I’m an editor, working for a publishing company that writes literature for the pharmaceutical industry. We work with doctors, fact-checking every single text we work with. It’s very important because people’s health is involved.
I got an email from the marketing director of a huge multinational company about a paper a doctor submitted. He had some concerns, so we talked it over with him and made a few edits for both grammar and medical content. At a certain point he said we should move forward, saying:
Client: It does not look coherent but it does not have to be. The important thing is that it is clear.
…I think it might have to be coherent, too.
