How To Proofread

Included in this post is a collection of hand-picked articles and resources related to proofreading, but first, a few brief points to consider.

Proofreading is a useful skill you can use before sending out that important email, memo, letter, and other documents. When you take the time to proofread you save yourself from making silly mistakes.

I do it all the time, send out that email because it’s got to go, only to find after I sent it,  there were embarrassing typos.

From my experience, it’s better to take a few minutes to go over an email than to send it in a rush.

It’s even better to keep the draft if possible, do something else, and come back to the email to proofread it, you’ll catch more typos this way.

Another tip I have learned is to read the document out loud. This will help you catch errors and get a sense of how the content flows. If you have trouble reading your document out loud, it will be hard for anyone that reads it.

Have a look at the resources below I have included in this post for some useful tips and insights for proofreading.
