Proofreading/Editing of Translations
Does a good translation require proofreading or editing?
Every person, even the most experienced writer or translator may not notice things that require modification to improve the final quality of the material. An independent perspective from another person is always invaluable. That is why proofreading and editing are integral parts of each publishing process. They are also necessary if the translated copy is to be made public or distributed to a wide audience (in print or online media, on a website).
Translation editing or proofreading?
Proofreading is usually done by a native speaker – a person who speaks the target language as his or her first tongue. Proofreaders check the translation for spelling, grammar or punctuation errors.
Editors check the translation for possible mistranslations and style flaws. They can amend grammar, malapropism, style, syntax and logical errors or mistakes in translation. If necessary, they can rephrase sentences to improve the flow of the text. Editors check also the correct use of the terminology as well as dates, spelling of names, formulas and quotes.
