How our proofreader works?
Proofreading is the last stage in the editorial process – the final check-through before the text is published. Ideally, to ensure that the material is at its best, the text has already been professionally copy-edited before it arrives on the book proofreader's desk. Our professional proofreaders look-in to the following areas:
Accuracy: Correcting errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar, catching all the misspellings, spotting that misplaced apostrophe and sorting dodgy verb agreements.
Consistency: Maintaining and Sticking to the consistency. They bring the text neatly into line, ensuring a consistent style is applied in areas such as capitalisation, italicisation, hyphenation, punctuation and spelling styles.
Please note that our proofreading does not involve improving the writing style in any way, so they never rewrite clumsy sentences or improve flow. We understand that that's the job of a copy editor.
If your book is to be clear, accessible, interesting, memorable and effective, the language needs to be of a good standard. Some authors need only minimal support; others need more intensive copy-editing; but all authors, no matter how accomplished, experienced or skilled, can benefit from our language polishing. The service helps non-native English-speaking authors to get their language polished.
