In this process, a proofreader combs through your work from start to finish, screening every page for any spelling or grammar mistakes. Their sharp eyes can catch every misplaced comma or incorrect apostrophe usage. Their role in editing is vital, avoiding any typographical errors that will annoy readings and making your work as perfect and polished as possible.
