When you need editing, send your copy by e-mail (pasword protect if a sensivie document) or provide a CD with the information. It will be edited using tracking changes in MS Word (MS Word 2007 and 2010 and documents can be saved to MS Word 2003). This way you can see what was changed or altered and decide if you want to accept, reject, or possibly reword.
Have sensitive material? WinZip is a good software program to compress and password protect your files. I work with clients in California, Florica, Colorado, Ohio, and Texas.
