ארכיון הרשומות עם התג "editing"

A few years ago, following some exquisitely delicious – as well as some exquisitely atrocious – instances of communication with my editors, I concocted this presentation to demonstrate what I consider a streamlined and effective way to treat your editor / translator: It all boils down to taking a few very simple steps and remembering the voice on the other side of the email or phone belongs to a human being.

A few days ago, because someone who doesn't speak Hebrew inquired about this presentation, I took the time to translate it into English.

Pssssst… if any of you good people out there find any mistake or typo, please let me know.

ופה מתרגמים ועורכים – הלנצח-תאכל חרב? בגרסה העברית

Here is the Translation / Editing Contract Checklist in English – a translation of the Translation / Editing Contract checklist in Hebrew.

Please note – this document is meant to be used as a checklist and reminder. Pick and choose the paragraphs you need and erase whatever is unnecessary.

I would like to thank Ben Stern and Karen Gold for their translation, Alan Clayman for editing, Sandy Bloom for her useful "optional points" and all other contributors.
