Proofreading involves correcting spelling, punctuation and grammar before a manuscript is published.
Line editing involves line-level improvement of readability, clarity, concision, consistency and flow, as well as ensuring that phrasing is consistent with native British or US English.
Often, book manuscripts benefit from more involved intervention from an editor in order to improve their content. This may involve flagging inconsistencies or factchecking issues, as well as suggesting ways to enrich the book with detail to increase comprehensiveness, robustness and reader engagement.
Sometimes, a draft manuscript may require major reordering and separation of content in order to present optimally with a logical and engaging flow. This is where structural editing comes in.
