Job description

Copy-editors and proofreaders work on various publications, online content, manuals and journals in the final editorial stages. Their role is to check texts before they are published to ensure they read well, follow house style and there are no errors. A copy-editor focuses mainly on stylistic aspects, fact checks and consistency and makes suggestions for any re-working or re-writing; a proofreader looks for any grammatical, spelling or typographical mistakes.

Many copy-editors/proofreaders work as freelancers for publishing houses, companies and other organizations.

Work activities

  • Checking copy for grammatical, spelling, and typographical errors.
  • Marking copy with standard proofreading marks to notify writers and editors of necessary changes. 
  • Adding/deleting words, phrases or sentences to improve the reading of a text.
  • Checking facts and statistics to ensure a text is accurate and correct.
  • Making stylistic suggestions.
  • Re-wording/re-working sentences or whole sections of text.
  • Working with paper and online manuscripts.
  • Liaising with publishing editors, writers and other clients.
