My Italian proofreading services.
I have been proofreading for 20 years:
- from English to Italian
- from Spanish to Italian
- from German to Italian.
I have been asked to proofread mainly by translation agencies located all over the world, which wanted to check up the quality of their translation.
Which are the benefits of a quality proofreading?
Through my proofreading service you can be sure that:
- the translation is free from spelling errors and grammatical mistakes,
- the whole text is written with the same style and vocabulary.
Besides the proofreading service allows to check that:
- all the source text has been translated
- and the translation sounds good to the Italian reader/user.
Two different proofreading services.
Depending on the quality of the translation, the proofreading process may be more or less difficult and time consuming.
- Some translations just need some basic proofreading: a first level of revising service, which includes proofing for spelling mistakes and typos, punctuation problems and awkard grammar.
- Some translations instead require a deeper proofreading process – the so called deep editing/rewriting service – which implies lexicon and syntax changes throughout the text and more or less extensive rewriting of the content.
This advanced proofreading service improves the translation until it sounds natural and is immediately understood by its audience.
This aim is pursued by:
- checking if the word choice sounds appropriate to the context,
- replacing a word which recurs too often with a sinonym,
- changing the word sequence in case it does not sound good.
- Afterwards there is a word after word check, in order to make sure that the source text has been entirely translated and none of its words is accidentally missing in the translation.
The deep editing and rewriting service implies to check both the source and the target language. Therefore the translation goes through a double revising process, which takes much more time than the first kind of service, i.e. the basic proofreading.
This affects the price of the proofreading service. The price of the service depends on the quality of the translation and on the kind of revising service required. As well as on the lenght of the text to proofread and from the urgency of the job.
