A skilled professional editor will improve your writing

Anything in written form — article, proposal, tender, manual, technical paper, academic paper, white paper, marketing material, book manuscript, public document, annual report, website — can benefit from the skills of professional editor.

At Professional Word Services, we look at written material through the filters of grammar, spelling style and consistency, word usage, punctuation, sentence construction, logic and coherence, interest, organisation, length, format, typefaces used — everything that goes into making the written word clear, concise and correct.

Do you need an editor or a proofreader? The differences between editing and proofreading

Use checklist to help decide if you need an editor or a proofreader

We offer our skills as an editor in areas such as:

• Editing of new material.

Written material compiled in-house often comes from many different sources. We can edit the many parts into one coherent and consistent whole. It can also be difficult to edit material you have written or spent a long time compiling. Professional Word Services can act as a dispassionate third-party editor to provide objective assessment, feedback and editing.

• Assessment of existing written material.

Have the quality and clarity of your existing material assessed and, if necessary, rewritten or refreshed to suit the changing needs of your business and its clients.

• Rewriting or editing of existing or piecemeal material.

If you have had a go at writing it yourself, but know the end result does not read the way you want, then send it to us. Our editor will take the information you provide and turn it into the words you need.

• Editing for print, in-house or online publications.

Editing is an important part of the production process that takes the written word to its audience. Professional Word Services can provide extra editing capacity to cover overflows, short deadlines, staff holidays or special issues. Or if your production process lacks an editing phase, we can become your editing service.

• Word count reduction.

A skilful editor can reduce the word count without sacrificing content or clarity. If you feel a document’s length has blunted its message or effectiveness, let Professional Word Services check it for excess wordage, repetition, overwriting and superfluous material.

We are Melbourne based, but through the resources of the Internet and modern communications options we work with clients Australia wide.

Is there an editing service you need that is not covered here? Please email or call to discuss your need. If we can’t help you, then there is a good chance we will know another specialist editor who can.
