Proofreading for Marketing & PR firms

Today’s marketing is both intense and competitive. The ‘shop window’ of marketing companies is the literature that such companies produce, most of which is now online. 

If you run a marketing company, of course you know that it is essential that you produce good and effective material for your clients.

We are aware that you have the expertise to advise your clients on marketing and public relations matters and to produce material.

But how can we help with our proofreading and editing? 

The material you produce for your clients may be read by thousands or even millions of people in all parts of the world. It is therefore worth hiring a professional proofreader, if you do not have an in-house one, for a number of reasons. 

1: Unintentional errors can easily creep into the best prepared documents. At best they can look unprofessional and at worst they can lead to confusion in meaning and possibly reduce the chances of the effectiveness of the client’s marketing policy. 

2: Although you may consider that you do not need a proofreader and that you are perfectly capable of proofreading your own document, it is a known fact that it takes another person to look at a document to recognise errors that the author may not notice. The proofreader sees the document as a potential business client sees it. 

3: The marketing field is multinational, so the English needs to be plain and clear, such as will be easily understood not only by native English speakers but also by those who have learnt the language. We can help with this.  

Your clients have a wonderful opportunity to spread their message ‘globally’; therefore, we think it is well worth investing in affordable proofreading services to allow that ‘second pair of eyes’ to read through the document which we believe can help your clients in this very competitive environment.

Proofreading for law firms

As a legal practice, you must be utterly keen to get every single word in your legal documents and paperwork right. Language errors can, understandably, make a huge difference, and indeed great trouble, in any document, particularly legal manuscripts.

Therefore, how can we help you with our proofreading services? 

Our experienced proofreaders and copy-editors are aware of the importance of accuracy precision and we also know the importance of consistency within a document.

Furthermore, we recognise the importance of accuracy at all times in legal documents. We also realise the importance of punctuation. Whereas in society generally, punctuation is often ignored, we share your understanding that in legal text, correct punctuation is vital.

As you know, even a missing comma, a comma in the wrong place or a misplaced apostrophe can change the entire meaning of a sentence.  

We offer a proofreading service of carefully checking your document for spelling, grammar and punctuation. We also check for accuracy and consistency. If you are writing a document which will be read by others in the legal profession, then we are aware that they will understand any legal jargon.

However, if you are writing a document to be read by the general public, we realise that they may not understand many legal terms, so this increases the need for clear and understandable English. This is especially true if you are writing for someone whose first language is not English.

Maybe you are too busy to check your own documents for matters such as those aforementioned, so this is where our experienced and specialist proofreaders and editors can help. We know that lawyers produce very professional documents, but do not let unintentional errors find their way into your documents. These may be small errors, but as we explained, they can change the entire meaning. Our services are very fairly priced and are completed with fast turnaround times.

Proofreading for translation companies

Although we do not offer translation services, we are able to help translation companies in that we can professionally proofread and copy-edit text which has been translated into English from another language.

As a translation service provider you may be thinking, ‘Why should there be a need to submit a piece of work for proofreading or copy-editing when we have translated it accurately and clearly?’ We do not, of course, call into question the accuracy and clarity of the translations, and we certainly respect the professionalism of translation companies.

Nevertheless, it is true that any text, whether it be original or translated always benefits from being proofread. It is a known fact that when someone reads his or her own original work or translated have translated, what that person actually ‘sees’ is what is in his or her mind, and not what is printed on the page.

Furthermore, a translation company may well ask us ‘How can you proofread a translated document when you have not seen it in the original language?’  Our reply would be that we are not checking the translation, but we are checking the English text as it stands alone.

There are many benefits in using our proofreading services for professional translators. These include:

(1)   Our proofreaders see the document as the intended reader sees it because we are reading it for the first time. Although it has been translated, we see it as though it was originally written in English.  

(2)   However well a document has been translated and however clear the English may be, it is always wise to have a second pair of eyes to look through it. Therefore, the proofreader may find some text that ‘doesn’t look quite look right’, although it has been translated accurately.

(3)   We can also check the translated document for a consistent style. We believe this to be a good idea, particularly where idioms in another language have been translated into English.
