Your document has been edited using Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature. This easy-to-use feature shows you a record of all the changes we have made to your document, so that you can accept or reject each change.

The Tracked version of your document shows all the changes we have made in the text and formatting, as well as detailed comments and feedback from our editors.

Here is how to decode the editing marks: All text that we have modified is underlined. Additions made by our editors as well as erased words are red in colour. Finally, comments are displayed in pink balloons, and are linked to the text by pink highlights. To see examples of the editing marks, please view this image.

The Clean version of your document contains exactly the same edited content as the Tracked version, but does not contain any editing marks. If you are finding the marks a little too confusing, you could ignore the Tracked version and refer to only the Clean version.
