When you need to make sure everything is ready to go
Proofreading is more than just reviewing text. Proofreading can be an essential task to ensure not only accuracy and quality but to make sure that all of the individual pieces are working as intended. Sometimes it is a straightforward review of translated documents while at other times it could be intended to verify the work of another translator or to fact-check and cross-reference numerous documents for consistency.
Translation.ie offers professional proofreading service for all kinds of documents. We handle business presentations, technical manuals, annual reports as well as legal, medical or personal documents.
Our proofreaders and reviewers will even handle marketing and point-of-sale materials, scientific reports, annual reports, publications, conference papers, and any other documents require review or revision. We’re not limited to the business world either, our proofreaders have the experience necessary and are also able to offer an academic specific service with an essay, dissertation and even thesis proofing.
Good writing is essential to good business
Without good writing, it’s difficult to communicate in today’s world. The best product, idea or concept is nothing if it’s not expressed well. A great piece of writing will strengthen potential customers’ confidence in your product or service while also helping you appeal to a broader audience.
And, proofreading is so much more than just verifying text. We also cross-reference your content, ensuring that references are correctly inserted and tables & graphs are labelled correctly. We make sure website pages are correctly linked. We even review external sources for accuracy and veracity, if required.
Proofreading can be done in any language. It is the critical of checking what has already been translated for accuracy and linguistic quality before going to final review or publication. Proofreading, therefore, is an essential part of our production process for every document we handle. This is an essential step in our quality control processes as outlined in the EN 17100:2015 certified process.

MTPE: Best mix of human and machine
Post Editing of Machine Translation output is called MTPE. MTPE is very popular in the language industry these days. It allows for large amounts of translation while also ensuring contextual accuracy.
Machine translation may be able to process very large amounts of text very quickly, however any language professional can tell you that final adjustments must be made by a human translator. They must correct for things like sentence structure, context and flow; subtleties not yet learned by the ‘machine’.
MTPE is also used to train MT engines to become better and is used as a method to speed up translated content production. In this way MTPE is an art and is becoming quite a skilled task for the modern day translator.
We have very skilled translators who work with MTPE processes and technology, continuing to make their processes and outputs better and better over time.
