What proofreading is not

Many agencies use the term proof reading when they actually  mean  editing or revising or some other form of  checking and correction.

Often a agency asks for proofreading when actually the text requires editing, and not understand that a proper editing is going to cost more than a just proofreading.

There is a   tendency in translation  industry to equate proofreading with 'just do whatever is needed to deliver the job.

The clients should be explained that  editing and proofreading are two different jobs.

Proof reading is not Critical revision  or to revise the text, change of word usage, sentence structure, content logic and writing style.
