Editing

When one mentions editing, the first thing that comes to mind is editing the news articles in newspapers and magazines. But there is much more to editing than just this.

Editing, in its highest form, is a specialised function requiring exceptional skill in the language. Yet, apart from correcting grammar, spelling, and punctuation, the process involves checking facts, ensuring consistency in terminology, data, style, etc., and enhancing flow and transition to sustain the interest of a reader. Where necessary, an editor may need to send the author suggestions and clarifications in order to prevent any change in meaning.

Editors often have to follow formatting guidelines to enhance presentation, and consult style manuals in the interest of consistency. And, of course, editors need to proofread in order to spot the minutest of errors.

Proof-reading

Proofreading is the task of comparing a translation with the original text, and ensuring that there are no spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, misunderstandings, omissions or ambiguities. A proofreader will also consider the style and vocabulary of the translation and may make constructive suggestions to improve the syntax and clarity of the text.

He/She fine-tunes the document to produce an accurate, culturally sensitive and polished final translation of your project. A proofreader also places special emphasis on details, including numbers and client-specific standards.

Finally the translation is reviewed by the Project Manager and then we deliver it to our client. We receive many projects to proof-read that have been earlier translated by freelancers or other agencies. We are glad to undertake them. Though most of the times the client has undergone a lot of difficulty before reaching us.

  • Professional language editing and proofreading team

  • Strict confidentiality policy and robust IT system
  • For English our Editors are specialized in American, British and Canadian styles
