What is Proofreading?

Proofreading (also written as proof reading or proof-reading) involves reading each word, sentence and paragraph individually and checking for grammar, punctuation and spelling errors. It also checks page and chapter numbering, and formatting of text, headings and page layout. It is suitable for projects that have previously been through a structural edit or copy edit or well-written material that requires a final check. There are two proofreading services available:

  • Standard Proofread - checking of a project that has been previously edited or copy edited
  • Comparative Proofread - comparing a copy edited copy of the project (dead copy) with a revised copy of the project (live copy) to ensure all the suggested amendments have been implemented. If you request a comparative proofread we will require copies of both the copy edited project (dead copy) and the revised copy of the project (live copy).
