Step 7 – Proof
Determine the appropriate level of proofing. Carefully scrutinize documents that will reach a wide or discerning audience.
Let your documents age before doing the final proofing.
Use a process to systematize proofreading. Use spelling and grammar checkers, but be aware that they cannot correct every problem. Also, avail yourself of text reading software to detect mistakes.
When possible, get help from another person.
