What is NOT included?
The difference between editing and proofreading is as follows, and quite often a combination of both is required:
Editing is checking and correcting: - language - logical structure - clarity - consistency and style layouts - illustrations - happens after writing and before final check
Proofreading is checking and correcting: - typographical errors - omissions - spelling - grammar - punctuation - consistency - happens after the final check and before publishing
"We employed Marion to proof read and double cross check our website late last year. Her brief was to identify all spelling, grammatical and or any mixed cross references within the site. Marion did this with extreme efficiency and located issues we had not thought were issues on the page, but when looked at in the overall context of the site were indeed issues. We are very happy with the work she did and as a result, we are now more aware in our day to day work of grammar and spelling! Marion is to be highly recommended for her dedication & diligence to the job at hand. We will be happy to call on her expertise again in the future. PS it is hoped that the above resume passes muster for spelling & grammar!" (Erna Spijkerbosch, QHP Creeksyde)
