Editing

Spelling, punctuation, grammar, hyphenation, readability, and writing style — precise editing of German texts, for example:

  • brochures, flyer, advertising texts
  • technical documentation, user manuals
  • concept papers, exposés
  • websites, presentations
  • newsletters, blog entries, press releases
  • manuscripts for technical literature as well as fiction and non-fiction
  • bachelor thesis, master thesis, diploma thesis, and dissertation

 

Simple or extended 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 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.

 

 

Procedure

 

Please send your documents to be checked (for example as .doc, .pdf, or printed). In the case of Word files, all corrections will be made using the "Track changes" option. This allows you to localize and understand all corrections and comments at all times. You can accept all changes or reject single ones.

 

If this work is too time-consuming for you: don't worry — a finished file with all changes included will also be given to you. You can use this document right away.

 

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.

 

Printed documents are revised according to DIN 16511.
