Just connect your laptop to a wifi of your own choice and dive right into it!
When you are proofreading a text, you are the last filter in the chain before the text is being sent to the client. A must-have skill when working as a proofreader is that you have an eye for details, and it is very important that you are not afraid to make necessary changes to get the text up to the standard it’s supposed to be on. You must be able to work towards deadlines and have a strong work ethic in order to succeed in your proofreading career.
In the proofreading, it is therefore extremely important that you check the text for:
- Spelling and grammar
- Structure (paragraphs and subheadings)
- Content (correct and relevant information)
- That the given instructions have been followed
To have a job where you can combine your passion with work sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? But it’s not, so what are you waiting for? To get started, sort on “Freelance Proofreader” in the search field above.
