Fact-checking & question verification
Fact-checking is part and parcel of being a good translator. My clients appreciate it when I spot a mistake in their text.
With so much fake news going around, it is vital for serious media outlets to stand out from the crowd and ensure that everything they publish or broadcast is factually accurate.
Why entrust a professional translator with this job? Because I’ve been doing fact-checking for over a decade while translating documents for my clients. On countless occasions I’ve saved my clients’ skin by spotting a factual error in their document and informing them, and my clients appreciate it, as you can see from the feedback at the bottom of this page.
