Each project is different, and each client is different. I’ll work with you to establish the best editorial process for you and for your client.
Editing can be broken down into three subsets: substantive editing, copyediting, and proofreading. However, because your requirements are unique, the services I provide are tailored to your needs and often will include a combination of some or all of these editorial tasks. I’m here to make your copy shine!
In-depth editorial review of content and stylistic presentation
Substantive editing focuses on content, structure, language, and style. Suggestions and revisions are designed to improve the flow, accuracy of language, and writing quality of a document for greater clarity and consistency.
Ensuring that the copy is clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent
The copyediting process removes mistakes, inconsistencies, and inaccuracies that could confuse your reader. The focus is on the details of language, including clarity, accuracy, style and terminology, grammar, spelling and punctuation, and layout.
Accuracy – Is the terminology correct? Do the style and formatting match the house style? (If there is no style guide, Bitnar Editorial will create one.) Are headers, footers, pages, and captions in the proper format and placement? Is the document consistent with the client’s branding?
The final professional review
Proofreading makes sure that your copy has ZERO grammatical errors, ZERO spelling errors, and ZERO typographical errors before the document goes to print or is posted online. This is the last professional review before the document is final.
