How do you indicate spelling error?

If “incorrect spelling, grammar, or punctuation in the source might confuse readers, insert the word sic, italicized and bracketed, immediately after the error in the quotation” (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 172). For example, “they made they’re [sic] lunches.”

How do you indicate a typo?

When quoting, the convention is to quote the text exactly as it appears in the source. It is common to mark a misspelling (or other problematical word) that might be otherwise thought to be an error by you (the quoter) by following it with “[sic]”.
