Our experts make all required efforts in making the relevant changes & suggestions in your writing to improve the overall quality of your assignment, particularly in relation to language
use and expression. They don’t simply churn out corrections to typos and call that ‘editing’ instead they seek to help you to enhance your writing on all levels – while retaining your voice – and they are very, very good at what they do. After editing, your language will be sharp and consistent, your expression will be crystal clear and the overall readability of your assignment enhanced.
While editing takes a deeper look at how ideas and information are presented in the document, proofreading requires efforts on correcting errors in spelling, grammar, syntax, punctuation & formatting. This usually occurs as the final step in the writing process before submitting the document. Although people often get tangled up between these two terms, it should be noted that proofreading is not editing although the two go hand in hand.
A proofreader checks for the seemingly little things such as typos (Eg., missing words or extra words), spelling errors, incorrect words (eg., accept vs except), punctuation & grammar problems, and consistency of format. Thus this step occurs as the last and the final one of the entire writing process. Editing on the other hand focusses on making changes that make an article easier to read & understand, better organised and makes the article more suitable for it’s readers. Since editing is an essential part of formulating a research argument, it occurs multiple times throughout the Writing Process.
Editing & Proofreading together helps to overall enhance the use of language and writing style of the document. For example, in a thesis, you want to make sure that you use a formal tone. Avoid using the passive voice, including phrases like I feel or I think.
