Trabant Editing Services offers two types of editing for customers. The services have three ways to pay by word, page, or hour. Contact for your custom package. If you buy a copy editing package and want to include a proofreading package you can get that at a discount. All changes will be in Microsoft Word with Track Changes or highlighted using Google Docs.

Copy editing
Copy editing is the level of editing most commonly called for. I’ll check and standardize grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style. It is critical for a thorough check of consistency of style choices, mechanics, and facts. Big changes are not made during the copyediting stage. I’ll consult with you in every instance where an important change is to happen.

Proofreading is a separate process. Proofing is done after editing and layout. After the page proofs have been prepared by the designer. While copy editing errors may still arise, a proofreader checks other elements. I will check all design elements for accuracy and consistency. This includes headers, page numbering, word breaks, end-of-line breaks, and page breaks.
