• Proofreading
  • Your document is almost ready for submission. As an uninvolved person, I will conduct a thorough final check regarding spelling, grammar, and syntax. When applicable, I will cross-check if tables and figures are numbered consistently and cited correctly in the text.
  • Copyediting
  • Also referred to as mechanical editing, this form of editorial service at Bioscience Translation LLC includes:

    - Correcting spelling, word use, punctuation, grammar, and syntax.

    - Revising for consistent format and style (such as use of abbreviations, hyphenation, 
      capitalization, numbers, etc.).

    - Preparing a style sheet that lists decisions on formatting and style for your reference.
  • Substantive Editing
  • At this level of comprehensive line editing, I pay close attention to the overall clarity of language and the organization of existing content. Changes and comments will be made to:

    - Ensure sentence clarity, brevity, and readability.

    - Smooth transitions between sentences and paragraphs.

    - Eliminate or indicate redundancy or overused words.

    - Maintain a consistent style between paragraphs and sections.

    - Indicate conceptual inconsistencies.

    - Identify problematic passages that are ambiguous or difficult to understand and suggest
      alternate sentences for your selection.
  • Word Reduction
  • Abstracts and scientific notes are good examples of documents that may require word reduction to meet the word limit set by a publisher. A reasonable expectation is a word reduction by 20% and can be done by restructuring sentences, improving word choice, and removing redundant information.
  • Translation
  • Examples of translation services include:

    - Preparation of English summaries of general information provided in German research 
      articles or on German websites related to biological research.

    - Support during transformation of German thesis chapters into English manuscripts for
      publication in refereed scientific journals.

    - Comprehensive translation of laboratory manuals and protocols from/into both languages
      for biotech companies.
