Copy Edit

What is a Copy Edit?
The purpose of a copy edit is to ensure that your text is well-written and error free. To achieve this goal, the editor will carefully read your manuscript to identify and correct any errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation. The editor will also make minor changes to the text, where necessary, to improve the flow and choice of wording. All changes will be made in the document and will be clearly indicated using Microsoft Word’s change tracking functionality.
Copy editing is an essential step in the publishing process and will allow your readers to lose themselves in your story without the distraction of textual errors and ambiguities.

Proofread

What is a Proofread?
A proofread is carried out as the final step in the editing process and ensures that the final manuscript is as error free as possible. To improve the effectiveness of the proofread, it will always be performed by a different editor to the editor who carried out the copy edit.
Example
The following example illustrates how your document will appear (with change tracking enabled) after it has been copy edited. Note that we will also return a “clean” version in which all the suggested changes have been accepted.
Jim was a small broad man, with a very short temper; he had and acne scars all over his patchy red face. There were nights when you would could here hear that poor woman scream., then you’d see her the The next morning with her face would be covered with makeup that never matched her skin tone, that make up and always made her black eyes look worse, but you’d still get a smile from the nervous, friendly woman whom James adored. James would have died for his mother, and he tried to protect her as much as he could,. hHe had a knack of distracting his father, he would by complimenting him on something or handing over his pocket money, claiming he found it or stole lemonade bottles from the neighbours yard,. tThis often gave Jim a smile and sendt him off to bed. Often James did steal;. It was just small petty theft, but then again James would have walked to the end of the earth to make his mum feel safe. He couldn’t wait to grow up and give that monster of a dad a good hiding. ‘I’ll teach him one day,’ James said with eyes full of hatred.
