Take a brief look into what exactly copyediting services comprise and what is expected of an effective copyeditor.
Confused about who finalizes all the content that is written by the huge body of writers any firm has? Well, the copyeditor is the one in charge here! For those unacquainted with the nitty-gritties of copyediting, we shall unravel the scope of a copyediting services provider. Other than having an eye for error—and this is no mockery—an efficient copyeditor is expected to have mastered the five Cs. Just like a diamond is known by its Cs, a good copy comes armed with its own Cs—clarity, correctness, conciseness, completeness and consistency! And to spot if either is missing and to fill in the empty Cs, a copyeditor is the one you may trust.
This brings into focus the need for the right copyeditor to possess excellent language skills and an eye for detail. Copyediting services are rendered by millions but only few editors make their mark as the best. The differences in quality arise out of the way a copy is perceived by a particular copyediting professional.
If you simply conclude that the copyediting services provider needs to simply check and correct like your high school teacher, then you could never be more wrong. A copyediting professional needs to infuse specific life into existing copies, add spunk to the same, for it to become catchy and perfect. And this is not something that happens out of the blue. It takes effort, skill and years of experience to master.
In the digital and web media, copyediting stands out as the final touch up to content and copy. Copyediting professionals get a fat paycheck but the scope of work indeed justifies the same.
