Job Description for Proofreader

Proofreaders check the quality and consistency of a written work. They monitor the accuracy in both the text and images, such as with grammar, spelling, page numbers, consistency in typeface, and the table of contents. Proofreaders receive the proofs of a publication just before they are to be published. There should be few errors in the final proof, so if a proofreader spots too many mistakes, they may refer back to the client and copyeditor.
