Editing
Where pedantry is a virtue

We get to the heart of your text: at least two in-house editors with a passion for detail pore over every word, comma and full stop, guaranteeing that the final result is fluently written and easy to read.
We edit

precisely and meticulously, ensuring that grammar, orthography, punctuation, lexis, register, logic and idiom are accurate and appropriate. We also research and verify content and provide your text with a clean and attractive layout.

Apropos layout: we also edit directly in PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, QuarkXPress and InDesign documents, and can even work directly via your website’s CMS. Our text is your text – whatever the format.

We are also certified in accordance with ISO 17100 and ISO 9001.

Feel free to contact us.

What our clients say about us

Tailor-made language guidelines

Diction supports us with the stylistic revision and subsequent translation of important publications. We simply send the documents to the agency in Buchs and, within a matter of hours, receive linguistically correct and stylistically attractive texts in German, French, Italian and English. Diction has also compiled language guidelines containing the most important rules and conventions specifically for our company, thus enabling us to learn and improve as well.

Diligent and dependable

Diction are the very definition of dependable. Texts are always delivered on time – even when deadlines are extremely tight – and demonstrate an impressive degree of precision and attention to detail. Whatever the project, the results speak for themselves, and that is especially gratifying. For the client and for us.

FAQ

Can I request that my text be edited but without any style changes?

If you don’t want us to make any stylistic changes, you can select proofreading. For proofreading projects, we only correct spelling, grammar and punctuation errors and unidiomatic language (e.g. “a shoe-in” instead of “a shoo-in”), with the exception of deliberate wordplay. For editing jobs, we will also improve the style of the text and use synonyms to reduce repetition. You can also ask us to fact-check your text. This can be a good idea if your text contains a lot of dates or product and company names.

Who will work on my text?

Texts sent in for editing are always read by a member of our in-house team. Our clients usually request editing of the German text before the edited text is translated into other languages by our translators. We offer editing in every language. If we do not have any in-house experts for the languages you require, your text will be read by one of our carefully selected external specialists. In any case: You will always have direct contact with the person editing your text. You can contact this person by phone or e-mail, whichever you prefer.
