The Difference Between Copyediting and Proofreading

Proofreading involves reading and reviewing documents to identify and correct spelling, grammar, punctuation or mistyped words. A proofreader typically scans through a document, marks up or highlights any text in need of change and sends it to an editor who re-reads the revised work to check for quality prior to finalization. By definition, proofreading is carried out on a facsimile of the finished product and checks only for mistakes. Copyediting or just editing involves is to finesse a writer's prose by ensuring that a document contains smooth syntax, adheres to the conventions of grammar, uses proper wording and the content is organized appropriately. An editor also recommends possible changes to the organization of the content and points out lapses in logic, sequential or chronological order and creates a stylesheet relevant to the document. A proofreader's job is correction, while an editor's job is revision.
