While you’re here, check out this blog on ‘Why editing is important?‘ Here’s a little snippet:

“Even when you’ve got a good handle on the English language when it comes to writing large documents your chances of making errors is very probable. After all, you’re human. You could ask your trusted friend to proofread or edit your 50,000+ word PhD thesis, but that’s a big favour right there. You could just put it aside for a few weeks, come back to it with fresh eyes and edit yourself. However, sometimes being so close to the work you never guarantee all mistakes will be caught. Is it realistic to expect an author to read their own work as an objective reader? A separate unbiased pair of eyes will only do.”
