Proofreading

Proofreading - Tia Ross EditorialAttention to detail is essential when it comes to writing. There’s nothing more embarrassing (or costly) than finalizing a document for distribution or giving a presentation only to find in mid-delivery that your work is littered with spelling mistakes, poor grammar, and rogue punctuation. Proofreading generally occurs near the end of a project, after the material has been edited and approved, just before printing, publishing, or distribution. 

As proofreader, I’ll mark up a hard (printout) or digital copy of the finished product. Unless I find formatting issues, I make only minor changes that do not impact the overall aesthetic. My proofreading service involves scrutinizing the text line by line with attention to:

  • Spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, numerals and hyphenation
  • Removal of repeated words, phrases or paragraphs
  • Correction of any corrupted characters, sometimes created by copying or converting from one software program to another
  • Consistent styling of fonts, headings, colors, etc.
  • Consistent typesetting elements, such as leading, kerning, line breaks, paragraph indentations, margins and line spacing
  • Placement of and captions for photographs and graphics
  • Corresponding contents and page numbers
  • Juxtaposition of text and images on the same page
