Proofreading is defined as a careful check for errors in texts as a very last stage of translation process.

During this stage, the proofreader fixes minor spelling and punctuation mistakes, typos, formatting issues and inconsistencies.

Proofreading is a vital process for any text that will be shared with audiences, whether it is a scientific paper, technical user manual, game screen prompt, online course or a print brochure.
