What we have to offer: Finding mistakes, improving style, creating individuality
Proofreading - a good basis to start
Good writing skills, correct grammar, appropriate punctuation and a certain continuity in style are expected not just by demanding readers.
In a nutshell: The most beautiful villa is worthless without a solid foundation.
Copy editing - looking for the perfect words
Once the basic work has been done, our stylistic editing services will fine-tune your text. Clarity, logical structure and coherence are carefully examined.
Of course, we can also optimize your text to meet special requirements, like for a targeted readership or a particular medium (e.g. print, web or social media). Our SEO copy editing service improves the accessibility of your writing for search engines.
Substantive editing, galley proof - finishing your text
Before you use or publish your text, we can fine-tune each single letter by providing you with substantive editing and layout improvement services:
An authentic writing style as well as a corresponding layout are both essential for your text to leave a lasting impression. Especially in case of business documents or quality printed matter, the key to success is a good harmony between form and content.
It's your choice: Basic proofreading or full text revision
You decide, which elements of your text you want to get improved. We can just fix basic spelling mistakes or provide you with a linguistic high-gloss polish meeting the expectations of your target audience - a wide range of text revision services is available from us.
Orthographic and stylistic rules - you decide what is right!
By default, we follow any generally accepted rules of the American or British English language (spelling, grammar, style). In case of commercial documents, we follow the common teminology as used in the European area.
If you prefer to use your own orthographic ruleset, special spellings or other custom regulations, we also consider these.
Example: During the planning phase of this website, a special style guide was developed that also includes some custom orthographic and stylistic rules intended to improve the site's readability, SEO and technical optimization.
