doesn’t want that?
