The Scrutineer uses MS Word track changes for most editing and proofreading services. Track changes apply red lines over the words changed and show the corrections made. Upon receipt of the proofread version, select ‘Accept Changes’ to have our modifications become permanent. Hard copy proofreading is also available.

  • Proofread PDF documents are returned with “comments” and/or “sticky notes” inserted.
  • Proofread Word documents are corrected using the Track Changes option with a second document generated that contains the accepted modifications.
  • Proofread documents in other formats are returned in various ways, including but not limited to, a separate Word document listing the errata.
