When writing in your native tongue or in a second language, you’ll always benefit from an expert combing through your text. Because no matter how often you re-read your work, one or two errors are bound to slip through the net. The concept is simple: two pairs of eyes are better than one, which is known as the ‘four-eye principle’ in the language industry.
Four-eyes are better than two
Our professional proofreaders can be those extra two eyes in over 175 languages. They remove spelling, punctuation and grammar mistakes from your work and provide you with a document where changes are tracked for you to review. This means that the rest of your team can focus on their core roles, avoiding the time-intensive task of proofreading.
Add proofreading to an automated workflow
Proofreading is an often-neglected part of the content creation process. But in LanguageWire’s cloud-based collaboration platform, you are able to automate your workflows, minimising the effects on time-to-publish. You’ll collaborate with our professional proofreaders in real-time, increasing the quality and efficiency of your process even further.
Proofreading vs proofreading of translation
There is a difference between a proofreading of translation and a normal proofread. The standard proofreader looks at the text in one language, whereas the source text is also considered for a proofreading of translation. Another important distinction is that it’s not normally the role of a proofreader to make suggestions on clarity or tone of voice. For a more thorough check of your content, you’ll want to turn to a text editor.
The all-important brief
In order to get the best from a proofreader, you should provide all relevant reference material. This could be a style guide, official texts, approved translations, or termbase. The better an indication your proofreaders have of what you require, the more likely they are to meet your expectations.
