  2. Spelling and Typographical Errors: Any spelling mistakes, typos, or typographical errors are identified and corrected.

  3. Sentence Structure and Clarity: Editors ensure that sentences are clear, concise, and well-structured. They may suggest rephrasing or restructuring sentences to improve readability.

  4. Style and Tone Consistency: Editors check for consistency in writing style and tone throughout the document, making sure it matches the intended audience and purpose.
