Let’s say you wrote or translated a text. Ready to use this text? Of course you are not! Now is the time to edit and proofread that text! But is there a difference between editing and proofreading? Not for many people! Unfortunately they are wrong!


Editing first, then proofreading

Do you think proofreading is the same as editing a text that has been written or translated into another language? So you are wrong. Although many people use these two terms interchangeably, text editing and proofreading are two distinct stages of the revision process. Both require close and careful reading, but they focus on different aspects of writing and use other types of techniques.

Editing is what you start doing as soon as you finish your first draft. For example, you reread your draft to see if an article is well-organized, smooth transitions between paragraphs, and consistency across the article. Proofreading is a process that focuses on more superficial points such as typos, grammar and punctuation errors, and is the final stage of the text editing process. Therefore, proofreading should be made only after all other edits have been completed.



With our professional team in more than 50 languages, we have helped many of our business partners for these two stages, which are often confused. We provided both editing and proofreading services in many text types, from astrology texts to news translations, from product catalogs to bestsellers, and achieved extremely successful results. If you believe that both the content and the format of a text are important, you are at the right place! Remember, the devil is in the details!
