EDITING, REVISION & PROOFREADING

  

Because the devil is in the details.

  

Editing/revision and proofreading are two components of the revision process; they concentrate on different aspects and use different techniques. Editing is the process of examining a text with the intention of improving the flow and quality of writing. In other words, it’s the process of checking and improving the copywriting of a document. Proofreading consists in looking for unintended mistakes without referring to the source text.

 

Very often, both tasks go hand in hand.
