Make sure that your texts work in their entirety and in their context, are grammatically and idiomatically correct and adapted to your target group.
Proofreading involves reviewing a text at the surface 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 miss a spelling mistake or an 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 catch 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 rest assured 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 fix syntax errors, punctuation mistakes or any idiomatic issues.
Language editing delves down to a deeper level. It is a more demanding task and often involves both re-writing 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.
The price of this service depends on the nature and basic quality of the text, as well as how much time the 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.
