Proofreading, revision or editing? What’s the difference?
Proofreading, revision and editing—they sound like the same thing, so what exactly is the difference, and how do you choose the right service for your project? With our checklist and definitions below, you can easily identify which of our services is the right one for your intended purposes.
Any kind of document in any language can be proofread, whether or not the text is a translation. As opposed to revision, where two texts in two different languages are compared, proofreading is a monolingual check of a text, concentrating on correct spelling and grammar. Experienced proofreaders working in their mother tongue will review your text and correct it as necessary. Proofreading is an effective way to remedy simple errors.

Revision is an effective way to get the best out of your translations and texts. An experienced professional translator will correct spelling and grammar errors and make stylistic improvements to your text. For example, once your initial translation has been prepared, an expert linguist specializing in your particular industry will compare your source text with the target text (the finished translation) and improve the translation output. This process is therefore also referred to as a bilingual review. In addition to all the aspects involved in proofreading, such as checking punctuation and grammar, revision improves style and consistency.
