Defining the process of proofreading is not a simple task, there is not a single term in Spanish for it, but we can say, as an opinion, that it is a multi-stage process:
This is why proofreaders are usually professionals with a higher level of education than the translator, with a wider knowledge not only of the language but of the subject. It is estimated that the fees of proofreaders are higher than those of the Translators. The post-translation stage is extremely important because it guarantees that the translation has no errors and that the documents will not be rejected because they are inaccurate, misunderstood or misinterpreted.
Learning to translate takes years of study and practice. Even writing correctly in the native language requires training well beyond the basic education. Unfortunately, there is no shortcut we can take to translate documents accurately. Like heart surgeries, plumbing fixtures, airplane piloting, high-precision professional translation (and professional post-editing of machine translation) must be left to the experts.
