TAKING A MULTI-PERSPECTIVE LOOK AT TRANSPORTATION IN CANADA

Every five years, Transport Canada expands its annual report on the country’s transportation sector into a comprehensive, 150-page trends analysis of the four modes of air, rail, marine and road. Ascribe won the job of editing, proofreading and providing original writing the expanded 2011 edition of Transportation in Canada, striking a dedicated team of editors to handle weekly flows of content, and refining and performing quality control inspections on more than 150 pages of detailed, specialized content. Our aim was to establish a single, common voice across the massive, multi-author report and ensure broad readability. As a result of diligent project planning and effective use of our editing capacity, each editorial phase of the project was completed on deadline — with positive client feedback on the quality of intervention.
