Revising written work is the continual process of rearranging, changing, and re-writing, whereas editing is a process of grammar or punctuation correction. The word edit is both a noun and a verb. An edit is a change that is made to a document or written work. Editing is also a job done by an editor. The editor may take on many different roles.

An editor is generally a person who reads an author's book and guides the writer in the right direction. An editor decides which books will be accepted and which one will be rejected. To revise a document is to re-read it and see if any alterations can be made. Revising the document often takes several times, and it needs to be done with clarity and enthusiasm.
