So, once the material is thoroughly proofread and
fact-checked, how do our comments arrive? We tried sending them on a scroll with a herald, but that posed obvious problems, and heads rolled (so to speak). So we devised a system that is better for everyone.
Our eminently useful feedback comes to you in a masterfully marked-up PDF. This format makes it easy to understand exactly what changes we’re suggesting, and lets us detail why we’ve suggested a change. We also document our online and printed sources, giving you backup if anyone in your court wants to confirm our rationale for a change.
Our marked-up comments are designed to be shared with others, and they’re easy to print out. (We’ve banished confusing and paper-wasting printouts – you know, the ones that use numbered sticky notes with connecting lines across too many pages – to the dungeon!)
In summary, ProofingQueen’s marked-up PDFs:
- Are clearly annotated and easy to read (onscreen or in a printout)
- Are handy to email to every member of the project team
- Provide clear suggestions on the thornier issues, with references to online/printed sources
to help resolve the question (or to win any arguments with your team)
- Allow you to delete the changes you don’t agree with before you send off the marked-up PDF for further review or to your studio for updating
