Editing and proofreading for books, texts, digital and audio-visual material.

Specialised in didactic material for language acquisition as well as scientific texts.

  • Proofreading includes the revision of orthography, grammar, punctuation and typography.
  • In addition to proofreading, editing further includes a stylistic and linguistic revision. The goal is a more fluent language and a coherent text. The layout is also standardised and improved.
  • In the case of audio-visual material, attention is also paid to clarity and pronunciation.

Translation means
  • grammatical and content quality
  • to correctly transfer lexical, semantic and cultural characteristics into the target language, taking into account country-specific language peculiarities
  • convey culture, history and customs of the language areas.

Text formats used are Word and PDF, as well as in the layout and typesetting program Adobe InDesign. I use track changes and comments so you can follow all the changes.
