EDITING

Why is editing important?

Editing not only corrects errors in spelling, grammar or syntax, but also looks at how clearly your ideas come across to readers who may be unfamiliar with the subject you are writing about. Ultimately, it’s about making the reader experience as enjoyable and effortless as possible.

 

So, whether English is mother tongue or not, if you have a draft letter, a web post or an important email and want to make sure it has maximum impact, you have come to the right place.

TRANSLATION

We translate CVs, cover letters, meeting minutes, contracts, university research papers. 

Please contact us for further details.
