What Is Copy Editing, And Why Is It Important?

Copy editing involves checking your content for spelling, grammar, or punctuation mistakes/inconsistencies and improving clarity, style, and readability.

Who Needs A Copy Editing Service?

Copy editing is often popular with specialists in niche industries. These clients might not hire writers because their area of expertise is so specific/in-depth that it would take longer to explain their content needs to a writer than it would to write the content themselves.

But these clients can hire a copy editor to ensure their content gets their messages across clearly and accurately. If you’d prefer to write your own content and have a fully qualified editor check your writing for technical inaccuracies, stylistic flaws, and SEO weaknesses, we can help.

Copy Editing Vs Proofreading: What's The Difference?

People often confuse copy editing and proofreading, but they are different services.

Copy editing should come before proofreading, which is the final stage of editing.  A proofreader will examine content one last time and highlight minor formatting and text errors.

Copy editing is a much more involved service. A copy editor will go beyond basic grammar and punctuation corrections.

They will make suggestions on how to improve style, flow, readability, language choice, and alignment with your brand.

We include proofreading at the end of our copy editing service.

What Does Copy Editing Cost?

£40 per hour.

We charge hourly rather than a flat fee for copy editing because every piece of content needs a different level of input. However, we can provide you with a quote upon seeing a 500-word sample of your content, which we’ll edit for free.
