Copyediting

Why does one need copyediting?

Copyediting is the art of editing one’s work so as to remove spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting errors and at the same time improve overall sentence structure, leaving the core content of the work untouched. This kind of editing is vital for any document, be that a novel or a job resume.

Engrossed in the creation of their content, it is nearly impossible for authors to catch every mistake in their work, or detect everything that could be improved. Here is where Intellzi steps in and offer a second pair of eyes to improve your invaluable copy.

Our copy editors will critically read the text and check all elements word by word to fix errors. With years of experience and sharply honed copyediting skills we are sure that our copy editors will meet your expectations.

Substantive Editing

Intellzi’s approach to the task of substantive editing consists of a methodical evaluation and critical analysis of the whole manuscript. Our substantive editors help the author polish the manuscript that earned them the publishing contract.

Essentially, our substantive editors help the author to tighten a manuscript’s scope, thus helping the author focus on what is apt and what is not by either revising or recommending revisions of, or deleting or advising removal of, passages or even the entire chapters, if necessary. Our substantive editors recommend reordering of paragraphs or chapters in nonfictional work, or in the case of fictional work adding of scenes or dropping of subplots, and raise pertinent questions and makes critical comments that help clarify the author’s objective or express the author’s message. This is because substantive editing is basically analysis-based, whether at the word, sentence, paragraph, or the document level. Therefore, decisions require judgment, not just the application of rules. Hence, it is imperative that it should be negotiable with the author. Thus, INTELLIZI’s substantive editors are virtually the author’s collaborator as well as the greatest ally. This is primarily because of the fact that our substantive editors, working in tandem with the author, always ensures that fictional works support character motivation and nonfictional works conveys authority.

As Intellzi’s expert substantive editors specialize in examining the overall structure and help authors fill in blanks and avoid repetitions and ensure whether the manuscript is well organized, appropriate in tone, style, and format, clear and articulate, and consistent in its approach, your manuscript is eventually rendered as aptly suitable for your readerships. This approach of ours is applicable not only for all nonfiction books, journal or magazine articles, business proposals, marketing materials, white papers, software manuals but also for other documents.

Editorial proofreading

Our editorial proofreaders are a skilled set of people, who proofread for sense the typeset pages, eliminating all errors before the book goes to print. They can handle a wide range of publishers and have a good eye for detail.

Indexing

Our indexers use specialized software that helps them automate the more mechanical aspects of indexing such as sorting index entries, enabling them to focus on the intellectual task of analyzing the text. Our indexes will greatly add value to your books and subsequently increase sales. We provide various types of services in indexing as listed hereunder.

An index is an alphabetical arrangement of words and phrases, designed to help readers find information accurately and efficiently. Unlike the table of contents (which gives the reader a general overview of the book), the index provides an instant link to specific terms, concepts, and elements.
