How does proofreading differ from copyediting?
Proofreading involves identifying and fixing grammatical, typographical, and punctuation errors, whereas full-service copyediting includes a broader review of content clarity, wording choice, consistency, repetition, and organization (in addition to fixing typos and errors).
