In order for a document to be print ready, it needs to be checked for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, thus this is where a proofreader comes in. Proofreading is the strategy used for reading a galley proof or an electronic copy of a publication to find and rectify reproduction errors of text. Proofreading is the final step before the end of the editorial cycle and before the copy goes to print or publication.
