Editing & Proofing



A writer may be very skilled at getting ideas and thoughts down on paper, but writing and editing are two very different skills. A writer may know what he or she wants to say — an editor knows the best way to say it. A professional editor keeps a writer’s intention intact and ensures that the writing communicates to readers concisely, with ordered thought and structure, free of confusion and grammatical errors and typos that detract from the message. An editor is a gatekeeper standing between the writer and the publisher.

 

The need for accuracy with all written material is paramount in business. Incorrect grammar and punctuation can actually change the meaning of documents without the author being aware. Company reputations can be damaged by websites, articles, journals, manuscripts, brochures, documents and manuals that contain needless grammar and spelling mistakes.

 

Editing and proofing may consist of some of the following:

 

 

  • Substantive Editing

 

In substantive editing, the editor asks the question “Does the work make sense?” A substantive edit looks at structure, sequence, completeness and clarity of ideas.

 

 

  • Copy-editing

 

In copy-editing, the editor performs a high-level scan of the mechanics of writing. While copy-editing, the editor looks at language use, voice, grammar, and punctuation.

 

 

  • Proof-reading Services

 

In proof-reading, the editor does a final check of the writing before it is published. Proofreading is a misunderstood craft. While editing does involve some proofreading, proofing is usually the final step before publishing. A proof is a test run of the writing and a final chance to find and fix errors. Proof-readers find the errors that have remained in the document to this point.

 

With our huge bank of available editing and proofing employees, RemoteResources can certainly assist you in building or expanding your current team of editors and proof-readers.  You will see substantial cost savings that offshoring can deliver – often with savings in the region of 70%.

 

Should you have urgent documents to be completed, even time zone differences will help. Send off documents for editing as you leave for home and they often can be edited and back on your desk before you arrive next morning.

RemoteResources has engagement models to suit all business sizes. To find out the one that will best suit your business, please click on the tabs below.

 

Remote Staffing

The Remote Staffing engagement model is a great option to enjoy Offshore Staffing for the small to medium employers – the likes of Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Small & Medium Enterprises (SME’s).They may have a smaller appetite for the higher set-up costs associated with other engagement models. As Remote Staffing has little or no set-up costs, it is a popular engagement model. These styles of businesses may start with only one staff member – and then grow to a bigger team as they find their business increases, especially after experiencing the benefits that Offshore Staffing provides.

 

 

 

 

 

Hybrid Captive

Businesses that require perhaps a higher number of staff, increased operational control, or have a need for dedicated / separate office space, yet want to retain the characteristics of Offshore Staff, then a Hybrid Captive may suit. It is designed with all the benefits that Staff Leasing and Offshoring provide. The business will enjoy its’ own fully operational and customised office, whilst also incorporating the benefits of Remote Staffing, such as Offshore Staff, operations management and all other support services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Build – Operate – Transfer

If a business need is to fully own and control their own offshore operation, then a Build – Operate – Transfer engagement offers a logical and cost effective option. This model has the ultimate result of a business owning their own offshore entity, but without the set-up pressures, expenses and risks that would normally face a firm. There are three distinct phases to this engagement model. The first two are driven by the offshore provider setting up an offshore team for the client company, not unlike a Hybrid Captive.  However at an agreed time, all ownership aspects of the operation are fully transferred over to the client, which will then own and operate their offshore office.
