So, what's the difference between proofreading and editing?
Proofreading is essentially the final check of an already-edited document. This is the stage at which typographical errors, spelling, punctuation, formatting, layout etc are checked. It’s usually the last check to determine whether a document is ready for publication/ presentation/ delivery.
No matter how perfect your document may appear, it is always important to get someone else to give it a final proofread. That second, fresh pair of eyes can often find errors that you missed on the first ten checks.
At Bothersome Words, we have years of professional proofreading experience from working with legal publications to checking book and magazine proofs and dyelines, reading through annual reports and presentation materials to proofreading for the Yellow Pages and checking marketing brochures.
We promise thorough proofreads with fast turnarounds at reasonable rates.
