Our Getting to the point® editing services will transform your workplace writing into clear, engaging and persuasive texts. We can:
- edit whole documents in depth
- develop templates to save time for your writers and readers
- evaluate your writing against plain English benchmarks.
Expert, experienced editors
We edit texts such as:
- legal contracts, deeds and agreements
- technical, scientific, financial and audit reports
- policies, procedures and guidelines.
Unlike traditional copyeditors, our specialist editors use a comprehensive approach that looks at structure, design and expression. We edit in Microsoft Word.
Simple, attractive templates
Templates we work on include:
- briefing notes and board papers
- fact sheets
- client and customer letters.
We also offer companion template seminars to help you launch the templates.
Objective writing evaluations
We are the only company in Australia with an objective evaluation system to assess documents against plain English best practice.
We can evaluate anything – one report, dozens of briefs, or a full website. We offer 3 levels of service to suit your needs:
- our Verbumetric® writing evaluation assesses the writing standard across your whole organisation
- an Editorial Review gives detailed, qualitative analysis of a document
- a Snapshot Assessment measures how effective a single piece of content is.
Plain English transformations
The strategy will make large structures like the raised train line less obvious.
The strategy will ameliorate the visual intrusion of large infrastructure elements such as the elevated railway structure.
Our editing services are not affected by COVID-19.
Please see our Service update fact sheet for more on how we are supporting our clients with their service needs in the current crisis.
