Have you ever gotten your transcript back from a proofreader and felt like you just got burned? Have you ever wondered why the proofreader marked what they did? Maybe you questioned why they didn’t mark something you feel should’ve been marked.
You probably know what proofreaders look for, but in case you don’t, take a look at this preference sheet.
Transcripts are almost never black and white, and this preference sheet is hardly comprehensive. Communication is so important, especially in the editing process, and a lack of communication kills.
This an open forum for YOU to say how you feel about proofreaders. Whether it’s flat out being ignored, misunderstandings, or if you want to give credit to someone who makes your job easier, leave a comment down below.
