Proofreading and edition are two essential stages for any type of text to fulfill the author’s aims and purposes. YoTeLoTraduzco offers these services to satisfy our clients ‘needs.
Once we receive a text, the first stage to keep in mind is the proofreading of the text, since it is a fundamental stage before text edition. The purpose of proofreading a text is to improve it, and in order to do so, we must evaluate it first. We need to know if the text achieves the aims proposed by its author. That is to say, is the text suitable for its situation, aim and addresser? Is the text coherent? Is the text expressed properly? Does the text have an appropriate style? Does the text have any grammatical or spelling mistakes? In this stage, we also proceed to compare the text to the original to avoid potential mistakes, as the ones made when translating cultural elements.
Once we have evaluated the text, we move to the second stage, text correction and edition. The purpose of this stage is the correction of possible mistakes committed by the author in order to make the text more correct. These mistakes can be due to wrong expression, punctuation, or spelling. In this stage, we also proceed to correct the potential cultural problems the translator can interpret wrongly and which have been identified previously in the evaluation stage. Edition services are more intensive and require a deep analysis of the source and target text.
These two stages are essential before the publication of any work or project. YoTeLoTraduzco strongly advise you the proofreading and edition of a document before being published. It is indispensable for you to be completely sure about the reliability of a text before publishing it. Any kind of error may cause you additional expenses. You will have to cover again expenses for impression, publication, and redistribution, and this could damage your corporative image and it would be a waste of time.
During this proofreading and edition stage, the client will be always informed about any changes made to the original text. YoTeLoTraduzco guarantees a personalized service always taking into account our clients ‘needs.
