Editing

It is objective reality that there are subject matters that take longer to explain to a technical communicator than to write them up and have an editor comb and iron whatever came out of the subject matter expert's mind.

It is almost never about the author being a native speaker of the language but rather about the message composing skills that are acquired in education and practical experience just like any other skills.

Business documents’ shape and language should echo the quality of your products and services. If you have a draft of a project composed, our technical editors can help you rewrite, structure, revise, and test the document. A well-built presentation of the ideas and their implementation can make the difference between a product that sells and one that doesn’t.

Technical editing is about shaping the written material into a form that is clear, consistent, and easy to follow. The same idea can be delivered in dozens of ways depending on the target audience and event relevance.

Technical editors are trained to ensure that the document is not only grammatically correct and accessible to its readers—their job is to dive to the bottom of your mind and tell the reader what you mean. Ideally, every document should go through an editing cycle. It is as important for business value of the message as it is for such delicate issues as clearance submissions or localized commercials.

Even when your original text is nearly perfect, a fresh pair of content-neutral eyes makes that difference the author will never see but will always appreciate. Moreover, materials written by several authors and compiled together should undergo a technical editing cycle that will tune them to sound as one voice.
