Top Quality Editing Makes Good Ideas Look Great

What should I expect from an editor?
Editors are as different from other editors as writers are from other writers. However, there are specific traits you want in an editor:
  • An editor should be, above all, accurate and knowledgeable.
  • She should easily recognize the difference between American and Canadian spelling.
  • She should answer your questions respectfully.
  • She should maintain the unique flavour of your work.
How long will my job take?
The number of editing hours depends on several factors:
  • level of edit requested (light, moderate, heavy)
  • density of the document (technical terms, complexity)
  • deadline set by the client
A standard edit is generally three to six pages per hour (25 double-spaced lines or 250 words per page).
