Proofreading is the process of doing a final review of your document to make sure all required edits have been made and to check for typographical errors, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other minor changes. It does not involve making major format changes or improving the wording of your document (see Editing, below) and so can be done at faster rate. It can also involve comparing two documents to each other to make sure changes have been made or that the two documents are consistent with one another. Proofreading can also involve applying guidelines, like your company’s “style guide” or your college’s thesis guidelines, to your document to make sure it’s consistent with those guidelines. The number of pages per hour is estimated based on how error-free the original copy is.
Editing, also called “copy editing,” is the process of reviewing the draft of your document and making changes to it for consistency, clarity and purpose. I keep in mind the audience you are writing it for and may suggest some minor rewriting or rephrasing to achieve your purpose. I also make changes to your format so that it’s consistent and attractive throughout. I can then proofread your document (see above) after a final edit is completed and approved by you.
