Editing (Substantive)
This level of editing is the most serious and extensive. It’s what I do 99 percent of the time when I receive a document. Substantive editing goes beyond correcting spelling, grammar and style and includes eliminating extraneous words and making corrections to formatting, hierarchy/organization, and content — or questioning content in an inserted comment — that is either a continuity error, doesn’t make sense or is not sensitive to the intended audience.

Here are two examples of this type of editing from corporate citizenship reports.

Here’s an example of editing very technical material for compliance with AP style, with some comments regarding consistency. This is a hard-copy edit of a product guide of technical parts for automotive and transportation applications.

Now for some writing samples.
