As we’ve all experienced, it is difficult to catch your own mistakes. Line Editing provides that outside perspective to catch overlooked errors and lurking typos to give your work a professionally finished quality.
Your manuscript will be thoroughly reviewed to catch and correct any errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization and syntax. Light recommendations on word choice and improving overall readability will also be provided. Your copy editor will track every change and recommendation using Microsoft® Word so that you have the final say over what stays and what goes.
