Copy-editing and proofreading are two different levels of editing.
For an excellent overview of the differences between proofreading and copy-editing, take a look at the guidance from the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
To find a copy-editor or proofreader, contact your national or regional editing society and check its membership directory – a list of the primary worldwide societies is available here.
