Are you ready to discuss project specifications? It is important to evaluate the original text in order to give you an accurate estimate.
Marco Díaz's services include translation of texts from English into Spanish, editing or proofreading of either documents translated into Spanish or written in the target language itself, and copywriting.
Editing may entail either the correction of mistakes or rewriting of the text to ensure clarity, conciseness, and coherence.
Proofreading includes the close reading of the text in order to ensure there are no spelling or formatting mistakes.
