After structural editing has taken place, and the author has carried out any rewrites, the typescript is ready to be copy-edited. This involves checking the text for anomalies and errors before it is typeset to produce proofs (a printed version of how the finished book will look). Among other things, a copy-editor will check for timing and continuity problems, loose ends, consistency of detail and irrelevant details, errors of fact, repetition, copyright and libel, as well as spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors.
