A translation company?

When a text is translated from one language into another, the meaning can sometimes get lost, and literal translation can also make its into the translated text which effectively renders it incomprehensible to the readers.

Here our professional native English proofreaders and editors will be correct, adjust and improve the translated text so that it is idiomatic, intelligible and understandable to the intended readers who are native English speakers.

4. Professionals/individuals

In a world teeming with fierce competition, CVs, personal statements and cover letters can simply make or break, when it comes to job hunting.

They are the first thing that companies and businesses looking to recruit new staff set their eyes on, with a particular focus on how the applicants present themselves and showcase their knowledge and their experience. A badly written CV or cover letter with language errors certainly would not reflect good on you and would most likely switch potential employers off.

By contrast, a well-written CV, closely and tightly proofread and edited, will most likely make a big difference by creating a positive impact on potential employers. You may have the longest experience and most unique set of skills and qualities, but that may not guarantee you being shortlisted for an interview, if your CV and cover letter are poorly written or have embarrassing typos or punctuation or grammatical mistakes.

Therefore, it is really crucial to have your CV, personal statement and cover letter professionally edited and proofread. Here we come in with our CV proofreading services, which will help make your CV and cover letter shine through. We also proofread and edit business letters, reports, emails and many other forms of writing. If you have a sample and want to test our proofreading or editing services, why not send it us today? It is free, with no obligation whatsoever.
