Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC) is one of the largest settlement organizations in Alberta offering a broad range of comprehensive programs and services to facilitate successful settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees in Canada.
I had the great fortune of editing and proofreading ISC’s 2018–2019 Annual Report in early 2019 (March to May). The scope of the project included three phases:
- Stylistic editing to clarify meaning (e.g., eliminating jargon), ensuring coherence and flow (e.g., adjusting the length and structure of sentences and paragraphs), and refining the language (e.g., establishing or maintaining tone, mood, style, and authorial voice or level of formality).
- Copy editing upon completion of stylistic editing to ensure correctness, accuracy, consistency, and completeness (e.g., grammar, spelling, punctuation).
- Proofreading the final report, which included checking for adherence to design, minor mechanical errors (e.g., spelling or deviations from style sheet), and consistency and accuracy of elements in the material (e.g., headers, captions, images, tags).
ISC were wonderful to work with and I received great feedback on my services.
