Freelance copy editor on the editing team at RayWenderlich.com, one of the internet’s premiere websites for programming tutorials.
In this role, I edit highly technical documents to be sure that they meet exacting house standards, use proper English and grammar, and read easily even for people who are new to the subject matter.
While proofreading is an important part of this role, I do much more as well. I improve the structure of the article so that one thought flows smoothly to the next, I make sure that difficult concepts are explained clearly and thoroughly, and I do rewrites when necessary to improve readability. I also provide detailed feedback to encourage the writers and help them improve over time.
These copy edits require:
- A meticulous eye for detail.
- Expertise in correct English spelling and punctuation.
- Deep understanding of AP and house styles.
- My flair for untangling convoluted sentences and making complex topics accessible for readers.
