What is proofreading?

Proofreading is a skill that has not changed for decades. Despite the use of computers, desktop publishing packages, the internet and other technological innovations, there is still the need to check text for errors. Proofreaders do not look at the content, style or meaning of a document – they just look for errors.

What is copyediting?

Copyediting focuses on the details of the language on a sentence-by-sentence basis. This service ensures proper sentence structure and advises on improved word choices. It checks for consistency throughout and corrects any errors in grammar, spelling, syntax and punctuation. It checks that correct terminology is used and that information contained within the manuscript (e.g., names of institutions, dates of events and other factual data) are accurate. Copyediting also ensures that awkward language and obvious errors are corrected.
