Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between editing and proofreading?


  • The purpose of proofreading is to correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Proofreading does not include making changes to content.
  • The purpose of editing is to make changes to the text to ensure consistency and flow. Editing includes improving word usage and the correction of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.




Do I need editing or content editing?


If your ideas are clearly communicated and you need help with proper flow and correction, then editing is the right choice for you. If the ideas in your written document are not clearly communicated, then content editing is probably a better choice. The purpose of content editing is to rewrite the content to ensure your message is communicated effectively. Content Editing also includes the improvement of word usage and the correction of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.




If I select proofreading, can you still make small changes to my text?


No. The purpose of proofreading is to revise and correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. If during the proofreading stage, we detect that the document needs editing, we will contact you with our suggestion to edit rather than proofread your document.
