Editing and Proofreading

Despite these two terms often being used interchangeably, they actually refer to two different services.

 

Editing

Your text will be carefully checked against the source text for terminology errors, inaccuracies and inconsistencies. I will make proactive suggestions for changes that can improve the overall quality of the target text. Fluency and readability will be improved, ensuring a natural flow of the language, a cultural appropriateness and maximum impact on the target audience.

 

Proofreading

Your text is already terminologically correct and culturally appropriate, it has a good flow and style, but it needs to be checked for grammar, spelling, punctuation, typing and formatting mistakes and inconsistencies. It's a lighter review to ensure a publication-ready document.

You are unique and the same goes for every project that you need me to work on. 

The price for editing and proofreading services is billed by the hour. 

Editing + proofreading services start at 32 EUR/hour or 45 CAD/hour.

Proofreading services start at 25 EUR/hour or 35 CAD/hour

However, prices may vary depending on different factors, such as subject matter, format, quality of the text and so forth.

You don't need to worry! Just shoot me an email and I will draft a free non-binding quote tailored to your needs.

My language combinations:

I edit and proofread texts in Italian translated from:

If your text was written in Italian, but needs some revision and reworking, don't be shy and contact me! I have been revising my friends and siblings' assignments since 5th grade, I know a thing or two 😉

Not the languages you were looking for? Fear not! Write me what you need and I will be happy to refer you to the right person in my network!
