What is Proofreading?

  • If perfection is important to you, then a proofreader is for you;

  • Proofreading is the final stage and a critical part of the editing process;

  • Our expert editor will carefully inspect your book in order to find and correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and vocabulary errors. The proofreader looks for accuracy in text, layout and images, and consistency in usage and presentation.

 

Why do you need proofreading?

  • The main goal of proofreading is to create a technically accurate language that can communicate your work clearly.

  • Proofreading is important to ensure that the rhythm and pacing of your sentences are at their best by making sure colons, dashes, commas and semicolons are being properly used.

  • A proofread may occur after the design process, but before the files are converted into print-ready or ebook formats;

  • A final proofread also happens with printed versions of your book, called proofs, that are checked right before mass distribution.

 

What is included with proofreading?

  • One round of proofreading and proof-editing;

  • Your proofreader uses his knowledge and skill after the design process, but before publishing, in order to find and correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and vocabulary errors;

  • Light copy editing;

  • Ensures quality and consistency.

 

What happens during a proofreading round?

What does a proofreader do?

  • A professional editor examines your manuscript and works with the aim of optimizing the result while minimizing the cost of production and guaranteeing no delays in publication.

  • When examining a text, the proofreader goes through each sentence with extreme care and attention, examining each phrase for grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors.

 

The proofreader may:

  • Do some light copy editing;
  • Help with grammar;

  • Fix inconsistent spacing;

  • Fix hyphenations;

  • Correct awkward word breaks;

  • Adjust spacing;

  • Correct awkward page breaks.

 

Quality assurance.

  • The proofreader uses care, knowledge, skill, judgment, and expertise to check that the work of the author, editor, and designer are satisfactory, marking amendments and advising the clients of problems.

 

The proofreader also:

  • Makes sure page numbers and headings are displayed correctly;

  • Checks if the table of contents matches chapter titles and page numbers;

  • Ensures that your style is consistent, either by following a style guide provided by your designer or by compiling their own;

  • Judges if there are changes that can be made, based on schedule and budget, that could improve your title. Sometimes changing one word can be the difference between a best-seller and a failure;

  • Eliminates inelegant or confusing breaks and design;

  • Check if illustrations, captions, and labels and content correspond.
