Don’t you just hate it when you see a typo in work you’ve just published, posted on a website or sent to a client?

Every writer needs to learn how to proofread. As a professional editor for over 30 years, I have a few
favourite techniques for effective proofreading. Here are some, plus a few ideas I picked up from some other professionals.

1. Plan for proofreading. Set aside a number of hours in your schedule. Proofreading is a step as essential as researching, outlining or drafting. Never send your work to an audience without checking it over. Set aside enough time to allow you to proofread your work more than once.

2. Leave it alone. When you re-read your own work, you often don’t see what you actually wrote — you see what you intended to write. Put the document aside overnight, if you have the time. Leaving some time between writing and proofreading will help you spot the keystrokes you did not intend to make.

3. Post a list over your desk of words you often misspell, and the conventions for the document — whether you’re using Canadian, British or US spelling; acceptable short forms; units of measure; whether you use the Oxford comma or spaces around em dashes, and so on — that could change from one project to the next.

(EN)-(ES) - Terminology for the English-Spanish translation of mercantile documents used in international trade | Karina Socorro Trujillo

(EN)-(ES) - Terminology for the English-Spanish translation of mercantile documents used in international trade | Karina Socorro Trujillo | Translation, Languages & Glossaries | Scoop.it

Mercantile documents are text types generated within the international trade. Having studied a corpus of texts containing over 170 authentic documents of this specific field in English and Spanish from a translation perspective, we have compiled an English-Spanish glossary of some 400 commercial terms with definitions and explanations in Spanish where appropriate, and a Spanish-English glossary of the same terms.

 

As is well known, subject matter knowledge is basic to understanding the source text of any specific field, while it also benefits target text production. The bilingual glossaries we are presenting here are conceived as a useful translation tool reinforcing cognitive competence in the field of English-Spanish translation of the texts used in international trade. In addition, the glossary is based on sound bibliography and sources of information such as specialized monolingual, bilingual and multilingual glossaries and dictionaries with or without definitions, handbooks and web sites in this field, International norms and legislation, parallel texts (monolingual and multilingual) as well as input from specialists and training courses.
