Proofreading is the important final quality control step for a text. Even texts that seem correct at first glance often contain structures and terminology that deviate from standard language.
Standard language is a prescribed and arranged set of language rules. These often differ from spoken language and are subject to constant change.
The VERBA team monitors these changes and corrects everything that does not meet the recommendations of the competent language institutions. We fine-tune the text to make it more comprehensible and easier to read. We also adapt the style to ensure it fulfills the text’s function.
Language editing is most often needed for marketing material (brochures, catalogues, web pages, etc.) and academic texts (graduate theses, scientific papers, articles, research papers, etc.).
