Is proofreading the same thing as copyediting?
Though many people use the terms
interchangeably, proofreading and editing
are two different stages of the revision process. Both involve
close and careful reading, but they focus on different aspects
of the writing and employ different techniques. The definitions
of the two terms are given below.
Copyediting - Copyediting is what you begin
doing as soon as you finish your first draft. Copyediting
can be done on several levels: Content, Overall Structure,
Clarity, Citations etc.
Proofreading - Proofreading means a final,
careful check on a document. It is a technical process,
which always involves finding spelling, grammar and formatting
What do you do for proofreading?
we basically make sure the spelling, grammar and
punctuation are accurate, the facts are
accurate, the graphics are looking
right, the website links are working perfectly etc.
What do you do for copyediting?
In Copyediting, we identify and correct
errors in word usage/choice, grammar, awkward phrasing,
paragraphing and help in removing excess "fluff" from a
story, making it clear and clean. If we are curious about
something, we make suggestions and even interview the writer
for more information. If again, something is boring, we
note that too and ask the writers what point they're trying
to make. Hence, we will provide suggestions about edits
that might need further explanation and suggest other edits
that were not made to the document.
also make comments on whether the story reads smoothly, the
information flows from one paragraph to the next, the quotes add
to and support the previous information, the identifying or
given information is present and consistent, the visual design
and text formatting are consistent and a lot more.

Can't I proofread my copy myself?
Unfortunately, for all of us, proofreading our own work can be very difficult, and in some cases, pointless.
This is because the same mental processes that went into composition are the ones you will use to correct your work.
But, when a proofreader examines your work with the fresh eyes and impartial knowledge of English, there is a sure way to guarantee the grammatical accuracy of your work.
I have a spell checker on my computer. Why do I need you?
A spell checker is just a tool. It doesn't know the difference between "two" and "too," or between "they're," "there" and "their." It can not determine whether a particular spelling is the correct one for the context. But the people reading your work do. A properly proofed and formatted document protects your reputation and projects a professional image - qualities for which nobody should rely on their spelling checker.
