Proofreading consists of reviewing any text, either hard copy on paper or electronic copy on a computer, and checking for typos and formatting errors. The term proofreading is sometimes used incorrectly to refer to copy editing. But many modern proofreaders are also required to take on some light copy-editing duties, such as checking for grammar and consistency issues.
Proofreading is the final stage of the editing process, focusing on surface errors such as misspellings and mistakes in grammar and punctuation. The document should be proofread only after other editing revisions are finished.
It is a lengthy process as it takes a little extra time to proofread a document correctly. Sometimes we think if the content is good the document would be better. But other than the content style also has its own importance to make a document look better. The way a paper looks affects the way others judge it. Most people devote only a few minutes to proofreading, hoping to catch any glaring errors that jump out from the page. But a quick and cursory reading, especially after you've been working long and hard on a paper, usually misses a lot. It's better to work with a definite plan that helps you to search systematically for specific kinds of errors. The proof readers at Earth Lingua are one of the best proof readers in India.
