Explanation:
Автор предлагает к публикации статью, однако, по требованиям журнала или газеты, она должна быть определенного размера - скажем, 500 слов. В этом случае нанимается специалист по abridging, который должен сократить статью до нужных размеров, сохранив при этом суть, стиль и т.д. Так что, скорее всего, это редактирование с сокращением (кучеряво, черт возьми!). Умнее ничего в голову не приходит.
