WHO NEEDS A PROOFREADER
Anyone or any company who writes something that is going to be read by others needs a proofreader as writers, and editors make mistakes. Also, many publishing houses are reducing their in-house staff due to economic reasons, and as books still need to be proofread, more and more work is going to freelancers, in fact the majority of proofreading work is now carried out by freelancers.
Proofreaders are needed for millions of items each year, including books, magazines, newspaper articles, websites, leaflets and brochures. The advantage of being a freelancer are that you can take on as much or as little work as you wish and earn as much or as little as you wish. You can work the hours you want from your own home.
