Proofreading and editing

The proofreading phase comes after the revision phase, making it possible to make any final edits as necessary. Our department verifies the formatting and coordinates the two translated versions (translation then revision), ensuring compliance with the linguistic, terminological and technical quality criteria established beforehand.

Proofreading after formatting
Following delivery of the translation, the translators and proofreaders can be called upon again to proofread and edit the translation after the text has been formatted. They check the formatted text by comparing it with the original translation in order to identify any typos and transposition issues. They also check the layout to ensure that it is in line with the conventions of the target language.


ISM Traduction offers additional services including transcribing and translating audio and video documents into text format.

Our Department can provide a text version of the audio document in the source language as well as a translation in the target language from the transcribed document.

The transcription and the translation can be translated sentence by sentence with a time count to identify moments of speech, or by kilobyte, depending on preferences.


We also offer translation revision, which is carried out by a second professional translator of the same speciality and mother tongue. The reviser is responsible for verifying that the content in the target language is consistent with the client’s request and subject matter. He or she checks the accuracy and fluency of the translated text. Under no circumstances should the translation seem to be word-for-word. He or she also verifies elements of grammar, syntax and spelling.
