Our professional updating and optimising services entail sentence-by-sentence comparison of the source text with the target text. We make all necessary adjustments directly in the text to ensure that the translation reflects the original in terms of language, form and content.

Traditional proofreading

  • German, French, Italian and English
  • Spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Essential corrections
  • Typography

Traditional proofreading does not entail any stylistic or content-related corrections. The text is reviewed for spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. We also make sure that official titles and product names are spelled correctly and double-check the typography.

Copyediting

  • Spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Comprehensive review
  • Language, content, style, coherence

Copyediting involves meticulously reviewing a text in terms of language, content and style. Is the text type suitable for the target group? Is the purpose of the text clear? Does the text flow well and is it coherent? Is the choice of words accurate and appropriate? We comment and optimise where appropriate.

Notarisation

If you have any administrative documents that require a notarised translation, such as extracts from the commercial register or articles of association, we obtain the certification from a notary on your behalf.
