Text con­trols the appearan­ce of high-qua­­li­­ty pro­ducts and cam­pai­gns. Proofrea­ding for me not only means to cor­rect text for errors but also for­mal­ly check it carefuly.


Chan­ges done in the con­text of a proofrea­ding order are iden­ti­fied as such wit­hin the cor­rec­ted documents.

For Micro­soft Office and Open­Of­fice docu­ments this is done by the so-cal­­led tracking mode. Proofrea­ding chan­ges will be high­ligh­ted in color and in com­ment form, which chan­ges were made as a correction.

Proofrea­ding chan­ges cor­rect spel­ling, punc­tua­ti­on and grammar. It might not be con­fu­sed with edi­to­ri­al work which inclu­des all the tasks of the proofrea­ding. Howe­ver, edi­to­ri­al work always invol­ves a sty­listic impro­ve­ment in terms of con­tent and is thus more labor-inten­­si­­ve com­pa­red to a mere cor­rec­tion work.

I am thought­ful­ly che­cking your text trans­la­ti­on for grammar, spel­ling, punc­tua­ti­on and hyphe­n­a­ti­on. Proofrea­ding of text com­pri­ses, in con­trast to the edi­to­ri­al, only the pro­ces­sing of ortho­gra­phic, gram­ma­ti­cal and syn­ta­c­tic (punc­tua­ti­on and sen­tence con­struc­tion) errors without chan­ges in content.

In the ana­ly­sis of texts if so desi­red by you I strict­ly stick to your spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons. No mat­ter whe­ther you have spe­ci­fic cor­po­ra­te iden­ti­ty gui­de­li­nes or design requi­re­ments for sci­en­ti­fic texts. In addi­ti­on I will give you infor­ma­ti­on about pro­blems and abnor­ma­li­ties that occur repeated­ly in your text.

For proofrea­ding jobs I work with stan­dard office pro­grams with the cor­rec­tions being made direct­ly wit­hin the ori­gi­nal text file. The cor­rec­tions will be made visi­ble and trace­ab­le to the cus­to­mer, if tech­ni­cal­ly pos­si­ble, in buil­tin fol­­low-up mode and pro­vi­ded with a com­men­ta­ry for explanation.


Cor­rec­tions in PDF docu­ments are done using the soft­ware Mas­ter PDF Edi­tor. A simi­lar tracking mode com­pa­red to Micro­soft Office or Open­Of­fice docu­ments is achie­ved by anno­ta­ting changes.

Howe­ver, this is only pos­si­ble for PDF text seg­ments. For embed­ded objects such as images, such edi­t­ing is not possible.

The capa­bi­li­ties of the PDF Edi­tor soft­ware are not iden­ti­cal to tho­se of stan­dard office pro­grams such as Micro­soft Office or OpenOffice.

Thus, the edi­t­ing of PDF docu­ments such as the adjus­t­ments of para­graph design or chan­ges to the docu­ment lay­out is limi­ted. The­re­fo­re, the cor­rec­tion done by using stan­dard word pro­ces­sors is gene­ral­ly pre­fera­ble to tho­se of PDF docu­ments using PDF Editor.


The file for­mats on the right side can be pro­ces­sed by us for orders or con­ver­ted by us into a sui­ta­ble for­mat we can work on. Plea­se con­ta­ct us if you are using any other for­mat for your text:
Stan­dard text file with exten­si­on txt in uni­code cha­rac­ter set format.
Micro­soft file up to Office 2003 with exten­si­on doc, xls or ppt (Word, Excel or PowerPoint).
Ado­be Por­ta­ble Docu­ment For­mat (PDF) file with exten­si­on pdf.
Open­Of­fice file ending with odt, ods or odp (Wri­ter, Calc or Impress).
Micro­soft Office 2007 file with exten­si­on docx, xlsx or pptx (Word, Excel or PowerPoint).
Plea­se con­ta­ct us if your text is stored in files using other file formats.


To cal­cu­la­te the cost of proofrea­ding the word count of the text is used. This amount of words is deter­mi­ned using the soft­ware Ome­gaT and then mul­ti­plied by the word pri­ce 0.03 Euro for proofrea­ding which gives as a result the pri­ce for the proofrea­ding of the text.

If a word count deter­mi­na­ti­on by Ome­gaT is not pos­si­ble, the word count is cal­cu­la­ted by other soft­ware pro­grams or deter­mi­ned as an estimate.
