Your document is proofread using the ‘track changes’ function of Microsoft Word. This is a standard function installed in most versions of Microsoft Word. This function allows you to move easily between changes and accept any or all of the modifications proposed by the proofreader. Corrections, suggestions and comments are shown in the right-hand margin and are easy to accept into your document.
When we have finished proofreading we will return two files to you: a tracked version and a clean version of your proofread document.
As you work through your document, every change can be accepted (or rejected) individually, giving you the best chance of perfecting your work and understanding why the changes have been made. In addition, your work will be returned with comments on sections of your text which you may want to clarify, or where you may want to reconsider your stylistic or structural choices.
The advantage of this method is that in the tracked version of your document you can easily move between the changes the proofreader has made. The clean version is ready to print out and you do not have to type in all the changes yourself. Corrections, suggestions and comments are shown in the right-hand margin of the tracked version.
