A good proofread will ensure that your writing is accurate and consistent in order to present your words and ideas in their best possible light.
– find and correct mistakes in spelling, grammar and punctuation;
– ensure consistency in spelling, hyphenation and capitalisation;
– make sure the layout – spacing, headings and so on – is consistent
– check things such as tables, graphs and illustrations are where they should be and correctly labelled.
