EDUPROOFING

This page is all about EduProofing.

  What exactly is "EduProofing"?

In simple terms, it means the "teaching" of "proofreading",
among many other related disciplines.

For example, in wanting to learn about becoming a professional
copy editor and proofreader, through to an author needing further
 knowledge about how to correctly produce 'good copy'.

In particular, when it associated with PRS Proofreading Services, and
producing perfectly revised and corrected English ready for publication.

To give you an idea, observe the following image.

You will observe from the above image that PRS Proofreading Services

 is informing about some of the mistakes and errors that they will

naturally correct in any English manuscript or document.

This image appears on the PRS Website, so it is telling visitors
 about the basic copy editing and proofreading work that PRS conducts.

That is very clear to see and understand.

Now take a look at this next image.

In this image, they are teaching about Copy Editing & Proofreading.

That is to say that they are informing about the correction of English.

In other words, about the work that a copy editor and proofreader

conducts every day in their work.

So this is different from the daily correction of an English document

for an author's paper or manuscript.

Here they are "teaching" about "what to do" and "how".

It is like an instructional teaching for a potential editor or proofreader.

This is usually difficult work and time-consuming.

Opposite to the revision of a client's English writing.

Now look at this next image.

In this image above, it refers to the "proofreading process.

What does that mean?

It explains and teaches about what is involved in "proofreading".

There are several steps in the word "proofreading" - not only one stride.

In essence, there are four major parts of the action of proofreading,
although this can be broken into several more 'mini-steps'.

First of all, the "Review of the Text".

The purpose of this procedure is to glean what the writing is all about,
while at the same time, grasping the level of English correction needed.

Is it a scientific work?  Is it a novel?  Is it newsworthy?  Is it history?

Well, it could be about countless other topics, such as sport, government,
medicine, geography, intellect, entertainment, literature, finance,
so many different things.

Thence, this review has mainly two objectives.

1) To understand what the author is writing about; where the Text is headed.

2) To interpret and grasp the level of needed English correction.


COPY EDITING - First Draft

In reality, Copy Editing includes 2 Drafts, or even more.

It is almost impossible to only edit in a single draft,

 especially if the subject matter is complicated, such as in a scientific work.

Why?

Because the full meaning and the structure of the intended Text only becomes clear
after the end of the "second draft".   The first draft clears the way, and moves the dead wood.

Copy Editing is the most important part of proofreading.

This is the heavy 'dirty work'.   Most often referred o as "The Nuts and Bolts".
