Frequently asked questions

A freelance proofreader is an expert at proofing copy to ensure the accuracy and quality of written material. Their job involves looking for mistakes in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting. As a freelancer, they can help an organisation ensure their written content is up to standard and error-free. They also often help with other tasks such as fact-checking, ensuring information is accurate and consistent, and double-checking references. A freelance proofreader can be invaluable to any team and can hugely improve the quality of written content.

First, a top-tier proofreader should have an excellent command of the English language, both in grammar and spelling. They should also have a solid grasp of the conventions of writing, including punctuation and proper formatting. The ability to recognise mistakes quickly and accurately is key. Additionally, a proofreader should be able to work within tight deadlines, as well as multitask to ensure accuracy and attention to detail in their work. It’s also important for a proofreader to have good communication skills, so they can explain any changes or modifications they have made to the copy. Finally, a strong understanding of industry-specific terminology and subject matter is critical to producing top-notch proofreading results.
