Proofreading

In proofreading a text, I address the following:

1. Spelling mistakes (for example, spell-check doesn’t distinguish between there and their)
2. Grammatical errors
3. Errors in usage (such as principal when principle is meant)
4. Incorrect punctuation marks (such as periods outside quotation marks)
5. Plus, a number of other details both mechanical and verbal, such as matching the table of contents to chapter titles and so on

Proofreading is done after copyediting. Therefore, when proofreading, I assume sentences don’t need to be rewritten and logical inconsistencies have been corrected. However, I will provide comments, not corrections, if I find something that is obviously wrong.

For any questions refer to my FAQs
