Our language consultants can ensure the clarity and correctness of your writing

Our team of language experts provide proofreading and editing of all kinds of professional texts - from short sales texts to comprehensive reports, dissertations and scientific articles. You will always have direct contact with your consultant, so you can discuss changes and revisions to your text along the way. We ensure that your text is coherent and correct, with consistent language and use of terminology. Contact us for a quote on proofreading or editing of your texts.

How we work with editing/proofreading

Before we start

You discuss the assignment with one of our consultants and agree on how extensive the proofreading or editing should be. On this basis, you agree on a price and a timetable for the project.

Proofreading and editing

Our consultant then reads your text and inserts amendments with track changes or comments. We can do a purely linguistic proofreading, where we correct grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, punctuation and awkward wording, or a more extensive editing, where we also look at the overall structure, coherence and readability of the text. Your text will always be reviewed by a native speaker of the relevant language (English or Danish).

Personal contact and sparring

You will have direct contact with the editor/proofreader who is working on your text. They will always be available to answer your questions and discuss any proposed changes to the text in general. This service is of course included in the agreed price.

Proofreading or editing?

When our clients contact us for help with a text, they often ask for a proofreading. But often, what they really need is an edit of their text. 

So what's the difference between proofreading and editing? At GlobalDenmark, a proofreading includes correcting language errors, i.e. grammar, spelling and punctuation, and checking for consistency in headings, tables, figures and the table of contents.

When we edit a text, we delve much deeper into its content. In addition to the things covered by a proofreading, we also point out ambiguities in the text and check its overall coherence, ensuring that there is a common thread. We make sure that you are consistent in your use of terminology and that paragraphs and sentences are logically linked and have a clear focus. And we make sure the text is easy to read. We do this by splitting long sentences, deleting superfluous words and repetitions, or rewriting sentences without changing their meaning.

Readability determines how the reader perceives your text and whether you get your message across. No matter how strong or important your arguments are, they will fail to make an impact if the reader has to struggle to understand them.

In general, you could say that proofreading focuses on linguistic errors (grammar, spelling and punctuation), while editing also focuses on content, structure and involves more thorough linguistic optimisation.

Based on the objective of the text and your timeframe and your budget, we can help you decide whether your text needs proofreading or editing.

we correct grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes
