    Hi Atish,

    Thanks for this article and all the links. One thing I’d say is that your grammar and spelling skills need to be very accurate in whichever language you want to work as a proofreader – it’s meticulous work that needs great concentration and you must have a sound knowledge of the language.

    For me, I would try my luck on sites such as elancer and freelancer. I think the trick here is to be careful with where you sign up for. Some doesn’t pay you a dime for your work.

    Don’t forget to create a good portfolio for yourself. Better ones usually gets more chance of job :)

    Good luck and thanks for sharing mate!

    Hi Atish, you said it right. Nowadays, working in real offices is not necessary. People are more than happy to find work sitting in the convenience of their houses. The best part is that, internet is actually creating such opportunities. Thanks for sharing the post with us.

  16. Denis D. says:

    I personally used proofreaders before to edit my eBooks and other content that I wanted to publish. One thing you must note is that it is very important to choose a proofreader with an extensive portfolio of satisfied clients as this can make or break your written work. Do not always go for the cheapest option as this can give you very poor results. I have a proofreader that charges a fair amount and does an excellent job and I only use him to proofread all my work.
