Editing & proofreading

We polish your texts to make them shine – fluent and free of errors.

So, you’ve drafted a text and are reading it through before it gets sent to print. But you can’t help feeling it doesn’t sound right. Ideally, you’d like to get it proofread and edited, but you just don’t have the time. You ask your colleagues for their opinion, but they generally can’t shed any light on the matter either. What you need are professionals who can proofread and edit your work rapidly yet reliably, in any language. Professionals who will dot the i’s and cross the t’s, and make sure that every comma is exactly where it’s supposed to be.

Simply send us your text to be corrected or proofread – it won’t be long before a customised quote is sitting in your mail box.

Editing & proofreading – the finishing touches

It goes without saying that we always check spelling, grammar and punctuation – but sometimes this isn’t quite enough. In some cases, you’ll need a linguistic fine-tuning that puts spelling, grammar, style, word choice, comprehensibility and readability under the microscope. Your press release or marketing brochure, for example, needs to read smoothly and do what it’s supposed to.

In editing, it’s not what you say, but how you say it that matters. In proofreading, it’s being punctilious about punctuation and scrupulous about spelling. Both steps are recommended before publishing a text.

Proofreading

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Typos
  • Hyphenation
  • Syntax (word order & sentence construction)

Editing

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Typos
  • Hyphenation
  • Syntax (word order & sentence construction)
  • Style & comprehensibility
  • Formulation & choice of words
  • Readability
  • Consistent style
  • Content structure
  • Logical links

Think about what you need the text for. Is it going to be published in a magazine, newspaper, or online? Will it be seen by lots of people?

In cases such as these, we would definitely recommend our editing service. This is our full package, which also includes proofreading. You can expect a corrected text, with any imperfections smoothed out.

FAQs about editing & proofreading

Our proofreading service checks spelling, grammar, punctuation, typos and syntax. Our editing service is more comprehensive: in addition to proofreading, we also look at style, readability, as well as comprehensibility and phrasing. In short: For proofreading you need a microscope; for editing you also need a scalpel.

What you need depends on what you need the text for. Is it going to be printed in a magazine? Will it be seen by lots of people? In cases such as these, we would definitely recommend our editing service. This is available in our full package, which also includes proofreading. Opt for this service to get a pitch-perfect text. However, if you have the opportunity to get your text edited in-house – i.e. checked to make sure it’s comprehensible, readable and well-phrased – you can still request our proofreading service, in which we take a magnifying glass to spelling, grammar, punctuation and so on. Still unsure whether you need an editing or proofreading service? Let us help you make a decision – based on your text(s), we will send you a customised quote in no time.

We can handle editing and proofreading in all languages. Our translation agency in Vienna is proud to boast an extensive network of professional editors and proofreaders in whose very capable hands you can trust.
