Everyone defines the types or levels of editing a little differently.
That's because they can overlap quite a bit.
In fact, most of our editing jobs don't fit neatly into one type.
And that can be super confusing if you're not used to working with editors.
The descriptions below are our take on four main types of editing: developmental, substantive, copy editing, and proofreading. But rest assured, we work with our clients to assess their needs and create editing plans that lead to success. Just let us know if you have any questions.
