PART I: Basic principles

This part will focus on the basic principles and questions concerning copy-editing and will include discussion of the following points:

  • What is copy editing and how is it different from other types of language review?
  • When should you consider editing your text? Is it fit for the purpose?
  • Preliminary questions: What is the text type? Who is your target audience? What channel(s) are you using?
  • Copy-edit checklist: What are some of the most important editing techniques you can use to add value to your communications?

PART II: Putting it into practice

This part will focus on more practical applications of the points discussed in Part I.

  • The trainer will provide some standard examples to illustrate copy-editing in practice.
  • Participants are encouraged to provide their own material for discussion. This can be submitted in advance. You will also get feedback with suggested improvements.

At the end of the session, you will have a clearer understanding of what copy-editing is, when you should consider editing, and what editing techniques you can use.
