What is copy-editing?
Copy-editing is Wordy’s basic product and a more detailed process than proofreading. Our editors check for correct grammar, reliable punctuation and correct spelling, but also suggest alternative words and check the internal consistency and logical structure of the text. Good copy-editing retains the original message of the text and leaves the author’s voice intact. In short, Wordy’s copy-editing service prepares the text for the final stage of production by making it as clear and consistent as possible.
What is a copy editor?
A copy editor is a language professional with a deep understanding of the written language, a well-rounded professional background and a relevant education. A copy editor's job is not to alter the meaning of the text but optimise the text to convey its message as accurately as possible.
A copy editor checks the text for:
- Correct grammar, spelling and punctuation
- Appropriate words, vocabulary and technical terms
- Internal consistency of meaning and expression
- Internal consistency of wording
- Logical structure
- Conformity to house style and typographical conventions
- Correct formatting of references, citations and footnotes
- Adherence to a design specification.
Why do you need professional copy-editing?
Every writer needs copy-editing. Consistent, well-written content will always set any company and invidual apart, and editing copy to the highest standard is not something that just anyone can do. A professional copy-editor will do a better job making the text more readable using less time. That’s why using Wordy will not only safe you from costly errors and rewrites, but also reduce cycle times and ensure all your content is consistent and up to par. If you're unsure about the use of the subjunctive, or how to structure your subordinate clauses, or even the difference between 'disinterested' and 'uninterested', don't worry! Simply send your text through Wordy’s one-click ordering system and be done with it.
