Copy editing and proofreading - for publishers and typesetters managing book production projects

Future Perfect offers comprehensive on-screen copy editing, encompassing full coding and styling of manuscripts, and sensitive editing for consistency, accuracy and clarity of expression. We are skilled in academic style and referencing conventions, experienced in undertaking style conversions from UK to US and vice versa, editing the work of non-native English speakers, and rewriting complex and technical texts in 'plain English'. No substantive edits are ever made without the input and consent of the author. Proofreading, for accuracy of both content and setting, can be carried out on-screen or on hard copy. We can collate author amendments and offer advice on text movement, pagination and indexing issues where extensive changes are required. Get in touch for information on rates and availability.

Project management - for publishers looking to outsource the management of pre-press book production processes

From manuscript to final PDF, Future Perfect can arrange and oversee every aspect of production (copy editing, typesetting, proofreading, collation, revision and finalisation), employing skill and experience in author management, and working to budgets and timelines tailored to each project. We can work with your approved suppliers or utilise our own, providing rigorous quality assurance and reporting throughout the project. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Editing and text preparation - for self-publishing authors

If you have a manuscript that you would like to self publish, Future Perfect can assist you in preparing your files for setting or digital upload. We will carry out a thorough copy edit, including coding and/or styling as appropriate for your chosen publication method. We can advise on typesetting and printing costs for those who would like to see their work in print, and can even arrange and oversee these processes with tried and trusted suppliers.
