    Copy editing involves all aspects of document review, from grammar, spelling, style, flow, consistency checks, and formatting, among others. It is a process that can have many iterations, called revisions, and usually involves discussions with the author because rewriting a sentence or passages is not only a technical but also a personal issue. I am editing with eagle-eyed precision but give constructive feedback with thorough explanations for any edit. Our goal is the same: A neatly polished d... View more

Everything You Need to Know About Hiring a Freelance Copyeditor

A good content piece is concise, clear, to-the-point and grammatically correct. While authors prepare the content, there are chances of mistakes and errors. And this is where a copyeditor steps in. A copyeditor checks the content for tone, facts, grammar, sentence structure and consistency. Hire freelance copy editor who also makes sure that the content is in line with the intent and the target audience. A freelance copy editor for hire is beneficial when you need a detailed edition of the text, explicit language and want to create a better reading experience for your readers. When you hire a freelance copy editor, he/she can help you in producing an error-free copy; they review your manuscript for errors and also ensure that the copy text retains its style and tone.

What Do Freelance Copy Editors Do?

Freelance copy editors are the ones who make sure that the written text is concise, coherent and both grammatically and factually correct, and are responsible for an initial review. They make sure that the content is easy to read, and it conveys ideas logical and sequentially. Copyeditors work diligently even under a tremendous time constraint.

Freelance Copy Editor for hire is responsible for reviewing each piece of writing to ensure that it is accurate. They sometimes change the length of the text to make it suitable for styling and formatting for the publisher. They insert heading, subheading, footnotes and images to make the copy more engaging. When the copy editing process is capped off, editors send the copies for proofreading.

Qualification of Freelance Copy Editors

Before you hire a Freelance Copy Editor on Guru, the best place to hire a professional, you must look for the following requirements: -

  • To become a Copy Editor, one should hold a journalism degree or any related course. Some previous experience as a Copywriter is highly desirable.

  • Copy Editors should have command over their language and should be proficient in grammar. Grammar refers to the accuracy of the written words, while usage implies common ways of writing or speaking by native speakers.

  • Copy Editors should be proficient enough to spot the mistakes.

  • They should have a unique style of writing and screening the article. Many organizations have a house-style or way of writing certain words or phrases in each post.

Professional Copy Editor Offers Best Copy Editing Freelancing Services

Here are a few services that a good freelance copy editor for hire offers:

  • Proofreading:

Proofreading is the primary form of copy editing.  The principal function of a proof-reader is to read the text carefully to ensure that no orthography, grammar or continuity errors are present in it. The copyeditor also formats the content, making it easy to read and understand.

  • Line Editing:

One step up from proofreading is line editing.  While editing your lines, copyeditors review your document in greater detail and then go line by line through the manuscript. For successful editing, a proof-reader reads a text several times and carefully checks that the document is reliable. For line editing, line editors use a pervasive mark-up system and many line editors use a variety of codes or revision symbols to indicate the necessary changes to the text.

  • Substantive Editing:

Substantive editing is even more comprehensive than line editing.  Substantial editing involves updating, rewriting, and paraphrasing portions of the text. The paper is regarded as a holistic piece, and made descriptive and precise when needed.

Benefits of Hiring a Freelance Copy Editor

A freelance copyeditor refines the content piece and makes it readable. Here are different benefits you can avail when you hire a freelance copy editor on Guru, one of the leading online freelance websites: - 

  • The foremost benefit of hiring a freelance copy editor is that you can call them or ask for their help whenever you feel like. You are not bound to have a single copy editor for all your projects.
