What is the difference between editing and proofreading
Texts that require deeper and more thorough checking are edited.
It is based on word-to-word correction, ensuring that the content is checked in detail. During editing, we check for sentence structure, correct subordinating conjunctions, tenses, appropriate language, consistency and fluency.
To achieve an excellent result, our editors will thoroughly check the text and correct it, but they may replace and rewrite parts when deemed necessary, always ensuring they respect the style and tone of the original.
Texts that require short, superficial checking are proofread.
It is based on word-to-word checking, with the difference being that it focuses on the more technical parts of a text. During proofreading, spelling errors, punctuation, upper-case and lower-case letters, textual consistency, and other grammatical and technical details are checked.
A text is proofread either when it has been altered after editing or when it is well-written enough and just needs a brief, final check to fully ensure that the final content is correct.
