Judy Petersen will show us what happens to multi-author/multi-translator documents between submission and publishing. She’ll kick off her session with a short review of the most frequently occurring problems that publishing house editors must fix. Then she’ll demonstrate a method that she developed for editing online. You’ll walk away with tips on how to add value to your translations and how to save time and increase quality when you’re editing or proofreading.
