What is editing?

Editing is a creative process that transforms texts, improving the quality of the phrasing and making them more coherent and easy to read.

Editors check texts for both style and form.

Both editing and proofreading can be performed on a cloud platform, your own CMS, or in files.

What is proofreading?

Proofreading involves checking texts for errors in grammar, syntax, and punctuation.

Proofreaders check texts for form but not for quality of expression.

To determine the quality of a source text to be proofread and the applicable proofreading rate, a free initial assessment is performed.

A second pair of eyes

To guarantee top-quality, we offer tandem translation, where one translator translates and a second translator checks the work of the first one as the project progresses, ensuring that the correct meaning is maintained in the target language. This verification step adds 50% to the translation rate.

Marius Royal, Content and Community Manager

movavi-software-limited

Given the volumes we need to translate weekly and the number of languages we localize our website and apps into, Alconost offered us the best solution in terms of flexibility, pricing, and quality among the translations agencies we were considering. The quality of the translations is quite high with the proofreading service that Alconost provides. Our Alconost manager is one of the nicest people I've ever met. They always pay attention and try to meet our translations needs in the best way possible. They were especially helpful during our transition to Lokalise for app localization, so we were able to build and maintain a consistent and reliable localization process.
