|Proofreading is taking care of the technical side of things – typos, grammatical hiccups, too many or too few spaces, apostrophe catastrophes, hyphens -vs- dashes, inconsistent fonts and sizes, punctuation overkill, etc.
||Editing is spotting the flaws in logic, unstrangling sentences, clearing ambiguities and generally polishing the text. It is the editor’s job to make the author look good.
||An exceptionally good editor must be able to rewrite, where necessary, while maintaining the style and voice of the author. In addition to proofreading and editing, Text Perfection also provides this writing service.
