Presenting text in a certain style, e.g. shorter, simpler, or suitable for the web
If you wish me to do a re-write, I will be following your brief as to how your existing text needs altering to suit its new purpose.
Once it has been re-written, it should definitely be proofread, and possibly copy-edited. As I will have done the re-write, it would be better if someone else were to proofread and/or copy-edit it. I can arrange to subcontract either or both of these tasks if you wish.
If you need to translate what I have re-written for you, I can also subcontract this, or refer you to a reliable contractor.
I re-wrote a 14,000-word evaluation report of a pilot project in ‘plain English’.
Treegeneration was a pilot project that delivered urban tree planting schemes in north-east Wales.
The Forestry Commission felt the evaluation report had been written in language that was ‘stiff’ and too academic, so asked me to simplify it and make it easier to read.
The Forestry Commission Wales was the Welsh Government body responsible for woodland and forestry; it has been replaced by Natural Resources Wales.
I pulled together a report from raw statistics and focus group results.
Cymdeithas Tai Eryri had collected statistical data from its 'hard to heat' houses that had been fitted with air source heat pumps and insulation. Focus groups had also been held with the tenants.
I was commissioned to write a draft report; the 9,000-word text was finalised by the client.
Cymdeithas Tai Eryri was a housing association in Gwynedd and Anglesey; it is now part of Grŵp Cynefin.
