How to hire a great freelance Proofreader

Proofreading is a form of editing in which the copy editor examines text and fixes any errors to make it as clear, concise and consistent as possible. Proofreading services can be especially useful for students and businesses who don't have time to review their own work and are looking for professional help with this difficult task. Essentially, proofreading entails going over a document looking for inconsistencies or errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation.
Proofreading is a vital element of any writing project. It’s the final step before you press publish and let your words fly out into the world. Good proofreading has a big impact on the quality of your writing, at both an editorial level by making sure that there aren’t any glaring errors and stylistic level by adopting a consistent voice throughout the piece.
By hiring a freelancer to do this important job for you, you can be sure that your writing is free from mistakes that could prove embarrassing when shown to customers or clients. Freelancer.com provides a range of incredibly talented proofreaders that excel in helping you clarify your message in any piece of writing.

What does a freelance proofreader do?

A proofreader is someone who examines written documents for incorrect or unclear grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax and sentence structure. They have a quick eye for spotting mistakes and strive to upgrade the quality of your writing, and ultimately your message.

Why should I hire a freelance proofreader?

If you've already spent a lot of time writing something, the extreme familiarity can make it difficult for you to spot your own mistakes. Overlooking mistakes can degrade the quality of your work and your document will lose its intended professional touch. A freelance proofreader is not only a second set of eyes, but they're also a set of eyes that are specifically trained in reviewing all types of written work - allowing them to efficiently and effectively take your document to the next level. They're also relatively inexpensive when compared to other professional skills.

How much does a freelance proofreader cost?

Proofreaders can charge anywhere from $5-$50 per hour. A highly experienced freelance proofreader with a professional background is likely to charge more than the average proofreader and will most likely do light editing and formatting work as part of their service. However, the total cost depends largely on factors like the length of your document, the complexity of your language and the structure of your text.
