What’s the difference between editing and proofreading?

proofreading services described

We offer two levels of services – editing and proofreading.

Editing involves an editor improving the quality of language and expression. This includes the style, clarity, organization, word choice and tone of your writing.

Proofreading, on the other hand, is less “hands on” than editing. It is suitable when you’re generally satisfied with the quality of your writing. However, you require a meticulous editor to correct surface errors, such as grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes.

English as a Second Language (ESL) writers tend to benefit much more from editing services as opposed to proofreading.

Why hire a professional proofreading service?

A document intended for distribution or publication – whether a thesis, dissertation, book or business document – must communicate its message in the clearest possible way. A critical feature of clear and successful writing is to be free of grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes.

Errors and inconsistencies reflect badly on your professionalism. It also detracts from your ability to communicate the intended message.

A professional proofreader is far more capable than a lay person in ensuring that your writing is clear, correct and free from error. Our proofreaders are trained to locate errors in written work and to enhance the quality of the documents that they review.

Global English Editing provides professional proofreading services. All our proofreaders are trained editors and have great experience editing academic, book and business writing from both native-speaking and ESL writers alike.
