Polishing your texts with our proofreading and editing service.

We can proofread and edit your texts, ensuring the grammar and structure are polished and the terminology is consistent.

While proofreading involves checking spelling and grammar, editing  includes a stylistic and a linguistic review and revision of your text.

We will be happy to help. Highly qualified linguists with an eye for detail will make sure that the grammar and style of your texts are as good as they can possibly be and guaranteed to impress your readers.

Editing services

In addition to proofreading, editing involves checking your text for:

    • consistent terminology

We will rewrite any passages that are difficult to understand, and edit out repetition and filler words. Cohesive devices will be added if necessary, and paragraph order may be changed to improve understanding. We will also ensure that you have used the most appropriate terminology and wording, taking into account the intended register and tone of your text.

Our proofreading and editing services are available in the following languages:

  • English
  • German

As with our translations, we apply the “four-eyes” principle when working on your text.

We have been editing technical texts for a financial institution in Zurich, academic dissertations and papers as well as scientific papers, art brochures and catalogues for many years and in many languages. Our academically-trained, mother-tongue editors have a wealth of professional experience in proofreading and editing. Your finished text will be error-free and ready for publication.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Print-ready copy

If you want complete peace of mind and would rather an expert “sign off” your copy, we will be happy to check your text to make sure it is print-ready.  As with proofreading, we make sure that two checkers work on the text, one after the other (“four-eyes” principle). You can rest assured that no mistakes will be overlooked and that your document will impress your readers.
