You might want proofreading if:
- Your material has previously been copy edited and the content and structure are final.
- Your material has been laid out for printing and needs a final check to catch and correct errors in textual and visual elements.
What proofreading includes:
- Check for accuracy and consistency of
- text elements (spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage)
- formatting elements (italics, boldface, special characters)
- page elements
- visual elements
- graphical elements
- navigation elements
- Ensure conformation to the chosen style guide.
- Create a style sheet or add to an existing style sheet, as necessary.
- Address any questions or areas of concern from you, the author.
What you will get back from a proofread:
- A marked-up copy of the revised document(s) or file(s).
- Any originals supplied in hard copy.
