You need proofreading, when...
Your content isn’t written in your first language and you want to sound like a native speaker. This content can be handy anything from a short business e-mail to a lengthy personal letter and comes in especially if you’re a worker living abroad.
Maybe you’ve written a novel, book, article, or promotional content, and naturally want to have it proofread before it gets published. Or perhaps you’re a business owner with an in-house writing team, but you want to be extra sure your text is absolutely perfect before it hits the printers or is shared with your readers.
Perhaps you’re a student or academic about to publish a journal article, dissertation, or term paper. You’ve been working on it for quite a while, so it’s obvious you don’t want any mistakes in it.
Whatever the task is, you’ve found the right team to trust it to.

What will your proofreader do?
Proofreading is more than simply eliminating mistakes. It’s all about taking your spelling, grammar, and overall writing style to a next level. With a professional Taia proofreader, you get someone who will assist you to use the language to its full potential.
We define four main types of proofreading: proofreading and editing, structure check, clarity check, format check, and citation editing.
Proofreading is the most popular service as it’s the most comprehensive. It means the proofreader/editor will check your almost-final text, eliminate all the mistakes and inconsistencies, and provide additional feedback to help you understand the edits and become a better writer yourself.
The most common errors a professional editor/proofreader is looking for, are spelling, punctuation, grammar, and syntax. This covers the most basic mistakes like wrong spelling or commas, quotation marks, hyphenations, or periods in the wrong places; and it also touches up sentence structure, verbs and tenses, prepositions, word order, and other inconsistencies that are most common when someone is writing in a language that is not native to them.
Then, the proofreader/editor also takes care of the more nuanced grammatical and style rules, such as tone of voice, redundancies, passive, and active voice, etc. Should any details be unclear, your proofreader will contact you to make the right style- or content-related adjustments.
Structure check is what follows proofreading and editing, and, like the name suggests, is designed to help you evaluate the order in which you are presenting your information. With your main goal in mind, you can examine if the structure of your document is fully supporting this goal, and if the content is properly focused and free of any inconsistencies or repetitive details. This step is usually recommended for studies, research and similar academic papers.
Clarity check, on the other hand, is quite popular with marketing, creative and promotional texts that tell a story. If you need to present a clear and compelling argument, a clarity check will help you evaluate how well you’ve described your concept. It is also useful for, say, legal arguments or student theses, where the logic behind the idea is particularly scrutinised.
Format check is generally an add-on for proofreading and editing service, as it entails the editor making sure your document is properly laid out – that the pages are numbered, that all tables are listed and formatted, that headers and footers are consistent, and the cover page is inserted, if so required. With large volumes of content (for example, with PhD theses), this kind of attention to detail is extremely valuable.
Citation editing is an academic favourite. It means our experts will enhance your text with whichever reference style you require and provide you with timely feedback if you’re missing any sources or have provided an incomplete reference list.

Frequently asked questions
Proofreading is crucial when you want your written content to be impeccable. A proofreader doesn’t just correct grammatical errors in the final product, but takes your text to the next level to make it seem like it was written by a native speaker who is also a subject matter expert.
Revision is the first step after the translation is finished, where the linguist checks the content in order to ensure that the message of the original has been conveyed properly. After the revision is done, proofreading comes up next. The proofreader takes a look at the translated and revised target text to make sure it is stylistically correct and tweak it slightly so that it will sound even better to a native speaker.
In the simplest of terms, all who are looking for a perfect translation and want to leave nothing to chance. All who would like to make their content a true reflection of their business and professionalism.
Make sure your text is impeccable!
