The offices of Baltijos vertimai UAB offer editing/proofreading of all types of texts from technical or medical documents to fiction. Our translations into Lithuanian are edited/proofread free of charge. Editor’s/proofreader’s services for your texts and foreign language editor’s/proofreader’s services (for translations of your texts) can be ordered additionally.

Editing/proofreading is a check and correction of the text layout, language (punctuation and spelling) and style, without changing the substance. Sometimes, one language mistake or nuance of inappropriate style can make the text inadequate. To prevent any of these inconveniences, texts need editing/proofreading. A combination of diligent work by a translator and editor/proofreader guarantees translation consistency. During editing/proofreading of translations, the source text is compared against the target text, i.e. figures, names, surnames and similar information, along with key terms, are checked.

  • We recommend ordering text editing when preparing texts for public use (e.g. company documents, agreements, contracts, cycles of lectures, public speeches, scenarios, etc.), publishing, when you have doubts regarding text layout, language correctness or text style. We recommend ordering the services of Lithuanian linguists and foreign language editors/proofreaders. Translations into foreign languages are checked and corrected by target language native speaker editors.

Translation check helps to prevent translation errors. The verifier or second translator reviews the translation, corrects any syntax, punctuation, spelling or meaning errors, checks translations of terms and suggests possible improvements of the translation. Why can this job not be done by the editor/proofreader? If the editor/proofreader has excellent command of the source foreign language and translation skills, he/she can check the translation. But sometimes finding an editor with excellent command of a rare foreign language is complicated.

For example, text is translated from Hebrew into Lithuanian. A Lithuanian language editor/proofreader will eliminate any language and style errors left in the translation, but verification of the target and source texts will be limited to layout and Roman numerals. If we want to check if the translation is correct, we will need the services of a second Hebrew-Lithuanian translator.
