WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOUR WEBSITE

As your English editor, we will carefully read each and every sentence of your copy and correct any spelling and grammatical errors. Without changing the meaning, we will rephrase and rewrite sentences and paragraphs so your intent becomes clear and concise. We adhere to the current rules of American Business English, the world-wide standard which will be understood in all countries in which you do business. Below are some of the things we routinely seek out and correct. We make this process as easy and no-hassle as possible.

  • Fix Common Problems

  •  

  • Rewrite and correct subpar Google auto-translations - Auto translations are great for fast and dirty copy and to frame your ideas but once you know what you want to say to future business partners, make sure you are saying it in perfect English.

  • Apply best practices - This is stylistic. Current American Business English emphasizes brevity and clarity, allowing the busy reader to understand your meaning immediately.

  • Titling - Your titles should be concise and correct. Ideally, a reader should be able to ascertain the meaning of your document from the titling alone.

  • Spelling (American Dictionary) - All spelling will be computer checked. American spellings will be used when there is a discrepancy between British and American versions.

  • Syntax errors corrected - Different languages arrange sentences differently. Good English has a specific syntax that makes it easy to read and understand by native English speakers.

  • Punctuation verified - Punctuation can be tricky. It shouldn't be. Simple and straightforward is the best way and we will make your meaning clear with as few unnecessary additions as possible.

  • Contractions corrected - Current American Business English sometimes allows for a more relaxed manner of speech and the use of contractions. We will proof your use of contractions or suggest them when appropriate.

  • Abbreviations - We will proof your abbreviations and expand them when we think it is necessary.

  • Run-on sentences simplified - Breaking down extremely long sentences is sometimes an asset in making your point.

  • Prepositions verified - Grammar - Prepositions must be correct and consistent throughout your copy.

  • Mixed metaphors corrected - When necessary, we will correct these.

  • Idioms proofed - Idiomatic English sometimes helps make a reader feel comfortable. If you use idioms, we will make sure they are appropriate.

  • Colloquialisms checked - The same as with Idioms, we will check that they make sense and are appropriate.

  • Common misquotes corrected - Even native English speakers make these mistakes but you shouldn't. We will oversee quotes when you use them.

  • Terminology and rephrasing - This is about smooth word flow. When necessary, we will convert awkward language into smooth definitions and descriptions.

  • Clarify meaning of ambiguous statements - This is more toward meaning than grammar/spelling but your intention is of primary importance in your communication. We will see that it is understood.

  • Note culturally sensitive copy - When communicating across cultures, certain rules should be observed.

  • Double check everything - When we are done, we proofread and double-check everything.
