Editing / Proofreading

German texts are corrected using the Duden norms and the new spelling rules. If the client prefers, other methods can be used, for example Swiss spelling and agency spelling.


Proofreading involves
  • spelling
  • punctuation
  • grammar
  • sentence structure
  • hyphenation


The aim of editing is to achieve a high standard of linguistic quality for your text. Based on sample pages, the steps that you would like included will be discussed. This will bear in mind that the text is a personal expression by an individual. The motto is to change only as much as necessary, but as little as possible.

Editing includes proofreading, but also the following main aspects:
  • use of appropriate stylistic devices
  • optimum readability and comprehensibility
  • checking of the use of references and quotations in the text
  • homogenisation of the terminology and spelling
  • in academic texts:
    • appropriate linguistic register
    • standardised quotation style
    • layout of footnotes
