    I have written over 5000 articles on a broad range of topics. I offer proofreading, editing and writing services of a very high standard but at an economical price. I prefer flat rate jobs and am happy to negotiate fees, but have put a start fee in the box because you cannot leave it blank. No job too big or small. ***In case you are not from Australia (which is where I am ) you will notice I use Australian spelling unless I am otherwise instructed by a client. However, I can write equally well in US and UK English. I have never missed a deadline and have plenty of satisfied customers, including many who return again and again. Although I haven't done a lot of work in this site, I do have plenty of experience. Just ask and I can help you. My websites are http://ghostwritingspot.com and http://laurencewins.com  less

    Dedicated and dependable. When it comes to translation, I want my translation to be as perfect and sophisticated as possible. A lot of people can translate in Korean, but not all translators have the same skill level. I take pride in making every translation as polished as possible. When a Korean speaking person reads my translation, I want them to think that it was originally written in Korean. I carefully select the words and thoughts that match the original written work. I even consider the meaning behind the words and always convey the same message as originally intended. I have lived in the states for more than 10 years. I studied English language and literature, and Korean is my first language. I have 3 years experience professionally translating English to Korean and visa versa. Currently, I reside in Idaho, USA. We raise our children to be bilingual.  less
