Hola Alfonso,
Si mi trabajo es traducir directamente lo escrito...pero al mismo tiempo mantener el sentido de lo que dicen. Posteriormente envio la traducion a un "editor" y ella lo finaliza.

Muchas gracias a todos por la ayuda. This is a great website! Glad I found it.

Gomey.

I think that would be either proofreader or editor.

Also, if memory serves me right, derechohabiente is a word commonly used in Mexico for people who are insured or have the right to medical treatment in the IMSS, the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social.

That's right, David, I found this on the site you offered us, IMSS:

¿Todos debemos tener la credencial?
Si, todos los Derechohabientes del IMSS mayores de 9 años deberán contar con ella.

Regarding proofreader, it's exactly a corrector de pruebas, since the job described in the dictionary for proofreaders is the same that correctores hold.

But, if you use editor as a synonyms with proofreader, I should point out that both (Eng.) editor and (Spa.) editor are perfect false friends (false twins?), as we use editor with the nuance of publisher.

What's the plural of proofreader? Where do I have to put the s? Now I know: proofreaders.

Regarding reader-proof,(use proof-reader) it's exactly a corrector de pruebas, since the job described in the dictionary for reader-proof is the same that correctores hold.

But, if you use editor as a synonyms with reader-proof, I should point out that both (Eng.) editor(in the publishing world they use copy editor which is similar to a proof-reader. An editor is managerial position in publishing. and (Spa.) editor are perfect false friends (false twins?), as we use editor with the nuance of publisher.

What's the plural of reader-proof? Where do I have to put the s?
proof-readers never readers-proof

... if you use editor as a synonym of proofreader ...
... if editor is synonymous with proofreader ...

I think editor(Spanish) is a good translation of editor(English)... it's not really a synonym of proofreader.

And as far as I know, proofreader (pl. proofreaders) would be used without the dash.

Regarding Gomey's work, I guess that maybe you're hired only to do a more or less literal translation, a first draft, and that there will be, after your work, a corrector de pruebas (I don't know what to call this in English, it's a specific job at editorial companies), who would have the task of brushing up your work.

Rusty, your explanations about your decisions are also really interesting. I've learnt a lot!
corrector de pruebas es proofreader en Inglés
