The misperception that proofreading is related to editing is a common one, and the term proofreading is sometimes used to refer to copy editing, and vice versa. Although there is necessarily some overlap, particularly regarding queries (see below), proofreaders typically lack any real editorial or managerial authority, having only the option of querying items for typesetters, editors, or authors to consider. To clarify matters at the outset, some want-ads come with a notice that the job advertised is not a writing or editing position and will not become one. The lesson is that creativity and critical thinking by their very nature conflict with the strict copy-following discipline that commercial proofreading requires, that proofreading and editing are fundamentally separate responsibilities.

Writing down what you really want to say can be a difficult task, even for an expert covering his/her own field. Whether you are composing a novel, an important letter, or a business proposal, it pays to call in the professionals. The words and message will still be yours professional editing just makes them sound better, work better and achieve better results.
Editing is a more intensive service that involves more than proofreading. It means suggesting more effective ways of expressing your ideas, and reworking your sentences to make them clearer and more concise. Editing therefore includes proofreading, but also means providing creative improvements in wording and style.
