Before you send your book or marketing material out into the world, it's important to have someone look closely at the text and layout, to pick up any errors that may have snuck past the editing process.

A proofreader checks your document or manuscript as a whole and line by line, picking up literal errors, inconsistencies and layout problems.

Proofreading does not replace editing; it is a separate step, the final step in the publishing process, intended to catch any last-minute problems before your publication can be viewed by its audience.
