Proofreading for Non-native English Speakers

Native American English Speaker Proofreads Texts

Texts written by non-native English speakers often need to be proofread by a native English speaker to make them sound correct to the native American English speaking ear. Proofreaders can specialize in proofreading texts written by non-native English speakers by checking the spelling and grammar. If necessary, proofreaders can also reformulate phrases and sentences using common idioms and synonyms that might be unfamiliar to a non-native English speaking writer.

Texts can be examined for technical jargon. Words and phrases that might be considered jargon can be replaced with more common terms during proofreading, if the texts are to be read by a non-technical audience who would not generally understand the jargon. On the other hand, if the proofreader and the writer agree that jargon is acceptable because the audience is likely to be primarily those already familiar with the terms, then the jargon can remain in the texts even after the final proofreading.

American proofreaders will generally produce texts that sound correct to the native American ear. Unless an American proofreader has lived overseas, the proofreader will not likely be able to produce texts suitable for anything but other American readers. There are quite a few words, phrases, and idioms used by American speakers and writers that are not found in other countries, nor are they easily understood outside of America. Non-native English speakers should specify if they want their texts proofread using American English. If this is not done, it may still be correct but not understood by the English speaking audience.
