Business Copy Editing Service Overview

Our Business Copy Editing service focuses on your document on two levels. Firstly, it approaches the document on a sentence-by-sentence level to ensure that they are both clear and use an appropriate tone for your intended audience. This stage often involves rewriting some of your sentences in line with the document’s overall message. Once this has been done, your editor will focus on the technical side of the writing, such as grammar and punctuation, making sure there are no typos, misused words or missing punctuation. This stage is particularly important as simple spelling mistakes have a considerably negative effect on your company’s image.

What are the benefits?

At Proof Master, our Business Copy Editing service offers clients the peace of mind of a truly professional image. By ensuring that your marketing material, reports, advertising content and pitches (amongst other documents) are flawless, you can be sure that both your team and potential customers are confident in your business’s professionalism. It may be that you do not quite have the time to ensure that the ideas covered in your document flow well or simply that writing isn’t your forte. This service is also particularly useful as a way of making larger documents with more than one author and writing style more consistent. For documents that are very inconsistent, however, it is better to select our Document Rework service.

Our Business Copy Editing service offers editing that responds to your specific piece of work. We are flexible in our approach to editing and will cater for any and all specific requirements you may have. Whether this is to more strongly emphasise topics that you would like to feature in the document or simply have the copy written with a specific tone of voice, our editing is there to guarantee that your business has the professional image it deserves.

What to Expect from Our Professional Copy Editing Services

At Proof Master, we make every effort to ensure that our Professional Copy Editing services are as easy to follow as possible. To get started, simply upload the file that you would like edited as a Microsoft Word document. Once received, we will carefully select an editor that is appropriate for what is required. With all of our editors coming from a variety of academic backgrounds and with a span of knowledge covering almost every sector, we are confident that we will be able to find a match for you, no matter how technical the document is. You can also rest assured that all information received by your editor will remain completely private. This is because, at Proof Master, we make all editors sign Non-Disclosure agreements before beginning any work for a client.

For our Business Copy Editing services, editors will make all changes easily identifiable through the Tracked Changes feature of Microsoft Word. This is so that you are able to compare any changes made with the original version of the document very easily. The Tracked Changes feature is also a useful way of identifying frequent mistakes made which can help for the future creation of copy. Once your copy has been edited, we will pass it through a final Quality Control check to ensure that it is completely error-free. This will then be sent to you via email but can also be downloaded from the “My Order” section of your Proof Master account. This downloadable file will include two versions of the document: one with Tracked Changes, and another “clean”, formatted version with comments made clearly visible. All documents are aimed to be returned within the allocated timeframe but, should there be any cause for delay, you will be notified straight away. To discuss the specifics of your Business Copy Editing needs, we recommend booking a consultation call with us on our contact page.
