Post your proofreading and grammar-checking project on Upwork and hire proof readers and book editors with excellent grammar skills. You will also find professionals who have experience with proofreading software (like grammar and plagiarism checkers) and editing tools (like Microsoft Word’s “track changes” feature) to check the spelling, grammar and vocabulary of your documents. With accuracy and attention to detail, they can proofread business proposals, marketing materials and tech reports; review your articles, blog or website content; or correct book translations and audio transcriptions.

Proofreading is the process of reading through an electronic copy (or galley proof) of a piece of written work to detect and correct errors before it is published. On Upwork, the world’s largest online workplace, you will find native English speakers and proofreaders familiar with editing marks and the APA, MLA, Harvard and Chicago style guidelines to provide you with professional editing, grammar checking and proofreading services.
