Quality professional translations at affordable prices
Professional Proofreading and Editing Services
Sometimes, translators make typos and other grammatical and spelling errors, which are not always discovered and corrected during a quick check of the completed translation. Additionally, a careful review of the translation by an editor will often reveal that the text can be improved by rephrasing, using different expressions or changing the sequence of the content.
If your translation is intended for publication (for example, an advertising brochure, website content, an article for a scientific journal, etc.), we recommend utilizing the professional proofreading service. Your document will be checked by a professional bilingual editor, which will eliminate any errors related to punctuation, grammar, spelling and basic style. After this review, your text can be published with confidence, without having to worry about issues that could adversely affect your image.
Our pricing policy does not include the professional proofreading service in the cost of translation services. We offer this service separately. This enables the customer to decide whether or not this service is necessary. If the translation is intended for personal or internal use only (where a quick review will suffice), you can save money by ordering the translation only.
What is the difference between proofreading and editing services?
The editor only works with the translated text while proofreading and is limited to correcting the shortcomings concerning punctuation, grammar, spelling and the basic style of the text.
During the editing process, the editor also uses the source text, checking for accuracy. The editor can adapt the text according to the customer's wishes for a target audience or market, or completely change the style of the text without altering its overall meaning. Editing is a more complete and intensive service that may be necessary in some cases.
