Our editing works include

  • Proofreading

    Correction of typographical errors, spelling errors, punctuation errors, malapropisms, and formatting inconsistencies.

  • Copy Editing

    Editing for grammar, word usage, word breaks, concord, capitalization, parallelism and mechanics of style; checking for consistency of voice and mechanics, internal consistency of facts, and for overall structure and flow of the prose and writing style.

  • Stylistic Editing

    Clarifying meaning, eliminating needless jargons and clichés, polishing language, and other mechanical line-by-line editing. Breaking of long sentences and analyzing of sentences for clarity and structure. Reworking of confusing writing.

  • Standardizing

    To British or American English.

  • Formatting Consistency

    Consistency in placement and formatting of body text, headings and tables.

  • Revising or Rewriting

    We occasionally find that a job is such that it is far below publishing quality. When this happens we inform the writer and tell them what needs to be done. That may involve doing research and re-writing the material.

  • Developmental Editing

    We work with an author at every stage of the writing process. From start of the book to finish we are in touch with the author offering suggestions, research, writing, and re-writes of content, layout and presentation.

  • Indexing and Bibliography

    We produce back-of-the-book indexes as well as linked and active indexes for your eBooks or other electronic publications. We recognize that a good index increases usability and potential sales of a given text. As professionals, we are able to recognize key concepts in a given text, identify connections between terms and between various parts of the text, and make distinctions between substantive discussions and passing mentions of a term.

    We look at your material from the reader’s perspective and synthesize information to write appropriate entries and cross references that ensure your readers can quickly find the information they are seeking.

  • Magazine Production

    We produce magazines, brochures and end of year journals for churches and associations. We also provide formatting, layout and general consultancy services for all kinds of magazines and journals. You hand in your articles and we do the rest. In the alternative, you simply tell us what you have in mind and we write content and hand you your magazine before the deadline following agreed terms and timelines.

  • Other services include

    Website content writing, Business or proposal writing, Book cover design, Manuscript synopsis, Transcribing, Reading, evaluation and a lot more…
