As well as creating original content for websites and printed publications, I've also edited work created by others. Editing can be required for a number of reasons.
Perhaps you've written some material for your company website but it doesn't feel exactly right. Maybe you've used too much jargon or you've been too formal - or informal - with your words.
Or it could be that English is your second language and you want your words checked to make sure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes. I'm currently working with VAT Vakuumventile AG, for instance, to check that material they've have translated into English has been translated correctly.
In the same way that you'd take your car to a garage for a tune-up, I can fine-tune your words.
Although there are rules for spelling and grammar, there are certain things that can be written in different ways. For instance:
None of these are wrong, but if there is no consistency in your document it will be more difficult to read. I can edit your document to make sure that there is a consistent style, either using your own Style Guide or by using one of the standard Style Guides that are available.
One of the differences between online content and printed material is that once something has been printed, it cannot be changed. However, online content can be changed whenever you want.
This can be a double-edged sword. It's great that you can update your website cheaply and quickly whenever you need to do so. But that also means that there's no excuse for it not to be up-to-date, and your website visitors will punish you if it isn't. Actually, Google will punish you too because stale content doesn't appear in their search results.
I've done a lot of work for clients checking that their online content is up-to-date on a regular basis and amending it where necessary. This includes checking that facts are still correct. It also includes checking that any outbound links are still active.
