Language editing services

Here at Novoterm, we offer language editing services to make sure that your texts work in their entirety and in their context, are grammatically and idiomatically correct and adapted to your target group.

Introduction

Text editing and proofreading services

At Novoterm Translation, in addition to translation services, we offer text editing services that include proofreading and copy editing of existing texts in Swedish, English or other languages.

When you choose us to translate your text, our service includes proofreading before delivery. This is part of our assignment as your translation agency and it ensures that everything is grammatically and idiomatically correct and appropriate for your target group. However, our language editing services go even further. If you need help editing your source text or improving a text that has already been translated, or if you need suggestions on how to refresh an existing text, we are here to help. We are experts in all aspects of language editing – proofreading, copy editing and text adaptation – for websites, other digital publication platforms and more.

Language editing services

Everyone can speak at least one language and many people are proficient in multiple languages – but at Novoterm Translation our skills go much further than that. We understand that a text needs to work as a whole and in its intended context. We know that a company often has established internal and/or external language usage rules and guidelines, and that it is important that these are followed in all written material, irrespective of the author and language. As the author of a text you may mean to say one thing, but your reader may interpret it in a different way. In all communication it is vital for this gap to be as small as possible, no matter which language is used.

Professional editing services

At Novoterm our clients do not merely submit a text; our professional editing services include identifying and understanding the structure and purpose of the text to achieve an end product that is perfectly suited to its target group. We ask questions and are genuinely interested in your needs and wishes. At Novoterm we love what we do!

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

Proofreading services

Proofreading involves reviewing a text at a superficial level. In general it is fair to say that all texts benefit from being checked by a second pair of eyes, because it’s easy for the author to become blind to errors or typos. This happens when the brain interprets and reads a text the way it was intended to be, making it easy to overlook a spelling or punctuation error or the obvious omission of a word in a sentence. A person other than the author reading through the text with fresh eyes is therefore more likely to spot these types of mistakes.

Novoterm Translation has proofreaders in Stockholm and throughout the world with many years of proofreading experience. When you use our service, you can be sure that your text will be free from mistakes or typos; it will be grammatically correct and will follow any style or usage guidelines that apply. In addition to correcting spelling mistakes we also rectify any sentence structure issues, punctuation errors or word choices that are problematic from an idiomatic point of view.

Text editing services

Our text editing services are more comprehensive. Copy editing involves scrutinising your text in greater depth. It is a more demanding task and often involves both rewriting and editing the text with a focus on consistency, logic and common themes. We might move paragraphs around, or shorten or add to the text, depending on what is needed.

When our linguists here at Novoterm work on a text, we ensure that it is cohesive at all levels and that it is optimised for the intended context. Our service at this level includes adaptation for a specific target group or culture, and checking for consistency with company-specific terminology.

Naturally, proofreading (the first level) is included in this service.

Fees

Fees for our text editing and proofreading services

The cost of our language editing services depends on the nature and basic quality of the draft text, as well as how long the editing process takes. Our translators and language editors/proofreaders are used to proofreading and can often therefore quickly get a sense of how long it will take to edit, improve or proofread an original or translated text.
