The 3 Types of Editing

* Substantive

* Copyediting

* Proofreading


This is sometimes called Structural Editing and is a vitally important step in ensuring your manuscript is flowing, relevant to your audience, with the correct language and content. After all you would not want your audience reading a novel based in the 1920’s with a character suddenly pulling out their mobile phone to call someone.


Once your manuscript has been edited, and possibly rewritten in some areas it is time for Copyediting. In this step we will ensure that your manuscript is:

  • Consistent in formatting and layout
  • Consistent in areas such as punctuation and spelling, while also checking for grammar and sentence flow
  • Checked to ensure all referencing is correct

There is no rewriting done by us at this stage.  However, queries may be asked regarding aspects of the manuscript to ensure that your work is exactly as you want it.


Now we come to the final step which is Proofreading.     

Get It Right will check for: :

  • Typing mistakes, spelling
  • Consistency of formatting
  • All errors picked up in Copyediting stage have been  implemented (if applicable)

This is the final set of eyes before going to print.This is what changes your document to a great document!

It is also possible that we may combine some aspects of the three levels of editing, depending on your manuscript.

Copyediting and Proofreading are also vitally important for your training manuals, webpages, assignments – in fact – any item of writing.
