Proofreading and editing

This is a broader service, which is not restricted to the medical / healthcare field. Because although precision is essential in the field of medicine and healthcare, it is also essential for any professional with a digital presence who wants to transform visits to their website into sales.

To gain the trust of potential customers and encourage them to buy your products or services, it is essential that your message comes across smoothly, professionally, and without interruption or misunderstanding. In order to achieve this, your writing should not only reflect correct grammar and spelling, but also utilize language and phrases that a native speaker would feel comfortable with. To this end, I can make suggestions for stylistic improvements in your documents. 

After I correct, edit or revise your text, you can publish it in Spanish or Galician with the assurance that there are no latent errors, misprints or confusion.

What kind of texts are we talking about?

  • Web content (home page, about me, services and contact)
  • Sales pages
  • Blog articles
  • Product information and marketing materials

WEB AUDIT

The web audit service consists of an analysis of your website divided into three parts: the first is a brief review of the design and layout; the second is a spelling and grammar check; and the third is a detailed report with suggestions on what I think you could improve in your texts, why and how to do it.

Audit workflow:

  • The first step is for you to fill out a form with some information about your company, web or project that will help me understand the point where you are and what you need to accomplish.
  • I will then prepare a budget with the three parts of the audit broken down so that you can choose them separately, if you prefer. I will also provide an expected delivery timeline.
  • Once you accept the budget, I’ll start conducting the audit. 
  • Upon completion, I will e-mail you the report. After you review it, if you have any questions, we will be able to arrange a videoconference session to discuss the report and clarify any open questions.
