Copy editing

Copy editing is a favourite pastime of mine. Monitoring for inconsistencies, repetition, style incongruities, and readability is both deeply relaxing and a fun puzzle to solve.

Below is an example of some copy editing I did for a University of Calgary acquaintance. M is responsible for writing the policies and procedures required at her engineering firm. I made some suggested changes to encourage a firmer tone and identified inconsistencies. As always, my favourite part of any copy editing project is the creation of a unique style sheet.

This freelance work is an example of the copy editing approach I take in all of my technical writing and documentation work.
