Proofreading and editing - GlobalDenmark

Proofreading and editing

How we work

Before we start

You discuss the job with one of our consultants and agree on the scope of the proofreading or editing. This will give a basis for pricing and a timetable for the further process.

Proofreading or editing?

The proofreader reads and corrects your text, inserting suggestions with track changes or similar. Depending on what you have agreed, the job may entail a simple language proofreading to check for grammar, spelling, punctuation and unnatural wording, or more comprehensive editing, where we also consider the overall structure of the text, its context and readability. Your text will always be reviewed by a native speaker of the relevant language (English or Danish).

Personal contact and advice

Our consultant working on your text will be your direct and personal contact throughout the process, and will always be available to answer questions and discuss the suggested changes or the text in general. Naturally, this is all part of the service.

Why choose us?

When you send a text to GlobalDenmark for proofreading or editing, it will be reviewed by one of our highly qualified consultants with vast experience in advising on written communication in Danish and in English. The consultant will also be your direct contact person during the proofreading or editing job. This direct contact to the consultant means you receive a personal, flexible and fast service. We have extensive experience in proofreading and editing  for the public and private sectors. We are one of very few companies in Denmark that can help edit scientific articles  in either Danish or English.

Our proofreading service includes:

  • correcting grammar, punctuation and spelling errors
  • ensuring consistent use of terms
  • checking language consistency in headings, tables, figures and the tables of contents

Our editing service includes the following:

  • correcting grammar, punctuation and spelling errors
  • ensuring consistent use of terms
  • checking language consistency in headings, tables, figures and the tables of contents
  • indicating possible ambiguities or inconsistencies in use of terms
  • editing the text for coherence and cohesion – this includes making sure paragraphs and sentences stay focused and have a logical flow
  • editing the text to ensure readability and stylistic consistency – this can include splitting long sentences and deleting unnecessary words
  • rephrasing sentences for clarity and idiomatic correctness, without changing their substance

Editing will often require that we meet with the author to follow-up on edits and to develop the text together. We can meet at your organisation (if in Copenhagen), GlobalDenmark in Frederiksberg, or on Skype or Zoom.
