Why do I need a proofreader?

  •  It is impossible to read your own work – you are too close to the content to see the obvious errors. A fresh pair of eyes will pick up any errors you have missed.

 

  • Written material that is unclear or littered with mistakes will make you or your business look unprofessional, and will not inspire confidence in your readers or potential customers.

 

  • People are experts in their own field and do not always have the time or skills to proofread work correctly. A professional proofreader can carry out this task quicker and more efficiently, allowing you to concentrate on your own business,

 

  • If errors are missed it is extremely expensive to correct them once the final proofs have gone to the printers – even more so if the material has already been printed!

 

  • You may use a spellckecker on your computer but this will only highlight words incorrectly spelt. It will not notice the difference between 'their' and 'there' or 'your' and 'you're'.

 

  • A badly punctuated sentence can convey an unintended meaning, giving your audience the wrong message.
