Formatting and Layout

CambridgeEditors offers a full array of formatting services to help writers produce professional documents that adhere to industry, discipline, or institution standards. Projects that often require specific formats include books, theses and dissertations, articles, brochures, and manuscripts intended for self-publication. A Formatting Editor is often very helpful to graduate students whose school programs set stringent layout requirements for submission or to those whose work is being submitted to publishers, self-publishing programs, or e-book programs with specific guidelines. For those whose work contains photographs or tables, formatting is often necessary in order to achieve visual consistency.

With CambridgeEditors Formatting and Layout Service, writers are ensured of proper and consecutive pagination, regular chapter progression, footnoting and reference layout, and other specific requirements entailed by particular individuals’ work. CambridgeEditors offers formatting not just of textual material but also of photographs, graphs, tables, and other miscellaneous visual accompaniments. We will correct, or create, the front and back matter pages of your document, including title pages, tables of contents, indexes, reference sheets, and appendices.

Our editing is most commonly performed using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes and Comments tools. However, we often conduct work requiring formatting in applications other than those of Microsoft. We work with our clients in order to offer them formatting support for PDF, LaTeX, and Adobe InDesign files. We are prepared to consult with you on solutions for your formatting needs on an individual basis.
