Just when we all thought traditional spelling and grammatical skills were on their way out, ready to be replaced by slang and ‘text speak’, companies are becoming more and more aware of good English, good spelling, and good grammar. In fact, more importantly than that, they are becoming pickier about it. So, before you give up proofreading, perhaps we should all be thinking more seriously about it.
Proofreading (also proof reading) is an important part of any publishing process, whether you are publishing a magazine or a press release. The Oxford Dictionary definition of proofreading is to read any written or printed material and mark any errors. However simple it may sound, proofreading can actually be very difficult to do if you are not a professional. As the author of a piece of work, spotting your own errors and mistakes is a lot trickier than it first seems. But why is this all so important?
The reputation of your business exists in a very delicate balance: with enough work it can flourish and develop but in turn, it can also be broken with the smallest of errors, such as publishing information without subjecting it to business proofreading.
When writing any promotional or online content to advertise or promote your business, it can be very difficult to see your work or your business in an objective way. This is where the Proofreading Services from Precise English are helpful.
