Proofreading occurs after all other types of editing have been done.
Once your material
- is well organized,
- flows logically,
- is clear and coherent,
- contains accurate information and
- is complete,
it is ready for proofreading.
- correcting minor issues that may have been missed,
- ensuring your document adheres to design requirements and style guides,
- ensuring all material is consistent and accurate ( e.g. titles, links, visual elements).
Please note that proofreading is a final check of a document after all edits have been done.
Think of proofreading as that extra pair of eyes when you feel your document is ready; it is your last step before publishing.
