Our proofreading services span text in any form, for any purpose

Proofreading (proofing) involves checking page layouts in PDF or print format. Often confused with editing, it differs in that it is usually effected manually on the finally laid-out pages of a document. Proofing ensures that material to be published or printed includes all text and graphics, perfectly reflects the intended layout and is free of errors. It is sometimes called copy-editing.

Clients frequently request proofreading when their material requires editing. This is no reflection on the quality of the document but rather on its format or stage of production. Ensuring that page layout and colour reproduction are flawless, that textual and graphic elements are correct and complement each other, that end-of-line hyphenation is grammatical and that footers, headers and page breaks are ideal – proofing does all this.

Language Finesse offers proofreading services in English and Afrikaans.
