Copy editing – A Second Pair of Eyes

Authors can easily overlook basic errors and inconsistencies in the documents they produce. But our professional editors will ensure that sentences will convey their proposed meanings, and that text is presented in a manner that is relevant for the intended market.

Apollo Communication understands the importance of accuracy in the final preparation of error-free documents. The types of copy editing are as follows:

Light edit — This is checking for spelling, grammar, punctuation errors, and alphabetical order (especially in relation to the references in a document). It also includes the amendment of wrong fonts and inconsistent capitalisation.

Medium edit — This includes the light edit and checking for parallel structure in the text. It also advises the correct use of the active voice.

Heavy edit — The heavy edit (ideal for dissertations) includes a light and medium edit and substantial amounts of copy editing. It also points out structural flaws in a document (see Developmental editing).

Developmental editing involves a substantial amount of re-writing and re-organisation of a document in order to improve its clarity. At the same time, a developmental edit addresses structural problems in a text, but does not focus much on grammar, spelling and punctuation issues.
