What is the difference between proofreading and editing?

With proofreading, your editor will check the spelling, punctuation, grammar, and other basic elements of your writing to make sure it is error free and easy to read. For more details, see our proofreading page.

With editing, your editor will make more substantial changes, which may include revising sentences, restructuring paragraphs, and adapting the written tone of your document. For more details, see our editing page.
