When a translation is to be proofread, it is only looked over with regard to grammar, spelling and typography. This means that it is checked whether everything is spelled correctly, that punctuation marks are set correctly and that characters such as inverted commas or hyphens have been used correctly. The consistency of the text is also checked here. The content of the text is not changed, the proofreading is limited to the external form of the text.
A proofreading always includes a proofreading. In a proofreading, the above is checked and subsequently the text is also checked for content, language and style. The text should be fluent, readable and easy to understand. Editing is therefore much more time-consuming than proofreading.
We offer proofreading for English translations, but also for many other languages.
Translation editing of your machine pre-translation (deepL, Translate, or similar)
You've probably noticed that machine translations are often not perfect. But did you also know that it's often hard to spot all the mistakes when you don't know the target language perfectly?
That's why Die Sprachprofis offer a proofreading service for machine-translated texts!
