Writing and Editing Services
At the beginning of a project or document: We’ll provide feedback on usability, design, formatting. and the overall structure of the content. We can draft content from your raw material if you haven’t yet started, take engineering notes and write a procedural guide, or perform a substantive (developmental) edit to draft content, checking for a number of things such as technical accuracy, consistency across your content, adherence to house style, and so on. We’ll guide you through the editorial review process and advise you on changes we suggested or required, and work hard to ensure your voice is maintained.
When content is nearly completed: You’ve taken your content through multiple internal reviews with stakeholders, such as legal and marketing, and it’s nearly final. Hire us to perform a solid, deep review of the content to ensure that it is grammatically correct, free of unnecessary jargon and clichés, and concise enough that your message gets to the reader clearly. We’ll check facts and verify references, make sure tables and figures are properly placed and annotated.
At the end of the project: All earlier edits have been approved and incorporated. All stakeholders have signed off and made any last minute changes. We’ll proofread the content to make sure that no embarrassing mistakes exist (like its versus it’s, insure versus ensure, and so on) that only a skilled editorial eye would catch.
