Proofreading vs. Copy Editing

Most people use “proofreading” and “copy editing” interchangeably, but these are actually two separate activities that are vital to creating an easy-to-read, impeccable document. Although there is some overlap, proofreaders and copy editors are generally on the lookout for separate types of mistakes. Copy editing tends to be more involved and includes fact-checking and in-depth formatting. Proofreading, on the other hand, involves finding very small errors including double words, comma splices, and general punctuation errors. Here is a chart comparing the types of errors proofreaders and copy editors search for:

Which One Should I Choose?

Well, that depends on you! If you have already done extensive editing and just need a second pair of eyes, proofreading may be for you. If you’ve just written a paper and don’t know where to start, copy editing may be the way to go. The choice is completely yours!
