Proofreading for guaranteed quality
Proofreading consists of comparing a translation to the original text. This is a critical step that guarantees the quality of the translation and formatting. Proofreaders carefully check for the following in each translation: precision, appropriate terminology, spelling errors, typos, conjugation errors, and more. If needed, the proofreader also revises the style to ensure the final document is clear. Just like the translator, the proofreader has access to your instructions, glossaries, and your own translation memory. This exercise requires strict attention to detail, in-depth knowledge of the topic, and excellent linguistic and editorial skills.
Perfecting your documents through revision
Revision is recommended in a number of cases. Was your document not written by a native speaker? Our experienced revisers can read through your text and catch any language errors or unnatural phrasing. This method is especially useful when you want to have the text translated into several other languages later on. The better the original text, the better the translations will be! Revision takes it a step farther by significantly improving the impact of your content on your business. After removing any errors, our revisers use their editorial skills to reformulate, restructure, clarify, and polish the text as needed. We can adjust the style to make the document more catchy, elegant, or inspiring depending on whether you're trying to sell products, capture your customers' attention, or communicate with your employees. We will also make sure your document is tailored to suit your target audience and sociocultural environment so your message is expressed idiomatically and appropriately.
Correcting texts to promote your image
What's more cringe-worthy than a slogan with a spelling error? Make sure your press releases, reports and websites are correct and error-free. Spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation—proofreaders look at everything. As experts in their native languages, they go over your text with a fine-tooth comb before using cutting-edge tools to complete a final verification.
