So what’s with all this editing stuff anyway? And why do we need so many types? Isn’t editing just, well, editing?
Well, yeah! Editing can be just editing. It can also be so much more which is why it can be broken out into copyedits, line edits, technical, developmental, etc. If you want a book to go through its final edit, you are likely looking for some overall spelling and grammar checks. If, instead, you want someone to check for flow and homophones, you need a line edit that goes sentence by sentence. Line edits are also great for websites. Technical edits check for form, copy, spacing, margins, etc, and they’re useful in just about every medium to make sure you don’t end up l o O k i n g Lik e this. (With today’s word processors, you would probably catch a lot of that. Sometimes you’re in a program that won’t, and that’s okay.)
