Proofreading and editing by Karen Tkaczyk
Language professionals proofread every day. Improve this skill with methods that you can immediately apply in your work, in combinations that take account of your own strengths and weaknesses.
This evening workshop introduces methods to make the final process of checking a text more reliable and to assure translators, editors, and writers that they are delivering an accurate, well-presented, and professional product. We’ll explore old-fashioned, time-tested proofreading techniques and newer electronic tools, and fashion them into processes that work in our fast-paced, deadline-driven world. You will leave with practical tips that can be applied immediately.
The workshop will include exercises, quizzes and multiple interactive segments and you will receive an exercise to complete in preparation for the workshop.
