Conscious Language Editing

if we come across any conscious language issues during the edits that we perform. We may advise a Sensitivity Reading of your manuscript based on its content and your knowledge of the portrayed lived experience.

Our Conscious Language Editors will carefully examine various aspects that could potentially raise concerns. We will address physical descriptions that do not accurately reflect real-world attributes or perpetuate stereotypes, as well as biased or offensive portrayals of character behaviours. Our focus will be on utilizing person-first or identity-first language, making a clear distinction between sex and gender, and incorporating gender-neutral and inclusive terms and pronouns. Additionally, we will provide alternatives to commonly used expressions that may dehumanize marginalized communities and identify and replace discriminatory language, phrases, and themes.
