Top Secrets of Effective Proofreading - A powerful though underrated way to learn from each other

Date and time: 16:00-17:00, Saturday, 13 June, 2015
NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: Panorama East

Description:
It is easy to deceive the human eye. It is just as easy to revise another professional’s translation adding preferential changes in your own image and likeness. How can you train the eye (and brain) to find errors and provide a translation in line with the customer’s requests? How can you respect the original work, and take the great chance to learn from each other? In more than 20 years’ experience, I have developed an efficient method to avoid the most common proofreading mistakes, while editing or even post-editing a translation. A structured method, an effective checklist, with no waste of time.

Speaker:
