Professional Text Revision

As a revision and editing office, we specialise in professional text revision. From simple spell checking to extensive developmental editing, we offer all services related to the optimisation of your text. And in over 90 languages, too.

Since everyone has something different in mind when they hear the term revision, we present below a few types of proof-reading and optimisation as we understand and offer them. Combinations are also possible, of course, as well as every other type of text editing according to your particular requirements.

Basic Forms

We distinguish between the following basic forms of revision:

  • In simple proof-reading we correct grammar, punctuation and spelling. More >>
  • Final editing or galley editing involves layout and hyphenation corrections in addition to proof-reading, and is usually done immediately before the publication of a text.
  • Copyediting: Here we are concerned with style and diction. We also often give tips for improving the structure and logic of the text. More >>
  • Substantive editing: This is a type of intensified copyediting, in which we may make larger optimisation improvements in the text. More >>

Special Forms

In addition to the basic forms mentioned above, our proof-reading office can also offer you a large number of special forms of revision:

  • Scientific copyediting: This form of copyediting is specifically concerned with academic texts and the rules of scientific writing, including the handling of sources. More >>
  • Technical copyediting: Here a specialist copyeditor or developmental editor reviews the text and checks for factual and technical accuracy and credibility.
  • Advertisement copyediting: Here the focus is on the special requirements of advertising texts.
  • Literary copyediting: Poems, novels and short stories operate according to their own rules. Accordingly, we also have specialist copyeditors for the literary field.
  • Translation copyediting: When it’s a matter of optimising a translation, it usually doesn’t hurt to compare against the original in order to rule out translation errors. More >>
  • SEO copyediting: This form of copyediting is concerned with the optimisation of texts for search engines and internet users.
  • Four-eyes revision: Four eyes are better than two. Particularly challenging and complicated texts can be reviewed by several proof-readers and copyeditors.
