Sharing is caring!
It is sad that very often academic and business documents simply don’t hit the mark due to errors or lack of proper format and presentation. A faulty write-up fails to make vital messages clear, prompt action or even inspire confidence in the writer’s professionalism. Hence, an editing service!
English editing services are at their peak for several reasons. People look forward for professional help to edit their academic and business documents. Writers, researchers and scholars who are speakers of English as their second language look out for professional editors. You may be an aspiring editor who is delegated to edit a document by a company employee or a research scholar.In such case, the most crucial question that arises is – how do you do it? How can you become a pro in editing services?
Here are some tips, but before starting, increase the font to two times larger before editing!
Create a folder on your desktop, label it neatly and copy the (word file) document to be edited in this folder.
List everything that needs to be checked and edited including page numbers, spacing, headings, and so on.
Go through the text to get a good idea of its structure and content.
Review similar items together – all tables and captions together, all headings and subheadings together.
Ensure that the edited version is free of unnecessary bulk and the important parts are highlighted.
Don’t lose sight of the big picture while searching for minute details. Go slow, one at a time.
Pay special attention to the opening pages and conclusion.
Self-explanatory and quite obvious!!
Hearing the write-up often makes it easier than reading it.
Minimize the use of jargon, empty clichés and buzzwords. Instead, aim for plain English.
You can run a spelling checker as a backup, but you can’t trust it to catch everything like homophonic words or typos that are legitimate words.
A tired brain can never edit effectively. So take short and regular breaks – get some fresh air or take a walk – whatever works for you.
