Revision

If you would like an improvement in the text you have already translated, please request that we revise it. Revision is the procedure whereby the original text is compared with the translated text so as to check the translation.

The task of reviewing should be undertaken when the translated text meets all the basic quality standards, i.e., it is to a large extent comprehensible, the grammar, spelling and syntactical errors appear sporadically and it does not require 100% change in the register.
