Most editors I've worked with have checked some facts,
for example, the company contact info in the boiler plate,
and some basic science/engineering facts that are common
to whatever industry we're working in. However, when it
comes to actually verifying the new technical content of a
document, in the instances when I've had the luxury of
having an editor, our workload has always been so heavy
that there wasn't time for that.

I'm wondering: How many of you actually work with
editors who check facts as well as writing? At what
point in the development cycle does the editor start
checking facts? How long does it take them, compared
to checking writing? And how well does it work? For
example, how much additional fact checking is required
before the documents go out the door?
