Proofreading and Copyediting
Proofreading: A proofread is a basic review of a document for glaring errors. I correct only typos, misspellings, and general punctuation. Issues with grammar may be noted, but not corrected.
Copyediting: A copyedit is a full cleanup of language, where I repair wording and structure on a sentence level. I correct grammar problems and I revise passive voice, wordiness, and vagueness. I apply guidelines based on The Chicago Manual of Style, APA Publication Manual, or AP Stylebook.
Technical Copyediting and ESL Copyediting: Technical editing is copyediting of technical or scientific material. I have experience with software, hardware, and operations. ESL copyediting is for writers who use English as a second language and need an editor to standardize their material.
