Many first-time clients of a professional editing company or freelance editor are unsure about the difference between editing and proofreading, and which service they need. Editing and proofreading produce different outcomes for writers, and therefore potential consumers must be aware of what they do. This guide outlines the difference between editing and proofreading, not only to help our clients but for writers in general who are evaluating their options. Based on our experience as a professional editing and proofreading company, we also provide general recommendations as to what service a typical client should receive. The target audience is academic, book and business authors who are new to the publication process, such as students with a thesis or dissertation, first-time book authors or businesses newly outsourcing their editing or proofreading. We avoid editor jargon and focus on helping writers make an informed choice between an editing or proofreading service.
