Proofreading

What Is Proofreading?

Proofreading is the process of reviewing the final draft of a piece of writing to ensure consistency and accuracy in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting. A thorough proofread of your work will give you the chance to fix any errors that remain and that may cloud your intended meaning.

Why Is Proofreading Important?

Though many computers and word processors offer spellcheckers, they cannot catch tricky grammar and spelling errors to the same level of accuracy as a professional proofreader. Our proofreaders will correct errors, no matter how big or small, to ensure your writing communicates your ideas clearly and correctly.

Here's what you can expect from a proofread by Scribendi:
