Presentation of the originals

If a correction is needed, please revise previously the original documents and activate the spellchecker. Bear in mind that texts proofreading requests without a minimum of acceptable quality can be declined.

If documents are originally written in another language and then translated to Catalan by an automatic translation programme, the authors must revise it properly before sending them. When materials do not meet this requirement, they will be delivered back to the author so they can make proper adjustments.

To elaborate texts or before any enquiry, we recommend to use the following resources:

Delivery of translations and corrections

Deadlines try to adjust to use necessities whenever the minimum margin of 3 working days is respected. These deadlines may change depending on the specificity of the used terminology, the linguistic quality of the original text or the workload of the Service.

In addition to the correction or translation, doubts and observations for the author to bear in mind may also be sent.

Request

Send your request to assessorament.valencia @ uv.es. In the body text you must write the body, centre, department or service that requests the correction or translation.
