What our line editors offer

Line editing is the bridge between a draft and a finished manuscript. It's the fine-tooth comb running through your words, removing redundancies, tightening prose, and ensuring consistency in tone and style.

At ServiceScape, we don't just proofread; we dive deep into each line and phrase, examining and refining to ensure every word counts. Our professional line editors look beyond grammar and punctuation, focusing on the finer details of your work, like sentence construction, transitions, word choice, and so much more. Our line editors will ensure that your writing shines by providing:

  • Sentence-level editing to meticulously review each sentence, ensuring clarity, coherence, and engagement.
  • Transition corrections to make sure your ideas flow smoothly from one to another throughout your text.
  • Word choice corrections to check for precision in language, ensuring the right word is used for the right context.
  • Tone and style consistency evaluation to ensure your tone and style remain consistent throughout your text, providing your writing with a uniform feel.
  • Removal of redundancies to eliminate repetitive points and phrases to streamline your text and improve readability.
  • Grammar and syntax corrections to identify grammatical errors and awkward phrasing that can detract from your work's overall quality.
  • Pacing review to evaluate the rhythm and pacing of your writing, making sure the narrative moves at a suitable tempo.
  • Readability improvement to make sure your work is easy to read and engaging to your target audience.
  • Dialogue enhancement to make dialogue sound natural, consistent, and engaging, adding to your characters' depth.
  • Passive voice examination to identify areas where active voice could make your sentences more dynamic and engaging.
  • Jargon evaluation to ensure any specialized language or jargon is necessary, properly used, and defined or explained for your readers.
  • Fact-checking to catch factual inconsistencies or errors in your manuscript. While this is not the main focus, our line editors may be able to identify some of these issues.
  • POV consistency to make sure the point of view remains consistent or changes are clearly and effectively made. This would apply if your manuscript is a work of fiction.
  • Feedback and suggestions to improve your manuscript’s overall quality. Our line editors will provide detailed feedback and suggestions for each and every project.

By the time our line editors are finished, every aspect of your writing will be perfected. ServiceScape line editors add the finishing touch to make your writing the very best it can be.
