What does a proofreader do?

Proofreading is an editing technique that finds and corrects errors in an already written piece of text. (For example, a business letter, essay, Web page, or report.) The proofreader checks the text's grammar and punctuation, spelling, word choice, and organization. Proofreaders also check for consistency in spelling and use of company-specific terms. Proofreaders also read the text aloud to check for hearing, voice, and tone errors.

How to become a freelance proofreader?

• The first step is to become a great proofreader. It is important to recognize errors in grammar, usage, and spelling.
• Step two is to find clients. You can find clients through networking, or you can make flyers advertising your services and place them around town.
• Step three is to get experience. You can find employers who will help you develop your skills. It would be best to build up a catalog of previous clients before advertising yourself as a freelance proofreader.
• Step four is to ask for referrals. Repeat business can be a great source of income.
