Copy/line edit

What do we mean by copy/line edit and proofread? It can be confusing so to help you decide exactly what you’d like us to help you with, here are our definitions:

Here we go over your work checking it for the following:

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Consistency (American or British English)
  • Sentence construction (including elimination of unnecessary words) – syntax, tense, overuse of clichés, adverbs, purple prose)
  • Typos
  • Style sheet used correctly, if appropriate
  • Style guide, where appropriate, used correctly


This is the last step to be undertaken and checks for typos in spelling, punctuation, grammar and spacing only.
