Quite often the final stage in the editing process, proofreading is the quality control of the previous edits. This is, in effect, the 'proof' that the document is ready for publication. In this stage, you can expect me to:
Compare with previous edits, or proofread 'blind'.
Check for mistakes in spelling, basic grammar and punctuation.
Follow your house style.
Query factual errors.
Check layout features, such as page numbers, heading and captions.
PLEASE NOTE I AM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE FOR PROOFREADING SERVICES
I may get all my gold out. The great thing is never to feel bored with one’s own writing.
