Someone is examining an Internet project at Codeplex.com.
Can he say "I'm looking at the project 'Project name'", or it is a mistake? What is the best way to say it?

  • Hi omlin and welcome to the site. Please try to be as specific as possible in the wording of your questions, as general proofreading requests are off-topic. What is causing the confusion for you — the verb, the article, the preposition, something else? Thanks and welcome again.

  • Thank you for your comment! I'll try to be more specific next time. Here I meant the verb + the preposition combination. Apr 28 '11 at 7:37

Both "looking at the project" and "looking into the project" are correct.


Martin Beckett's answer is correct. In order to streamline the sentence, I might get rid of the and say something like "I'm looking at project 'Name'."

  • Or, streamlined further, "I'm looking at projectname", assuming that "projectname" is unambiguous.
