Proofreading and editing

When a text is proofread, it is checked for typographical, spelling and grammatical errors. When a text is edited, it is also checked for style and coherence.

If you have a German text for publication, I can gladly review it for typographical, spelling and grammatical errors. And I can also edit it if need be.

Generally, I only edit German texts. If you have a French or English text for proofreading, I can pass it on to a qualified native speaker.

Why is proofreading so important?
- The Microsoft Word spell checker does not recognize context and so does not detect all errors
- Too many errors can negatively affect the grade of a bachelor thesis, master thesis, diploma thesis, etc.
- A flawless cover letter increases the chances of getting a job
- Errors can be detrimental, causing companies to lose customers and revenue
- Correct spelling reflects the integrity of a newspaper publishing company, etc.
- Products are easier to sell if accompanied by an accurate description

Among others, I proofread the following types of text:

  • Seminar papers, bachelor theses, master theses, diploma theses, final projects and doctoral dissertations
  • Cover letters
  • Websites
  • Press and specialist articles
  • Flyers
  • Brochures
  • Advertisements
