proofreading

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 translations, 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.
