This is the most basic/final round of editing, authors usually go for, before sending in the manuscript for print. Proofreading is usually done to make sure that the manuscript is error free and to check the spelling and capitalisation errors, typographical and typesetting error issues and a quick round of basic grammar checks.
Proofreading is usually opted by:
• The Poet, whose script doesn't require too many alterations.
• The Author, who is perfect at grammar and just want a quick scanning of the manuscript.
• The Author, whose script has been edited by a freelancer and still requires a final round of review.

In Basic editing, the editor corrects grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, punctuation, inappropriate length of the sentences and jargons. The intent of the sentences is not modified. No attempt is made to tamper with the writing style of the author. The simplicity of the sentences is maintained as-is.

In Advanced editing, the editor not only corrects any obvious errors (grammatical errors, spelling mistakes and punctuation), but also rewrites sentences and paragraphs, if required to remove inconsistencies and ambiguities. The editor uses his/her expertise to ensure that the document makes sense, and the text is clearer and more understandable.
