Why Does Proofreading Matter?
The importance of proofreading cannot be stressed enough. No matter how good your content is if it is ridden with spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors it will create difficulty in reading, comprehending and will undermine your credibility. A mere few minutes devoted to proofreading does not catch glaring errors and usually misses a lot. A definite plan with a systematic search is required to find specific errors.
At JatsTech we take the following points into consideration when proofreading:
