That is, when the designer returns a draft to me, someone else goes through and checks the designer has implemented all the changes I requested.
Why check everything? Well, I trust the designers I use, no question about that. However, they are human so may have missed something or misunderstood what I wanted. Or they could have made a simple error (eg made $654 into $664 instead of $646).
Having someone else check those details has two major advantages in my eyes:
I guess you don’t need to find a highly skilled person to outsource checking edits, either – as long as they are detailed orientated, it isn’t a hard task. I am lucky to have found someone I trust for many tasks as he not only checks edits have been made but will suggest other potential improvements he notices, too.
To me, this is the perfect example of outsourcing and leaving me more time to use my writing skills.
