Hank has co-authored a report with a bunch of colleagues. Perhaps you do this, too?
Hank is pretty confident in his writing style. But…
- Veronica is verbose
- Amelia is abrupt
- Harry from HR writes a mass of jargon and acronyms.
It’s all too clear that several people have written the report; it lacks consistency and a clear voice.
Hank wants it to be a whole lot better, but he has two problems:
- He’s flat chat.
- He feels very awkward editing his colleagues’ writing.
Fortunately that’s where Hit Send can help. We edit multi-authored reports all the time. We are often asked to:
- make sure there is one voice and a clear message
- ensure consistency (usage, spelling, company terms)
Yes, our clients report that it is much easier for them if we ‘adjudicate’ on style and grammar. It’s easier for everyone to accept the outcomes.
