About the course

This course picks up where 'Introduction to Proofreading' left off. It assumes that delegates have attended this course or are familiar with the methods and techniques it contains.

Course description:

  • checking a page proof for structure and layout
  • dealing with widows, and with changes that could affect pagination
  • collating the proof corrections of three other people and resolving their disagreements
  • checking a revised proof to see that all the corrections have been made properly - and no new errors introduced!
