Simple or extensive editing? What is the difference?

Simple editing


The simple editing process checks your document with respect to spelling and typos as well as correct orthography and grammar in particular. Names and titles as well as art terms can also be considered. Unlike extensive editing, linguistic and writing style improvements are not part of the simple editing. All changes are made according to the latest edition of the Duden. 



Extensive editing


Extensive editing includes all revisions of simple editing. Furthermore, your text will be checked for readability, suitability for the target audience, syntax and language use. The result will be a linguistic and writing style improvement that may include the shortening or revision of long and hard to understand text parts. If desired, your text can also be checked for accurate lexis, e.g. technical terms. Simple editing is included in the price.

How can I order proofreading services?

In the case of pdf files, all parts of the text that need to be corrected are marked and all proposals for modification are listed on the right side of the document using the comment function.
