Editing & Proofreading

You have several different subject matter experts providing content. Have they found a uniform voice?

You are presenting highly technical content. Is it still accessible to your readers?

You have multiple written deliverables. Are they all consistent with your company’s editorial standards?

Your writing needs to convey professionalism to impress the marketplace. Have you eliminated errors that could cost you your credibility?

The Writers For Hire will improve the clarity, flow, and organization of your writing to make sure you accurately represent your company. We ensure a common voice and style throughout your communications – whether it’s a single piece of written collateral or your entire line of corporate communications – to maintain consistency in your messaging.

We take the time to get to know our clients. Knowing what’s important to you – and the industry you serve – ensures that we convey your key attributes and goals in every one of your written works.

Free Style Guide Creation

For our long-term clients with multiple projects, we automatically institute a client-specific style guide to maintain editorial consistency across every piece. This style guide is actively shared with you, so you can share with the rest of your in-house team, as well as any other writing teams you may leverage.

Of course, if you already have your own style and branding guidelines buttoned up, we will strictly abide by your current guidelines.

A Valuable Second Set of Eyes

Everyone – yes, even a professional author – benefits from having an independent third party review your writing. The best thing you can do to verify clarity is to ask someone previously uninvolved to see if it makes sense.

Editing vs. Proofreading: What’s the Difference?

The terms “editing” and “proofreading” are often used interchangeably. But, really, they serve very distinct purposes and occur at different times in the writing process.

Editing and proofreading business or technical content requires the ability to review complex documents about highly specialized topics. We use our expertise to check for English language errors and content issues, including verifying (or questioning) that your writing provides an appropriate level of complexity for your target reader.

The language aspect covers traditional copyediting and production editing concerns; the content aspect involves substantive editing to address the accuracy and completeness of the technical information and to ensure that it is intelligible to the intended audience.

Editing

  • Reviewing your copy to improve the flow and overall quality of your writing.
  • Correcting errors or inconsistencies.
  • Revising sentences and paragraphs for flow.
  • Making the copy cleaner and clearer.
  • Guaranteeing that your copy follows your style guide.

Proofreading

  • Reading your final draft (after it has been edited and approved) to remove any last errors.
  • Examining the layout and/or formatting.
  • Double-checking any dates, URLs, page numbers, or pertinent details.

We have the experience you need.

Other writing firms have good teams – but we have a great team. Our highly credentialed and experienced writers are degreed, full-time professionals, several of whom hold Ph.D.’s and master’s degrees in their fields. They bring a variety of backgrounds and, perhaps more importantly, understand how the business world works.

We get to know you

Developing and maintaining long-term client relationships is important to us. We take the time to get to know your company so we can develop messaging that both fits your company personality and presents real value to your end customer.

We are part of your team.

We believe in treating your project as our own. We’re not just writing your copy; we’re helping you deliver on your promise – to your boss, to yourself, to your stakeholders. That means we become proactive members of your company and seamless extensions of your internal team. Sure, we’ll take directions when you know exactly what you want. But we’ll also make suggestions when you need guidance to make every project a success.

We are efficient.

Time is valuable. The Writers For Hire won’t waste yours. We recognize that you don’t have enough hours in the day to train writers and editorial project managers – on the other hand, you can’t afford to make mistakes on such an important element of your business operations. We use a proprietary process to quickly synch with your team, and award-winning software to efficiently manage campaigns with hundreds of deliverables.

We’ve got your back.

Say your lead writer is out of the office, and you need a quick turnaround on a new deliverable. You have back-up who knows the particulars of your account and can move your projects ahead seamlessly. So go ahead and call us at any given time – we’ll make it happen for you.

We are exceptionally customer-focused.

Our dedication to customer service is obvious: You’ll never worry about being able to reach us. You’ll have a dedicated team assigned to you, and you can rest assured that your team will be highly responsive.

But don’t just take our word for it. Our client list speaks for itself.

We assist Fortune 100s, government entities, and large corporations – including Hilton, Forbes, Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, Sara Lee, Rig-Zone, St. Arnold Brewing Company, Caterpillar, and Mitsubishi Forklift Truck, to mention just a few.
