    Proofreading

    Proofreading is the last step in the editing process—and the final stop before publishing. Copy editing and line editing can include changes (such as correcting inconsistent spelling or hyphenations) to the manuscript’s language.

    A proofreader’s role is more about quality assurance. Proofreading is not the time to revise, rewrite, or delete.

    A professional proofreader brings a fresh set of eyes to your work and finds absolute errors such as:

    • Misspelled names
    • Wrong/bad URLs
    • Numbers that don’t add up in a table
    • Repeat words
    • Missing words
    • Any mistakes you have overlooked

      “Amazing Editor”

      “CaTyra is an amazing Editor! It was a true pleasure working with someone as anal as I am.  Our most profound moment while working together was when she told me to remember, “We are shooting for excellence over perfection.” That is when I knew that I was in the right hands” -Tysharda

      “Quality editor, that charm is CaTyra Polland!”

      After 5 yrs of trial and error to find a quality editor, I can say I finally found one! I’m so happy that I met CaTyra of Career Prep. Her prices are great and she kept me updated on the progress of my project.  For me, the 5th time was the charm and that charm is CaTyra Polland! –Ebony
