proofreading & editing
Do you ever feel like you hold back from writing more, due to grammar or spelling mistakes?
Do you wish you had a ‘second pair of eyes’ to look over blog articles or work documents?
We love writing at In The Mixx Marketing, but know that it isn’t everyone’s favourite past-time.
If you’d like some help with proofreading, or perhaps would like to add a little flair or that ‘finishing touch‘ to your documents or articles, then we are here to help.
What is the difference between proofreading and editing?
This is a really common question we are asked, and leaves many people divided on whether there really is a difference.
Overall, editing looks at making changes and suggestions to your writing (or the document), that will provide for a more consistent message. Or, it enhances the existing concept of the article or document. It may result in improved expression and language and provide the reader with a more pleasurable reading experience.
In comparison, proofreading considers the spelling and grammatical elements of the writing or document. Have you placed full stops and commas in the right place; are there any spelling mistakes; have you misplaced apostrophes etc.
What are the benefits of using a proofreader or editor?
- When we read our own writing over and over, we have the propensity to miss small errors
- We are human and everyone makes mistakes
- Some people may find it embarrassing to have errors pointed out AFTER an article or document has been published
- Every document should always be proofread by another person to minimise errors and improve the quality of work
