Besides our main activity, translation, we provide editing and proofreading services for documents translated by other people. It makes no difference if the documents have been translated by another agency or by your in-house staff. Our editors will ensure that your documents are a 100% match of the original documents. In addition, our native expert proofreaders, each of them with their specific specialities, can proofread your documents in order to make sure they suit the target audience.
Proofreading and editing are some of the most important tasks when it comes to finishing your documents. This is why we believe in a normative linguistic model, so that the resulting text is grammatically perfect and provides a professional and rigorous view of your company.The different types of proofreading we provide are:
Orthotypographical proofreading. It is the purest from of proofreading, focused on amending the orthographic or the typographic mistakes in any kind of text.

Proofreading galley proofs and first, second and third tests. This form of proofreading is generally performed by the author or an editor on printing tests via notes in the margin with conventional signs.
