Spanish translation editing

It’s one thing to have your writing translated; it’s another thing to have it edited. Translation refers to the practice of adapting one language to another. But, not all languages translate word for word to another language. As a result, the meaning can sometimes become lost in translation. This often happens when the translator doesn’t understand the related terminology.

Jenifer takes your document one step beyond translation to offer Spanish translation editing. She reviews your translated documents for consistency, clarity, grammar, and style. At the same time, she ensures the words mean the same in English as the original Spanish version. And, if you need to enhance your audience’s experience? Jenifer can suggest ways to strengthen your writing for greater impact.

English as a second language (ESL) editing

Knowing another language or several languages is a gift. It’s a talent that not just anyone can do. Even more impressive is the ability to write in those languages. But, regardless of whether you have a strong command of the language you are writing in, you always need an editor.

An editor checks terminology, word usage, spelling, and overall clarity. For example, you don’t want to tell someone about a “new lounge” when you meant to write a “new lung.” Knowing the right words and spelling them correctly means everything when connecting with your audience.

Having worked with many brilliant authors around the world, Jenifer has a solid background in editing the works of non-native English speakers. As a result of this experience, she knows how to interpret the meaning of the original work and asks pointed questions to bring out the intended meaning. Plus, she can organize your words and sentences so they flow smoothly and succinctly.
