"Die Grenzen meiner Sprache bedeuten die Grenzen meiner Welt."

"The limits of my language are the limits of my world."

-- Ludwig Wittgenstein

The Finer Point, a freelance editing and translation service based in Chicago, founded by a former university-level writing teacher, considers all texts first and foremost through the two-part lens at the core of all good writing: purpose and audience. Approaching every project in this way, we deliver individualized results tailored to your specific needs. Rather than "fixing" your writing according to a generalized editorial style, as editing services often do, The Finer Point prioritizes what you -- the writer -- would like to communicate.  We work with you not only to ensure that your text is as focused and polished as it can be, but also to maintain your unique authorial voice throughout the editing process. Good editing -- and indeed good translation -- essentially offers you the best version of yourself and your ideas, and this is certainly our goal.  


You have something to say: The Finer Point helps you say it.
