The term proofreading is sometimes used to refer to copy editing, and vice versa. Proofreading is the reading of an article publication to detect and correct production errors of text or art, but it also can include corrections to style and correctness of language, spelling and grammar. Proofreaders are expected to be consistently accurate by default because they occupy the last stage of typographic production before publication.

Proofreading & Editing Techniques for Executives & Managers

pexels-photo-381949.jpegIt’s hard to spoil high-quality content… or not? When it comes to content marketing and the creation of different types of writing content, proofreading and editing is just as crucial as the research and writing itself.

Why? Because when you offer writing content to the audience, you have to make sure that it looks flawless. Errors and typos that might slip into your writing can ruin this impression as well as damage your reputation. They basically tell the audience either that you weren’t attentive enough and didn’t put many efforts into content creation or that you have some problems with grammar and punctuation, which means that you aren’t a good writer you claim to be.

Either reaction is bad. It’s obvious that if you want to avoid it, you have to invest time and efforts into high-quality proofreading and editing. However, what exactly does this mean? What do you have to do in order to make your writing really polished and feel proofread?

1. Use various services.
The first and the simplest thing to do is to proofread your writing using some online service (for example, Grammarly). Such services check your grammar and punctuation and some of them even give you some stylistic tips.

However, if you want to make the most out of it, don’t settle for one service only. Choose a couple of other ones too and run your writing through them to ensure that all the errors were spotted.

2. Avoid distraction.

Some additions to Andrew Leniart's keen observations:

Feel free to invent a new word if you feel that the existing one is boring.  For example, "automated" is a terribly clichéd (so 90s) word that really needs to be "-ized" to jazz it up and make it fit for modern day corporate buzz-word parlance.

Just like any other tools, they are automatized and so unable to spot all the mistakes.

Sometimes we are so focused on grammar checks that we forget that other things have to be checked too.

I invariably find spelling and grammar errors on websites offering proofreading and essay writing services, so please don't take offence.  We all make such mistakes, but in articles about proofreading and on websites offering proofreading services, the spelling and grammar should be faultless.

Hello terry,

This is a follow up email to summarize what action has been taken to solve you’re the boot up issue that your laptop was experiencing last night.

Issue: Terry’s Dell Laptop doesn’t boot up.

Terry I am very pleased that the Dell technician confirmed my suspicious that the issue that was preventing your laptop from turning on was caused by a Virus or a Malware that you probably accidentally have download while surfing the internet.

It’s important to clarify that that issue was not caused by a defected Dell laptop but instead by a user error.

On November 21st 2016 I preformed the follow action to correct the issue:

1)      Backed up Terry’s Data on a flash drive
2)      Attempted to restore the laptop using a restore point (FAILED)
3)      Attempted to restore laptop keeping existing files (FAILED)
4)      Attempted Restored laptop to factory setting (SUCCESSFUL).

After installing a new copy of Windows 10 I installed :

•      Chrome Browser
•      Norton Antivirus
•      Adobe Reader, Flash and Java
•      Installed Wireless printer
•      Started the process to install Microsoft Updates

Terry confirmed that the laptop is working great as usual after I restored the Operating System.

This 3h and 45 minutes of technical service is free of charge as courtesy. Terry, remember that next time that there will be a technical issue generated by the user a regular charge will be applied.

Good Morning xxxx
,
I have very good news for you. I spoke with the xxx Account Manager this morning, I explained that while we were waiting for the ordered laptop to arrive you purchased a new laptop on your own. I explained that when  I received your laptop on Monday September 26th (two days earlier that what we were expecting it to arrive) I set it up for first time use, and I called you to schedule  the  delivery, you didn’t want it anymore due to the fact that in the meanwhile you had already purchased another one.

The xxxx Account Manager told me that they would take your laptop back and wave the restocking fees. They asked me to factory restore your laptop before shipping it back to them, this will take about one hour and I will be more than happy to do it free of charge and as a courtesy to you.

Dell said that it will take approximately 40 days to for the refund process to be completed. As soon as  I receive the refund from xxxx I will be able to cut the check to you too. The check will be cut for the amount of $841.00.

A charge will be apply in the amount of $ 240.00 for setting up your laptop as we agreed.

The amount you paid was $1,081.00 for the xxxxx Inspiron 5000 Series Intel 13”and included the antivirus $ 49.00 and the setup fee $ 240.00 ($ 1,081.00-240.00= $ 841.00)

Until today I am under the assumption that,  Row over this matter concluded long before. After getting your call yesterday, understand apparently  it was not true.

