Editing vs. Proofreading #infographic #writing

Do you know the difference between editing and proofreading? Many people tend to confuse editing and proofreading even though they are vastly different tasks. Editing occurs at the beginning of the writing process, typically after the first draft has been completed. It is an in-depth review focusing primarily on content, clarity, and tone. An editor will ensure that your writing is accurate, relevant to your topic, and written in a way that is appropriate for your audience.

In contrast, proofreading occurs at the end of the writing process and acts as a final polish of your work. Proofreading focuses primarily on fixing grammar mistakes and catching spelling and typographical errors.

Both editing and proofreading play a crucial role in the writing process. So, how do you know whether your document is in need of editing or proofreading? Check out this infographic to learn more about the differences between the two.
