Editing & Proofreading

Editing a text means taking a draft (an original or, in my case, usually a translation) and polishing it into a finished piece, possibly by altering even fundamental things such as structure and style. Proofreading, on the other hand, means taking an almost ready-to-go text, and making sure its punctuation, grammar, spelling, and all those other nitpicky bits are fine and good to deliver. On the basis of this difference, editing can usually take more time and costs more, while proofreading is often faster and cheaper – as long as the content is of a good quality that lets the proofreader proofread, rather than edit.

If you have something that you would like me to edit or proofread, please feel free to get in touch with me. Otherwise, you could go back and see my services, or go ahead and view my experience.
