Stages

All stages to evoke the best possible product, starting with the idea, to shaping content, and through the review cycle. We know that our job is to improve the document while maintaining accurate content and effective relationships with the experts whose work we edit.

  • Pre-writing: Create strategy, generate ideas, develop outline, and resolve organizational issues
  • Writing: Evoke accessible, accurate content—may involve techniques such as taping content and talking through ideas
  • Revision: Edit content, create unified voice, and quality check through copyediting and proofreading
  • Screen design/format for electronic products: Layout, color, interaction, branching, graphics, simulations, questions/answers
