You can change an author’s file on-screen relatively easily – but editing it efficiently and effectively requires more skill and specialist knowledge. Through a series of hands-on exercises, this course shows you how to make on-screen editing a more efficient process; improving the speed and quality of your work. You will learn best practice in preparing files for import into typesetting programs and you will also learn how to find the best resources on the internet. At the end of this course, you should be able to edit efficiently on-screen and customise Word for editing. This course contributes to PUB 19 of the Book & Journal Publishing National Occupational Standards.
