    working on + verb

    Post  Radmin on Tue Jul 20, 2010 4:28 pm

    ¡Hola! Estoy traduciendo un documento para la escuela que explica los servicios especiales de un estudiante. I am having trouble with this sentence. "He is working on editing for word choice and supporting details to improve his writing."
    "Él está trabajando en/para(?) corregir su selección de palabras y los detalles que apoyan el tema para mejorar su escritura." This sounds very clumsy to me! Thank you for your help!

    Personally, I would choose "en." It sounds more like a process (working on) rather than something that the person is doing once with a specific end. But maybe some native speakers have other thoughts.
