Proofreading & Copy-editing

„The final touch for your text.“

Mistakes happen – however, a poorly worded text which contains too many mistakes makes a very unprofessional impression, fails to serve its purpose and, in the worst case, may deter potential customers or readers. Do not be content with second best solutions. I will proofread and optimize your German text, so that it is accurate, reads well and suits the intended readership.

  • Internal and external corporate communication
  • All types of text

Proofreading …

includes spelling, grammar, punctuation and minor style corrections. For pre-formatted texts, I can check syllabication too. I use Duden as the basis for German spelling. Terminology is standardized according to your corporate language.

Copy-editing …
goes further. To make sure that readers get your message, I not only look at spelling, grammar and punctuation, but also check the style, the structure and the logical plot of your text. A final layout check rounds off this package.

I correct errors so that you can track all the changes I have made in your text:

  • on WORD (using „Tracked changes“)
  • on PDF (using „Comment“)
  • on paper with standard correction marks
  • in CMS
