(Just some of the editorial services we can provide…)
We’ll thoroughly check your documents for grammatical mistakes and formatting issues that can sap your credibility, damage your message, and erode trust.
Grammar, and a fresh set of eyes
We don’t just check spelling and capitalisation—we’ll make sure your subjects agree with their verbs, your lists have parallel structure, and that you haven’t left any modifiers dangling! (Among other things…)
We’ll also ensure your diagrams are representative and that your figures add up.
Formatting and accessibility
We can fight Microsoft Word for you.
We’ll make sure styles are consistent, headings are nested correctly, and the table of contents and pagination is correct—and that your document is as accessible as possible.
What you take away
You’ll get a synopsis of the changes we made and why we made them.
We’ll also provide a style sheet that documents new—or frequently used—terms and to help you ensure they’re used consistently in future.
We can help you make your corporate documents—including annual reports, policy papers and factsheets—clear and accessible for your stakeholders.
We can create a single voice for your content, help you craft a message that cuts through.
We can cut out the noise, the unneeded jargon and superfluous words; we can simplify the complex, and clarify the confused.
Whether across a suite of documents, or within a single page, information architecture is crucial.
We can edit your documents so they make sense for your audience, minimising their cognitive load, and making your content easier to comprehend.
Your audience isn’t reading your corporate documents to be entertained.
Clear expression plays a big part, but rhetorical techniques and cognitive biases can also be used to encourage your readers to take the right action.
