This article is the perfect example of the massive cost of a tiny typo, and the huge importance of an effective and thorough Editor/Proofreader. I pity the poor people who missed this error!

Though this was an unfortunate case of human error, even by professionals, it does highlight the risk in sending out a document that hasn’t been thoroughly vetted by an experienced Editor/Proofreader.

The most important lesson here? Never place your trust in your automated spell-checkers alone – this could easily happen to you or your organisation, causing embarrassment with potential clients, logistical nightmares and financial loss.
