Mafoko Manuscript Services
|Mafoko home page||Editing||Translating||Research||About us||Resources|
Drs Lederer and Molema have between them more than twenty years' editing experience. We have edited both academic and creative work, as well as other types of documents such as job cover letters. We are currently working on an anthology of Batswana women's writing, along with two colleagues at the University of Botswana.
Our editing services include the following:
- content editing: we can look at your early drafts and give you an estimation of issues regarding structure, language, expression, suitability for genre, etc. This service does not include copyediting or proofreading, since we assume that you will want to do more work on your project once you have had an editor go over it.
- copyediting: once your manuscript is to a stage where you are happy with the content, we can provide a copyedit to ensure consistency of facts, grammar, spelling, punctuation and expression. This service does not include checking for typos and other smaller errors, since you will want to make sure your work is consistent throughout before it is given a final check.
- proofreading: this is the final check of your manuscript for typos and other errors that might creep into a manuscript as it is revised and edited.
