The resources and services of this website are available to anybody who writes anything. Writers strive for perfection in terms of content, presentation and grammar. Authors hoping for publication, students submitting projects, portfolios and dissertations, candidates compiling CVs for job applications, company secretaries signing off on annual accounts, schools and clubs producing anniversary year books, web designers launching a new site, etc., need to avoid basic mistakes related to spelling, grammar or punctuation, that may well annoy the reader and reflect badly on the writer.

Proofreading will eliminate any such errors. Some mistakes can be quite noticeable while others can be quite difficult to spot. The former would impact negatively on the article while the latter may not result in any alarm bell ringing. I remember reading a newspaper article many years ago concerning a contract awarded to a company which had to translate English into Arabic. An oversight meant that the translation was written in the traditional left-to-right direction whereas in Arabic, the direction of words on a page is right-to-left. A challenging job for the proofreader no doubt, as well as an expensive mistake.
