Difference: editing & proofreading

Did you know?

The Difference Between Editing and Proofreading

While often used interchangeably, editing and proofreading are actually different tasks!

Editing involves comparing the translation to the source text and fixing any errors made be the original translator.
It may also include fact-checking and rearranging paragraphs to improve readability.

*Proofreading is a final check to fix minor errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting.
It can be done without the source text, which is why it is usually charged per English word rather than per Japanese source character.

Convert recorded audio into written form, either with or without timestamps. Choose if you'd like the transcription to be word-for-word, or if you'd like things like filler words, stutters, and self corrections omitted for readability. Transcription of Japanese audio is available through my partner company, Very Best Language Solutions.

Diligently arranged subtitles that accurately convey the message and intent while ensuring comfortable viewing by your audience. ​ For Japanese audio, a transcription provided by a native Japanese speaker is required. Please note that I may ask my partner company, Very Best Language Solutions, to provide this.

A combination of the words "translation" and "creation", transcreation is a mix of translation, creativity, and copywriting.  Perfect for when merely translating the words just won't have the desired effect on your intended audience! Perfect candidates for transcreation include:​​ - Advertising & Marketing - Video games - Literature - Film and TV

Reassurance that your texts are perfect. ​ Have your texts thoroughly checked to confirm that all instructions and guidelines have been adhered to, terminology and wording is consistent and correct, and that there are no linguistic, formatting, or other errors or issues, such as broken hyperlinks. My superior knowledge of grammar and punctuation, eagle eye for detail, and desire for perfectionism will ensure your text has achieved perfection!

Have a text that's been translated by AI or a machine? Make sure to have it edited by a human translator who understands the language, culture, and significance of your text, and can take your target audience into account. Don't use texts that are full of mistranslations, grammatical errors, and stilted, robotic wording that will drive customers away.
