I conform to Editors Canada's Professional Editorial Standards. Accordingly, your project may require different types of editing:
- Structural editing: deleting, adding, clarifying, or reorganizing material into an appropriate structure and sequence; identifying gaps in the document and researching information; writing original material or transitional text; using appropriate language for the intended audience and medium.
- Stylistic editing: clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, and polishing language; writing or editing headings, titles, captions, or credit lines to ensure consistency.
- Copy editing: correcting errors in spelling, usage, grammar, punctuation, and style (e.g., capitalization, abbreviations); correcting inconsistencies in facts; editing headings, tables, lists, captions, and figures.
- Proofreading: checking proofs of formatted, edited material for errors in copy (e.g., spelling mistakes); ensuring that copy conforms to an editorial style sheet; checking line breaks, page breaks, margins, type size and style.
