Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any questions about our editing and proofreading services? Here are a few common questions we’ve encountered to answer your questions. If you need more information, please contact us.

If you only need your work checked for minor issues or spelling mistakes, a proofreader would be your best option. However, if you need extensive edits and alterations to improve the overall content, an editor would meet your needs.

A professional editor can improve the overall quality of your work, raising your credibility and removing mistakes. Even a small problem or spelling error can destroy your credibility with readers and clients. There may also be other technical issues of which you aren’t aware, but that an experienced editor will spot.

While one editor can thoroughly check and edit a piece of content, we don’t recommend that you only work with a single person. Editors develop a blind spot once they’ve worked on a document for too long. As part of our editing and proofreading services, we always have a second editor or proofreader evaluate the content.

Captain Words has an extensive, globally-based team of editors and proofreaders who speak 60+ languages. We do have a minimum limit of 5,000, but there is no maximum cap on how many articles, documents, blog posts, emails, and other pieces of content we can edit.

There are several different kinds of editing and proofreading services, and choosing the wrong type of editor can affect the overall quality of your project. The first step to avoid this costly mistake is to understand that there are many different types of editing. Here are the types of editing and proofreading services we provide:

  • Article Editorial Assessment: Quick article review that allows our editor to provide you with feedback and guidance. This is a macro assessment, and while an editor will make minor changes, they don’t go into detail. These assessments typically happen at the start of a project.
  • Development Editing: Another type of macro editing, development editing is also known as substantial editing. It focuses on the structure, theme, narrative, flow, pace, ideas, perspective, tone, logic, and clarity of the piece to maintain consistency.
  • Structural Editing: Structural editing is the first step in micro editing. The editor will check the content, analyze paragraphs, readability, and make revisions.
  • Copy Editing: A copy editor will focus on the core quality of your content. They look at every sentence and their attention to detail must be on point. Our copy editors review grammar, spelling, punctuation, and the overall in-depth quality of your content.
  • Proofreading: That’s the final step in the process. Proofreaders give the content a final once-over to ensure that it’s 100% error-free.

Yes, we can. As part of our editing and proofreading services, we also verify that all the facts, statistics, and other referenced information is correct. If needed, we can also provide sources and look for updated details to add to your existing content.
