In today’s world, we often interchange words with similar meanings. As time slips by, the distinctions between these words begin to vanish. One such example is that of the terms “proofreading” and “editing.” These two words are interchanged so often that we find many clients thinking our editing services are merely proofreading services.

  1. Interesting. I would understand confounding the different editing services (inline, copy, developmental) but I believed no one could possibly consider proofreading as being the same as editing (the first being the last in the polishing process tasks before publishing).

    So the “Believe it or not” comes as a shocker 🙂 Like, “believe it or not, red wine is different than white wine”
