In today’s publishing environments we must edit quickly, push documents through a review process in a short time using the internet, email, faxing, and instant messaging as the principal means of communication, and keep accurate records of the review process. The main program used for these processes is Microsoft Word.

Microsoft Word is the ideal program for editing documents that are primarily text. As a word processing program, Word has the full complement of features needed for text editing: spell check, grammar check, auto format, auto correct, version tracking, change tracking, and the ability to compare documents. Word allows multiple authors/editors to make changes to the document, allows for a complete, detailed review of those changes, and then provides the capability of incorporating the changes into the text to create a final, clean document.
