Proofreading Services - The How's and Why's of It


A look at the art of proofreading

The meaning of proofreading is to check the errors of production of a document or a piece of text. The method of proofreading is considered to be the last one in the cycle of editing of the text and is thus, the most important task before the publication of the content. The persons providing the proofreading services i.e. the proofreaders necessarily have to be accurate and up to the mark so that they can mark out the defects in the text and mitigate them. Their main job is to look for the typographic errors and the production errors.

Why does one need proofreading?

Any thesis, dissertation, book, article, paper or journal needs to be proofread. The proofreader is expected to completely focus on the accuracy and consistency of the use of spellings, grammar and punctuation. The job performed by the proofreading services becomes all the more important if certain changes are made to the text after the copy editing of the text is done. Every editing expert recommends the proofreading of the content before it is sent for publishing. Thus, it is the final check on the content so as to catch the erroneous mistakes crept in the text.

Do you require proofreading all the time?

Nothing is required always. This is why you need to see if you need to hire the services of a proofreader or not. To determine this, ask why and how the proofreader can help you in your work. The main reason why the services of a proofreader are required is that the author himself might not realize that the content he has written has a mistake.

Learn to find out the right proofreader!

Just as proofreading is an art, finding the right proofreader can be considered an art too, albeit in different ways. Although the proofreader you choose might be an expert at spelling and grammar, but only an efficient proofreader can help to identify those mistakes which the author himself might generally miss. Accuracy and consistency are the two areas which are looked after by the proofreading services. It is the duty of the proofreader to check and correct the spelling errors and other punctuation and grammatical misstatements. Moreover, he has to make sure that a consistent style of writing has been followed in the entire text. He has to check for the consistency in capitalization, italicization etc.

To edit the content is not the task of the proofreader. This is the job of a copy editor. Thus, a proofreader will only check for the errors in the text and will ratify them, without changing the basic structure and type of the content. For the proofreading services, the general cost is $10 per 1000 words, and this varies with the amount of material to be proofread and the time given for the task of proofreading.
