Proofreading


Proofreading involves removing and correcting errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar, as opposed to improving the wording (which falls under editing).

However, when proofreading, if something doesn't make sense or we think it needs to be reworded, we'll raise that in a comment.

Your document is carefully read through and marked up twice - once on screen, then on paper.
Changes marked up on the hardcopy are then transferred back to the electronic copy, which we return to you with changes tracked and comments raised where necessary.

It's easier to spot mistakes on a printed copy, and this final check ensures the best result.

We check and correct the following:

  • spelling
  • punctuation
  • capitalisation
  • spacing between words and lines
  • 'widows' and 'orphans'
  • font style and size
  • contents page and list of illustrations
  • tables, diagrams, figures, captions
  • page numbers, headers, footers
  • numbered lists
  • heading consistency
  • internal consistency and referencing
  • footnotes, references, cross-references
  • contacts, addresses, telephone numbers
  • preliminary pages and end matter
  • anything else requested

Document formats we proofread include:

  • Microsoft Word - corrections are made using the 'Comments' and 'Track Changes' functions, allowing you to see every change and choose to accept or reject each correction.
  • PDF - corrections are indicated using Adobe Acrobat's 'Comment & Markup' features.
  • Websites - corrections can be made either in Microsoft Word or directly through your content management system

If you have a question about proofreading other formats, please enquire.
