Human or machine — What would you prefer to do your financial editing?

Editing is much more than checking for grammar, spelling and structure. It is the ability to look at the big picture and weave context into analysis for maximum impact. Although an automation tool may be useful in speeding up the process and saving costs, it cannot check for balance and argument of a report, thus impacting readership.

Key Takeaways

1. Human editors through engagement with authors and understanding of the intended audience assist in creating impactful content
2. An editor not only provides a fresh perspective, but also has a better understanding of the content than a machine
3. Fact-checking and ensuring compliance with regulations are other important areas where human editors trump machines
