Proofreading versus Copy Editing

Not sure about the difference between Proofreading & Copy Editing?

Well, hiring an editor is the first port of call for a new manuscript. They will deal with your work in depth, from fixing spelling mistakes and grammar, to checking style and revising wherever necessary. That said, I have been proficient in picking up inconsistencies in a manuscript as well.

A copy editor/proofreader like myself is brought in to give the manuscript a final polish. This includes checking formatting as well as spelling and grammar (yes, stuff often gets missed in the initial editing phase!).
