Copyediting & Transcribing

As well as providing copy I have been asked to clean up existing copy. My work on this has encompassed websites for charities and also a series of reports published by an environmental NGO. As well as simply check for errors, my briefs have usually required me to clean and simplify copy, and make the tone more accessible without detracting from necessary factual information.

Copyediting can easily become a complete copywriting job so clear parameters have to be set as to what you want achieving; there’s no point in throwing the proverbial baby out with the bath water.


While copyediting can be engrossing, transcribing is possibly the most tedious part of any writing job – let’s face it. Fear not, however, as I am well-versed in transcribing interviews and seminars etc, and so am (almost) immune to the rigours of the task! I can provide verbatim transcripts or style the copy according to your requirements.
