Proofreading by Wordy

Seen from an ROI perspective it’s hard to overestimate the benefits of proofreading. With a relatively small investment, outsourced proofreading frees up the time of highly paid knowledge workers and saves you from costly rewrites or even liability claims.

All writers make mistakes which makes creating high-quality content a process that requires more than one person. Clever companies and individuals recognise this and use proofreading to reduce cycle times and remove the risk of embarrassment.

What is proofreading?

Proofreading is the process of checking a written work for errors in grammar, spelling and punctuation. On the surface, this seems like a simple process, but proofreading is more than a spellcheck. As any writer knows, checking your own work for errors is virtually impossible, and that is why professional proofreading is invaluable.

Outsourcing your proofreading will save you a great deal of time. In fact Wordy can help you cut cycle times by 30 per cent or more. Regardless of whether you have a short text or a large volume of work you’ll benefit from professional proofreading. Moreover, no software can match a human proofreader; when it comes to context, wording and sentence structure a professional proofreader will always stand out in making the text easier to read and your message easier to understand.

Wordy uses professional proofreaders around the world who can:

  • comprehend the text and its cultural context
  • understand grammatical structure and idiomatic nuance
  • double-check for factual errors, typographical gaffes, mistakes within images, omissions, inconsistencies in page layout and a whole range of other subtle concerns that commonly afflict documents.

Frequently asked questions

What does Wordy proofreading and editing involve?

The Wordy proofreading and editing process involves making corrections to grammar, punctuation, spelling, use of appropriate words, internal consistency and logical structure. This process is also known as substantive editing, developmental editing or comprehensive editing.

What does rewriting involve?

Rewriting means substantially rewording your content in order to improve consistency, flow and the natural use of language. When ordering rewriting, please be careful to brief the editor on exactly what you are looking for. Based on a price per word, you can use rewriting as a tool to condense and reword your content, but not to expand it significantly from (for example) 400 words to 1,200 words.
