Copy Editing

Copy editing is the process of making sure that the documents and publications you work on are clear and accurate that no errors of fact, grammar, punctuation, or style get in the way of the intended message. During copy editing, the editor who does the work must ensure that the copy is clear, correct, concise, comprehensible and consistent. He also has to consider publisher's house style.

Copy editing seeks to correct the spelling errors and incorrect use of definite and indefinite articles among other errors.

Copy editing in the newspaper or publication business is known as the last check before the work goes to printing. Copy editing must ensure the document flow smoothly, sensibly, fairly, and accurately and ha it is not likely to provoke legal problems that may result from cases of plagiarism and misstatements and other offences for the publisher.

During copy editing, the editor may make changes to the document or article, by cutting, either to fit or to trim it, either to fit broadcasting or publishing limits or to clarify the text meaning. Therefore the writer might find that the document has been changed drastically to fit the copy editors specifications.

Copy editing is not the same as proof reading even though reading proof is part of the job. For one to be give the work of copy editing in most newspaper he or she must be highly qualified in journalism so that he can be in position to come up with a perfect document and also discern the truth or whether the writer has plagiarized.
