The perfect finish: editing and proofreading

Spelling and grammar are not everyone’s passion, nor is everyone born with the gift of writing perfectly formulated texts. Our proofreaders and editors have the ability to straighten what’s crooked, simplify the overly complex, and correct what’s wrong. Proofreading and editing from Apostroph transforms previously clunky texts into ones that are not only legible, but a delight to read.

  • Reliable checking and correcting right down to the smallest detail
  • Style-perfected and polished editing to enhance and refresh existing texts
  • Adaptation of texts to the target group and intended use

The error detectives are at work in our proofreading department

Our proofreaders have a real passion for spotting hidden errors. Armed with their virtual red pen, they enjoy nothing better than to enhance copy of any kind by correcting mistakes. This service is suitable when you have stylistically correct content that needs to be proofread for mistakes.

 Proofreading by Apostroph

Semantic fine-tuning by our German and English departments

Apostroph proofreads everything from technical documentation and websites to image brochures. Our experienced and skilled editors can iron out clumsy formulations, giving outdated content and translations a fresh and contemporary linguistic makeover.

What is the difference between proofreading and editing?

Even a text that has been proofread can still contain errors, for instance skewed imagery or missing content. The level of work put into a document can be adjusted depending on the requirements of a given text.

Any questions?

In comparative proofreading, a second professional native speaker checks grammar, spelling, hyphenation, punctuation and style. In addition, the translation is compared with the original text and adapted where necessary.

Desktop publishing (DTP) refers to the professional graphic editing of a document (layout). The end result is the creation of print-ready templates. We particularly recommend DTP for languages that do not use Latin characters such as Arabic, Thai and Chinese. We check that the texts are in the right place, that all characters are displayed correctly and that the hyphenation and reading direction are correct.
