Proofreading involves checking the linguistic aspects of a text. This is a service we provide for documents in every possible language. Once we proofread your text, we can guarantee that the result will be top-notch.
Our proofreaders are linguistic experts with a professional background in the language of your text. They will read and check your texts precisely, so that even the smallest mistakes are corrected. During the proofreading, we check:
You can choose between proofreading and a complete revision when evaluating a translated text. The only difference between these two options is whether or not the translation will be compared to the original source text. When proofreading a translation, the document is evaluated as an individual text. On the other hand, when a translation is being revised, it is compared to the source text. This is how we correct possible mistranslations.
Proofreading a text can be useful when you would like to know for sure that your text meets the highest linguistic demands. A second pair of eyes can see what the writer has possibly overlooked, and can boost your text by recommending other phrasings to achieve linguistic perfection.
Since good proofreading is a real profession, LinQuake only collaborates with professionals. Whether you would like to have your text translated, proofread or revised, every linguist must meet at least one of the following requirements:
Moreover, we continuously monitor the quality of all the work delivered by our translators, proofreaders and revisers.
Collaborations and feedback are essential to a good service. That is why we like to initiate long-term collaborations with our clients. We can then get to know you closely, and act as a natural extension of your organisation.
By proofreading your texts, we can start to put this collaboration into practice. We will keep a record of the changes we make and save these in a style guide and in glossaries. By doing this, we can document what we have learned and prevent the same mistakes. We also get to know your preferences, which we can then apply to new projects.
