Editing & Curating of Complex Copy

Sample 1: Light editing and proofreading
Sample 2: Heavy line editing

Editing

Part of my role as a content designer is extensive editing of articles submitted by my clients. Editing can be as simple as proofreading for spelling errors and extend to heavier copyediting or even deep-dive line editing that includes fine-tuning the tone and style of the writer while keeping his/her voice.

 

Click on sample 1 for an edited and unedited version of an article that required simple copyediting/proofreading.

 

Click on sample 2 to see an example of heavy line editing. A German writer wrote this blog post in English, which required extensive editing to adapt it to native English speakers.

Curating

Some of my clients write long articles or research papers on highly complex and specific topics that need to be curated and adapted to a larger audience. This requires working through extensive source materials, usually tech- or medical-related, and extensive research. I rewrite the material concisely and clearly to reach a wider audience that might not know the topic.

Here are two examples. First is a curated medical article about asthma and chiropractic care; underneath is a link to the source material, a medical research study.

The second is another curated medical article about crying babies and chiropractic care; beneath that is a link to the source material, a medical research paper.
