I'm working in an office where the majority of the
personnel do not speak English as their first
language. I am editing highly technical reports
(scientific/academic writing) that will be distributed
to the clients. My co-worker received the document
with the tracking left on in order to see where all of
the edits occurred. I would also like to summarize the
edits to give him a list of issues to work on for the
next report. (My boss does not want to see me
correcting the same mistakes and wants to see the
co-worker learn from this experience.)

I've created a form with the following subsections:

Punctuation
Numbers
Consistency
Grammar
Word Choice

Would anyone care to share their approach?

Also, any PC term to use to convey sloppy or careless
work? (The language barrier really wasn't an issue in
this work, but there were a lot of careless mistakes.)

Thanks in advance,
Karen
