Tia Ross | Copyediting & Proofreading Services

Proofreading

Proofreading occurs after layout on material in final format, to eliminate errors in textual and visual elements before printing, publishing, or distribution. It includes checking for:
  • Minor mechanical errors, such as spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, hyphenation, or deviations from style sheet
  • 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, running heads, colors, web page heading tags, hyperlinks, metadata, cross-references, etc.
  • Consistent and accurate design 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
