How to prepare text revisions
- First of all, check for proper use of spelling and punctuation (correction) or, if the syntax, style, title and lists (revision) also need to be assessed.
- Determine the desired final format of the corrections: hand-written notes in the margin on a printout, as a separate visible or invisible list of errors in the document, or corrections that can be accepted individually or as a whole.
- For longer texts that have been prepared in several phases (e.g. web pages), it is important to check for repetitions, contradictions, changes in style and different constructions, especially when the text in question also needs to be translated.
