  • Transitions

Expert proofreaders to hire

Our proofreaders and editors have years of industry experience and understand how a book has to be contextually corrected rather than “just” corrected.

Developmental
editing

Developmental editing entails a manuscript review by one of our editing experts who assess if the content will need any value addition apart from what goes into line editing. Value addition can be in the form of content arrangement, content addition, content subtraction, and content modification.

Who needs this? Mostly, developmental editing is needed for budding authors who have partly done scripts. A manuscript is evaluated on the following basis:

  • Structure and Organization
  • Exposition
  • Pacing and flow
  • Characterization
  • Review of writing technique
  • Voice
  • Readership Profile
  • Everything that Line editing entails

An evaluation report by an editing expert is sent along with a batch of edits to show what we are trying to achieve based on the manuscript evaluation. Once approved, the editing expert moves in the same direction.

Line editing

Line editing is usually required for completed manuscripts that just need to have the content polished to perfection. They entail the following:

  • Grammar
  • Punctuations
  • Sentence length
  • Contextual Spellings
  • Sentence structures
  • Transitions
  • Eliminate cliché
  • Eliminate contractions
  • Text formatting (make sure that the text has a proper introduction, main body, and a conclusion. This holds true for all stories and all chapters)
  • Eliminate weak writing (adjectives that increase wordiness, words that add fluff, dangling modifiers)
  • Complete the dangling modifiers, add the subject/ object/ verb whatever is lacking
  • Insert traits about the characters in case of fiction, or facts about the topics for non-fiction

The first set of dummy edits are sent to the customers in case of line edits to touch base and understand what the client is looking forward to. All changes are shown to the customers via tracks in the document, where they can also update what they would like to update in the document.

Mechanical Editing & Copy Editing

Mechanical editing is specifically tailoring a script for a publishing platform or a layout. Sometimes, clients want to submit scripts independently to a publisher or need to get them in a specific style, for example, APA or MLA. In such a case, the entire typeset is altered in line with the same. Copy-editing is oftentimes offered complimentary with Mechanical editing. The usual changes apart from alteration of the format and typesetting are as follow:

  • Spell errors
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Spacing
  • Capitalization

Translation and Bilingual Proofreading

Many a time, the authors get their books translated into a specific language and may find the vocabulary not in line with how locals of a specific region or their targeted regions speak, the ghost editing expert tailors the content in line with how it would read if the author was a local. Even the language that is used by a Dallas local would differ from someone who lives in New York City. Have our ghost editing experts evaluate the scripts for you, eliminate weak texts and replace them with something that instills life into your text. Our experts can identify and correct grammatical conventions from the source language being misapplied to the target language. A U.S. Ghostwriting can make your text pixel perfect.

Such a script may also be analyzed based on the customer’s preference as per the following parameters:

  • Beta Reader testing
  • Cultural accuracy reading
