Errata Meaning

What is Errata:

An errata is the list of errors or mistakes detected in a printed text. It is usually inserted at the beginning or the end of a book, detailing the amendment that must be made in each case.

Errata is a method of correction after the production of a book or print that consists of indicating the errors made in the copy, identifying the page and indicating the correction that must be made.

It is an inexpensive and practical way to record the changes and corrections that the text requires (usually typos, punctuation or spelling), since reprinting or re-proofing would be very costly in terms of production.

Thus, errors of greater magnitude, such as problems of meaning or construction in a sentence that hinder the correct interpretation of the text, are not addressed in the faith of misprints. These types of errors must be addressed during the book editing process, prior to printing.

In English, errata translates as erratum. For instance: "I could not find any misprints in this book”(I cannot find any misprints in this book).
