What is proofreading?

Proofreading is the final stage of reviewing a written document for correctness, to identify and rectify errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting.

The primary goal of proofreading is to catch and rectify surface-level mistakes that might have been overlooked during the drafting and revising stages.

As a proofreader, I will focus on identifying and fixing typographical errors, misspellings, punctuation mistakes, and minor grammatical issues. I will also check for consistency in formatting and ensure that the document adheres to a particular style guide.

What is copy-editing?

Editing involves a more comprehensive and in-depth review of a written piece, addressing not only surface-level errors but also examining the overall structure, clarity, coherence, and effectiveness of the content.

Editing aims to enhance the overall quality of the writing by improving its organisation, flow, and coherence. It also involves refining the language for clarity, eliminating redundancies, and ensuring that the tone and style are appropriate for the intended audience.

As an editor, I may suggest reordering paragraphs, rewriting sentences for clarity, checking for consistency in tone and style, and addressing issues related to logic and coherence. I may also provide feedback on the overall structure and organisation of the document.