A  month before, when you whatsup me asking about my whereabouts to receive a call from your Uncle , during the discussion I express my un-willingness to involve in this subject.
I tried to explain you  soon after I done with that call, for some reason you couldn’t pick up my call.  However, I did a message to you.

It appears me, the issue is complicated to resolve dispute between agents.
(In first place, Who are we to manage that !!) It is their personal call.

As I am just being a customer, not our part to involve to manage relation between the agents.

As I am here in ABC, my family who manage finances at home-xyz city, If I explain them,  I am sure they will get more confuse & concern about the things going behind the scene and embroil in this matter.. ..which is not healthy!!!!!!!!!.
As the latest example yesterday, when you called me, unknowingly, implicitly you got into this subject. it is going to expand with non-actors which is going to create lot of head-ache who has no role to play in house dealing & agents personal issues.

Having said that, As we already been at the burden of getting house at expensive rate for just single portion,which is attached to a function palace hotel which is typically a very noisy place, which is huge drawback... ..but have to compromise for the time. However, …

4. PROPOSED SOLUTION

AAA recommends the following approach in order to improve the overall system and user experience for the xxx team.  The project will be broken into the following seven phases:

4.1 Phase 1: Initial Optimization of Company PCs Infrastructure Assessment
(This phase is in Progress)

All the 8 computers will be thoroughly cleaned and securely protected. The computer cleanup will be scheduled with xxx employees to make sure that no disruption of work will affect the staff.  AAA will optimize, clean, and make sure that all three machines are patched and working at peak performance.  This will increase the company’s productivity and staff efficiency.  So far 5 out of the 8 computers have been completed. Next computer in the list that need attention are Joanne, Tracy and Dan’s computer.

Kelly’s old computer has been replaced with a new one. And two additional computer have been push cased and setup for new user like Brianna and DM Temp in the accounting. I highly recommend to completely format Jim’s computer after the QuickBooks project is completed, that computer has serious issues and the cleanup improved the situation but was not enough to fix all the issues. When a new computer is purchased should be purchased considering the business needs.

4.2 Phase 2: Infrastructure Assessment
 
AAAA will perform an onsite assessment of the xxxxx’ IT infrastructure network identifying and documenting every piece of equipment needed to run the business …

3. SITUATION SUMMARY

3.1 Current Environment

Network Environment: Currently xxxx is experiencing very slow network performances. The computers are freezing in the middle of their work and all run very slowly.  The printers are working intermittently. The wireless router drops the signal of the connected devices causing an unreliable connection.

Company Computers: The majority of computers are infected with viruses and malware and they are running very slow freezing multiple time per day. Some computers are outdated, they are running with antivirus expired or even without antivirus at all.  Some computers can’t scan, or print. When they try to open a webpage the cursor sits and spin instead of opening the new webpage. One computer has profiles corruption and easy task like installing a printer or any software become a nightmare. Some computers are old and should be replaced.

Switch: The current switch in place has no sufficient Ethernet ports available to host new computers. There are no available ports to connect Ana’s computer and the new QuickBooks computer and eventually any other new additional computer that may be added in the future. Some computers/ devices are connected improperly to the router due to the lack of Ethernets ports on the switch. This configuration may cause network instability.

Internet Service Provider: Currently xxxx uses an obsolete modem connected to a wireless router.  The internet speed delivered by these two devices is 16Mbps. …

Hello Everyone,
I am informing everyone about the next two steps that will be happening at xxxx on Saturday 20th and Tuesday 23rd.

Saturday August 20th.

This Saturday August 20th Jim xxxx will purchase a new switch and install it.  When the new switch will be installed and more ports will be available, Jim will run a new cable from the switch to Ana station in which a new computer has been set up. Jim also will make sure to separate the Ethernet cables needed for the phone system from the Ethernet cables needed to run the computers network. This cleanup/switch upgrade must be done before the COX technical team install the new Router. In this way we will avoid confusion for the COX team and will avoid them to inadvertently bringing down part of your network.


Tuesday August 23rd

The Cox Technician is scheduled to come on site and upgrade your old equipment between 10:00am and 12:00am on Tuesday morning. They will replace the old modem with a new Modem/Router/Firewall with Wi-Fi capability.  Switching from the current situation in which you have two separate boxes one for a modem and one for a Router to only one box that combine Modem/Router/Firewall should fix the dropping wireless signal that you have been experiencing lately. It will also greatly increase the speed of your internet performances. You will be upgrading your internet from 16Mbps to 200Mbps. This will allow the 23 devices in your organization to be connected simultaneously without experiencing …
