EDITING & PROOFREADING
Editing by a second professional translator is considered industry standard for any high-quality translation.
For professionals and academics in the environmental and agricultural industry, Martina offers a top-tier editing service to deliver professionalism and consistency of English materials translated to German. Martina checks the German translation against the source text to ensure the original translator used an appropriate style, found the right balance between conveying the precise meaning and providing an easy to read translation, and took the time to research specialized terminology. If during the editing process she discovers that the translation is inconsistent, she may recommend considering it a translation project.
After reviewing the source and target material, Martina will provide a quote for editing or proofreading.
