What can an editor do for you?
An error-free publication is every author's desire. An editior can help you achieve that goal.
The editor's job is to ensure that the manuscript meets style standards (like the Chicago Manual of Style) and to correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation, to check facts and suggest different word usage. Further more, an editor checks for consistency and logic, and reads with the needs of the audience in mind,
Simply said, an editor acts as the author's second pair of eyes and helps you clarify, re-organize, re-phrase, fine-tune, and polish your manuscript to make it shine.
