Editing

Editing is the process of selecting and preparing written, visual, audible, and film media used to convey information. The editing process can involve correction, condensation, organization, and many other modifications performed with an intention of producing a correct, consistent, accurate and complete work.

Types of Editing

Substantive (developmental) Editing

The most intensive form of editing is substantive editing. The document is evaluated as a whole and problems of structure, organization, coherence, and logical consistency are corrected. Sentences may be removed or added. Paragraphs may be rewritten, condensed, or expanded. Blocks of text may be moved from one section to another. Substantive editing includes one revision at no additional charge. Turnaround time must be negotiated.

Copy Editing

The editor corrects problems of grammar, style, repetition, word usage, and jargon. Copy editing includes one revision at no additional charge. Turnaround time for copy editing typically is three business days.

When you hire a professional copywriter, you aren’t just getting someone who can pick amazing pieces, and write quality content.

It all depends on the project. Some jobs are quick, some take a while. Without knowing a bit about what you require, it’s impossible for me to say. What I CAN say, though, is if you want copy written for $5 per page, or a whole site designed and built for $200, you’re outta luck. We cost a lot more than that.

Again, it all depends on the specifics of the job, how much information you can supply, and how long you take to review the work. A single page of copy, say 400 words, can be turned around in 1-2 days if you’re able to supply all the information I need, and you review fairly promptly.

Yes! I work for clients around the world, including USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Tanzania, South Africa and Botswana.
