Technical Editing


A comprehensive edit begins with a high-level usability edit that addresses the document’s content, audiences, organization, graphics, and format to make sure the document is user-centered. For this assignment in Dr. Smith’s Technical Editing class, I was tasked with identifying a document and performing three types of edits: substantive, format, and style. In doing these edits, I was able to determine how the Berry Patch Farms website would benefit from the changes I suggested to improve issues affecting: accessibility, findability, readability, and visual clarity. I received an A+ on this assignment.
