Editing and Proofreading with Track Changes
All documents are edited in Microsoft Word with track changes. If you aren’t familiar with track changes, that is absolutely fine as I can guide you.
Track changes have replaced the long-drawn-out process of printing, editing, then scanning or faxing the pages back.
- I open your document.
- Edit with track changes.
- Send straight back to you via email.
No wasted paper and everything runs much smoother.
Why Do We Miss Typos While Editing and Proofreading of Our Own Work?
“You are the most likely person to miss typos in your own work.”
Not only are you most familiar with the meaning in your work, but your brain processes words as images. What does this have to do with editing and proofreading?
Meanings: Your brain will skip over typos because it knows the meaning you are conveying. So, it fills in the blanks and skims over slight misspellings, i.e., ‘teh’ vs ‘the’.
Visuals: Your brain also becomes familiar with the image it is seeing. If you change the colour, font or size of your text, you’ll be able to pick up more typos because the brain is working to familiarise itself with the image again.
Do you use spell check? Yes?….
That’s great, but it isn’t a hole in one. Unfortunately, it can still miss punctuation, grammatical errors and correct spelling. Furthermore, it cannot read the text as a person would.
