Why Do You Need a Proofreader?

Spelling and grammatical errors in documents and books, on signs and pamphlets, and on websites and menus may immediately discount your credibility to customers or professors.  Mistakes in spelling and grammar may cause a potential client to question your attention to detail.  Consequently, that client may look elsewhere. Even simple errors may cost your business time and money.According to www.six-degrees.com

However, the most costly pricing mistake of all time happened in December 2005 when the Mizuho Securities Co., a division of the second-largest national bank in Japan, attempted to sell shares of a recruiting company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Instead of offering single shares for 610,000 yen apiece, a typing error led to the sale of 610,000 shares for 1 yen apiece. In less than one day the company lost nearly $340 million.

Then, according to a Forbes.com article, 

Professionals with fewer grammar errors in their [LinkedIn] profiles had achieved higher positions. The profiles of those who’d failed to achieve director-level positions within the first 10 years of their careers made 2.5 times as many grammar mistakes as their director-level colleagues.

After spending long hours looking at research papers, book drafts, websites, or brochures, it’s easy to start overlooking mistakes. A proofreader adds a fresh set of eyes and the skills necessary to correct mistakes and make sure your document is ready to go.
