What’s the Difference Between an Editor and a Proofreader? 

A professional editor can help you find your voice, and organize your overall piece of content so it flows well and is readable. She will know the different formatting options out there and which one is appropriate for your piece of content and industry.

Editors keep the entire piece of writing they’re reviewing in mind as they are reviewing it to ensure clarity between main topics and ideas. Editors will also fix grammatical errors that need to be fixed in order for the piece of content to be coherent, consistent, and readable. While an editor will make suggestions and fix minor errors, it’s important to remember that they are not hired to rewrite an entire piece of writing.

A professional proofreader will correct grammatical, spelling, and typographical errors in your content so that it is crisp and legible. With industry specific content, proofreaders will also often verify industry-specific terminology and acronyms (ex. SEO for “Search Engine Optimization”) to ensure they’re being properly used.

Proofreaders do not solely rely on spell-check  and grammar-check technology either, as those technologies are often unreliable and don’t always account for proper word usage and vernacular in a variety of instances. Professional proofreaders will review each word and piece of punctuation in a piece of content bit-by-bit and are very thorough. Similar to editors, it’s important to remember that proofreaders aren’t typically hired to rewrite an entire piece of writing.
