I am looking for a word that encapsulates the idea of editing a sentence to make it sound more cohesive, compact and concise.
e.g. "We need to meet on the 11th to discuss our project and afterwards discuss dinner plans together. Then if there is time can we also talk about Jim?"
"We need to meet on the 11th to discuss our project, dinner plans and Jim."
Sorry about a poor example. Is this just called 'Editing'?
