Editor or Proofreader

While Editor and Proofreader are often used interchangeably, they are not the same.

A Proofreader focuses on words:

      • Ensures there are no grammar, spelling or punctuation errors
      • Checks line breaks
      • Reviews consistency and continuity of visible elements such as cross-references and captions
      • Ensures there is no deviation from provided style guide

An Editor reviews content and presentation in addition to standard proofreading:

      • Ensures material being presented is consistent and correct
      • Reviews copy for relevance, clarity and appropriateness
      • Considers content, language, style and design to support credibility and effectiveness of the communication
