Professional Translation Proofreading and Editing Service
Translation editing is the process of reviewing the translated text and making necessary improvements. These changes can be correcting sentence structure, fixing grammar mistakes, or rewriting paragraphs. Editors ensure accurate translations by checking for vocabulary inconsistencies, linguistic errors, and correct word choices and syntax.
Translation Proofreading corrects any grammatical errors or typos that may have slipped in during translation. Proofreaders improve readability and create a logical flow of information. They also review the formatting and layouts of the final draft.
Editors and proofreaders work together to ensure that the translated content retains the message of the original text. They deliver a final product that is clear, cohesive, and ready for distribution.
Goodman Lantern offers professional Translation Proofreading and Editing Services. Suppose you need authentic, high-quality translations to expand your business to a new country or work with international clients. In that case, our meticulous translators, editors, and proofreaders are here to help.
Importance of Translation Proofreading and Editing Service
Proofreading and Editing are vital steps for quality assurance. There can be several potential missteps while translating the text into another language – from forgetting to use the correct terms to using the wrong currency symbols.
Translation Proofreading and Editing is a holistic process that checks for factual accuracy, linguistic correctness, and cultural context. It involves adjusting the tone and style of the content to meet the expectations of your target audience while still staying true to your brand’s voice.
Slight changes in the content can cause the meaning to shift. If your target audience does not receive the right message, it could negatively affect their perception of your brand and products.
Proofreading ensures that the translation is fluent and easy to read. This ensures that your target audience has a thorough understanding of your content. This step accounts for local dialects and connotations, thereby ensuring that your content is localised to the dialect of your customers.
Why Does Your Content Need Translation and Proofreading?
Translation and Proofreading allow businesses to communicate effectively with customers outside of their primary customer base. Any company looking to expand to a new country or engage a global audience can benefit significantly.
With advanced software, some programs carry out automated translations. While this may have a faster turnaround time, programs are prone to mistranslations and semantic errors. They also cannot carry out fool-proof content localisation.
In these cases, translation editing and proofreading is done by a human translator as a necessary step. We pick up on any mistakes made by machine translations and ensure that the content is tailored for the new regional market. This saves your business the cost of fixing errors later on.
Our professional translators have a deep understanding of the nuances in many different local languages. They produce culturally sensitive and linguistically accurate content that helps you build brand awareness, connect with regional audiences, and increase sales and revenue.
List of Translation Proofreading & Editing Services

Missing Translation or Omission
Our proofreading and editing services identify any words missed in translations so that your complete message is communicated and has the desired effect on your audience.
Sometimes translations have mistakes due to machine or human error. Perhaps a translator misinterpreted a sentence, or a translating program misread a homograph. We look out for such errors and fix them before you distribute the content.

International Date, Number, and Currency Format
Different languages have different formats of writing dates, times, numbers, and currencies. We align such elements with the widely accepted format in the target country.
Direct translations change the way a text reads from the original language. By proofreading and editing, we ensure that the readability of the content is not changed.
Depending on the region, there can be critical differences in dialects and linguistic styles within a language. We optimise the linguistic style in your content based on your target regional audience for maximum impact.

Legal translations are filled with complexity, nuance, and legal jargon. Even the smallest changes can change the meaning of the legal document, which can have profound implications.
