Our in-house team of editors are experienced in handling publisher-specific styles as well as several publication formats including monographs, textbooks, professional titles, trade titles, major reference works, and journals.
Our proofreaders possess excellent English-language skills, and they are trained to apply a systematic strategy to help them to identify and correct errors. Professional proofreading is performed by specialists who are trained in handling specific composition processes and publication styles, based on subject matter and format.
The proofreader reviews the editorial brief, style sheet, typesetting specs, and any unique instructions for the title before checking the proofs. The review process also involves a thorough analysis of the different elements that appear in a layout (such as headings, paragraphs, illustrations, and colors) for their correct dimensions, placement, type, style, etc. The proofreader then confirms that both the technical and style specifications have been accurately applied to the proofs and reads the pages thoroughly to ensure the integrity and cohesiveness of the content, as well as the consistency of style.
