    Writing expert Tina Casalino discusses how to proofread a business letter.

    Tina Casalino: Hi, my name is Tina Casalino and my company provides writing and proofreading services. Today I am going to show you how to write a business letter and in this final clip I am going to provide couple of last tips before you send that letter off. In the old days we just had to resort to the fifty pound dictionary to make sure that there no typos in our letters. These days we have much simpler choices. Nearly every word processing program has the spell checker and grammar checker to help make sure that your letter is accurate.

    If this is a non automatic function, it should be easily accessed through the pull down menu. The challenge left for you is to make sure that your key messages the ones you want to convey in this letter are clearly stated. One way to do this is to go back and look at that scratch paper, make sure that the bullet points that you had written out, they are coming across.

    One helpful tip is to pass your business letter on to your friend or a colleague and have them read it or if you don't have time read it out loud. This will help you realize whether it makes sense. Do you ever feel overwhelmed by this or any other writing project. Feel free to consult with a professional. I hope these tips have helped you write your next business letter and thanks for watching.
