What do these words really mean?

Do they have the same meaning?

No - Absolutely not - They are both different procedures

Copy Editing takes place first of all

Proofreading happens in the final stages of the revision


(also written as proof-reading or proof reading) means reading a proof copy of a text in order to detect and correct any errors, whatever they might be.

A proof copy is a manuscript that has been typeset after the copy editing.

Proof typescripts often contain typographical errors that are introduced by mistyping (hence the word typo to refer to misplaced, missing or incorrect characters).

Proofreading consists of reviewing any text, either hard copy on paper, or an electronic copy on a computer, and checking for typos and formatting and grammar errors and clear meanings and understandings.


Copy Editing
(also written as copy-editing or copyediting) is the work that an editor does in order to improve the formatting, the style, and the accuracy of the text.   Unlike general editing, copy editing does not involve changing the substance of the text.   It adheres to the original intended meaning.

Copy refers to written text or typewritten text, intended for typesetting, printing, or for publication.

Copy Editing is always done before Proofreading, which is the last step in the editorial cycle.

"The 5 C’s" summarise the copy editor's job:   Make the copy clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent.   Copy Editors should “Make it say what it means, and mean what it says”.

Typically, Copy Editing involves correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation, terminology and jargon, timelines and semantics (meanings); always ensuring that the script adheres to the author's or publisher's meaningful style.

Often, Copy Editors are also responsible for adding any "display copy", such as headlines, standardised headers and footers, together with photo and logo captions.

With PRS Proofreading Services, the bulk of Copy Editing involves the correction of Scientific Manuscripts or Academic Articles or Theses.
