What are proofreading and editing services?
They say that the devil is in the detail, and it really is! Any texts or content should be edited to ensure that it is well-structured, consistent and factually correct. Editors will also assess copy for clarity, logical argument and repetition while considering both tone and style. Proofreaders analyse edited texts to identify spelling mistakes, poor grammar, typos and punctuation errors. Edited copy will be consistent and will feature the smooth transitions which ensure that it is easy to read. Your messages will boast instant appeal and more immediate impact.
Microcopy can make or break any digital content. Microcopy refers to the small elements of copy, including action buttons and input fields in forms. It’s the detail that is related to actions which users take. Microcopy may appear to be insignificant but as it relates to a reader’s motivation to act and the instructions for taking actions, it is a crucial element of your content. PRESS Co., Ltd experts ensure that microcopy is optimised to promote positive engagement and that it is expressed in an appropriate tone.
Most organisations have a mission statement. In Japan, these are poems. All companies boast a poetic mission statement, and a business is unlikely to gain any traction without one. The poems relate to the feel and character of a product or service. Therefore, they should be beautifully phrased, refined and visually appealing. PRESS Co., Ltd have many talented creative writers that can compose the perfect poem to market your product or service. The unique words will attract attention to your brand and communicate your sincerity. On behalf of PRESS Co., Ltd and Word Connection, we look forward to serving you and your company’s needs as well as supporting our employees in the pursuit of their career goals.
