Proofreaders polish documents, making you look professional and boosting your credibility. Don’t let a missed typo tarnish your business reputation.
Any document, manuscript or web copy can and should be proofread. Even emails should have a second set of eyes review them. How many times has someone misspelled your name in an email? It has happened to me many times. Be the person or business who gets it right.
So, what does a proofreader do? Proofreading services include things like checking for proper grammar, punctuation, usage and spelling. In addition, a proofreader watches for problems in these areas of a document or webpage:
- Alphabetized lists and sequences
- Spelling of names
A proofreader will also point out writing that may need a bit of attention, but the actual changes are made by the author. The proofreader’s ultimate goal is to polish the writing without losing the writer’s intent.
