Style guide

Our Style Guide: your guarantee for uniformity!

Rest assured, English texts from Schrijf.be are:

  • correct: spelling and grammar are checked meticulously;
  • uniform: all writers and translators follow our Style Guide;
  • targeted at the right audience: they are accessible and clear.
     

Our English translators and copywriters all follow the guidelines described in our Style Guide. We have a Dutch Style Guide and an English Style Guide. Both can be consulted online.

English Style Guide: our sources

Our decisions concerning grammar and style are never random.
They are based on the leading reference works in the English language:

  • New Oxford Style Manual, containing:
    • New Hart’s Rules
    • New Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors
  • The Chicago Manual of Style (for US audience)
  • Style Guide of the European Commission Directorate-General for Translation
  • (Butcher's) Copy-editing: The Cambridge Handbook for Editors, Copy-editors and Proofreaders.
