File Formats for Copy Editors?


Recommended Posts


I'm just getting started with Fiverr. I intend to mostly offer services related to copy editing and writing. Since I haven't had a gig yet, I'm wondering about file formats. What if a client sends me a document that I can read but which is not editable? Should I ask clients what format they prefer their final documents to be in? What is the most common format (again, for written documents) that clients send in, and what is most commonly sent back?

I'm personally not sure if I'd like to receive PDFs or send them back because I want to be able to easily edit without changing formats, and I also want clients who receive work back from me to be able to edit. I suppose the latter part is up to them. I'm just curious what others who do writing and editing gigs have to say on this.

Thanks in advance,
