Frequently asked questions

What does editing involve?

The Wordy editing process involves making corrections to grammar, punctuation, spelling, use of appropriate words, internal consistency and logical structure. This process is also known as substantive editing, developmental editing or comprehensive editing.

What does rewriting involve?

Rewriting means substantially rewording your content in order to improve consistency, flow and the natural use of language. When ordering rewriting, please be careful to brief the editor on exactly what you are looking for. Based on a price per word, you can use rewriting as a tool to condense and reword your content, but not to expand it significantly from (for example) 400 words to 1,200 words.
