At A Glance: Proofreaders

In the process of creating content, writers can sometimes take too much artistic license, fall back on bad habits, or even get too involved to remember to go back and dot all their i’s and cross their t’s. If you are in the business of producing written or typed content, you may not feel it is the best use of time to have writers return to their first drafts and correct grammatical or syntactical errors as opposed to beginning a new project. But proofreading and editing is one of the most important steps in writing, and it is essential to making sure the quality of product you produce is up to snuff. It is times like these when it becomes beneficial to find and work with a freelance proofreader and editor.

A freelance proofreader is responsible for reading over a piece and marking any and all grammatical errors. It is not often a proofreader’s task to make suggestions on content clarity or structure; that is usually reserved for an editor. Editors are not only responsible for making and noting changes to grammar, but frequently do make suggestions or changes to structure and content so that the piece can more accurately reflect the overall vision of the project. Hiring freelance proofreaders and editors is a cost-effective way to delegate what can often be time-intensive tasks while still keeping other talent within your organization focused on generating new content. A skilled editor or proofreader is capable of looking over several documents at a time and providing you with real-time collaboration on the changes that are being made.
