La etapa nr. 10 - redactorul este cel care dă verdictul ”bun de tipar” - înțelegerea mea este că este ”query proofreader”, iar procesul în sine (query proofreading)este verificarea finală a textului listat, înainte de imprimarea pe calc și trimiterea către tipografie.

In publishing, proofreading happens after the manuscript has been printed. A final copy of the manuscript, or proof, is then examined by a professional proofreader.
The proofreader’s job is to check for quality before the book goes into mass production. He or she takes the original edited copy and compares it to the proof, making sure that there are no omissions or missing pages. The proofreader corrects awkward word or page breaks.
While he or she may do light editing (such as correcting inconsistent spelling or hyphenations), the professional proofreader is not a copyeditor. If too many errors are cited, he or she may return the proof for further copyediting.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Mulțumesc! Oare, ai o idee cum s-ar traduce, în acest context: query proofreading?? Whereas copyediting is mechanical, query proofreading is interpretive. În timp ce munca corectorilor este una mecanică, munca/sarcina secretarului general de redacție este interpretativă. În fine, așa ceva,.. însă query proofreader nu reiese de nicăieri că ar interprata textul

Asker: Mulțumesc mult pentru comentariile adăugate. Cred că m-am grăbit un pic cu închiderea întrebării și cu acordarea punctelor. Meritai mai mult. Da.. nu stai, oricum, în punctele acelea :), mulțumesc încă odată!
