Due to recent discussions:
Proofreading is, where CTs are
If the proofreader feels that it is absolutely necessary to streamline a CT
- checked for consistency,
- spelling and
in a way that involves more than just replacement (in both senses: change position in the text as in re place, as well as use another word instead of the previous used) of one or two words, he should contact the author via PM and discuss his ideas
. Should the original author not be available anymore, the proofreader should enahance the text to his own liking. And discuss the changes with at least one other member of CTD.
This might slow down proofreading even more, but on the other hand everyone can be sure that his texts aren't changed in a massive way without him knowing.
Proofreaders should check that the following standards are used:
- metric system
- SI units
- american spelling
