The Right Tools for the Job

Written by Jennie

Punctuation is something which is rarely taught in depth in schools these days. You're no doubt familiar with the use of basic punctuation marks like periods and commas. You may, like many people, have trouble with apostrophes and make occasional mistakes with question marks. What should you do, then, in a situation where it's important to get punctuation right? You may decide to turn to a punctuation guide. The trouble with this is that punctuation isn't as universal as you may have imagined and in some contexts your punctuation guide may lead you astray. Once you've got the basics right, what matters is not simply using accurate punctuation, but using the right punctuation for the job.

When you compare different punctuation guides, which is easy to do online, you'll find that they often give different advice. How can you decide which punctuation advice is correct or which is best suited to a particular job? EditFast editing professionals can help. It's part of their job to be familiar with punctuation styles of all types and to be able to apply them to the particular documents you're working with. They'll be able to help when you need very formal punctuation for a contract, say, or when you need to drop more complex features of punctuation to make a particular piece of writing easy for the general public to understand and enjoy.

Getting punctuation right is not just about making a good impression - in some cases it can change the nature of what you're trying to say, which can even cause legal complications. Whenever you're working on an important document and you're unsure about your punctuation, it's worth consulting a punctuation expert. Getting these things right at the start can save a lot of trouble later on.
