"If I had to risk a single definition of deconstruction, one as brief, elliptical and economical as a password, I would say simply and without overstatement: plus d'une langue - both more than a language and no more of a language." - Jacques Derrida
We now understand that there is no message that is not inherently determined by the medium of its transport. Even native speakers can't navigate their way around this puzzle. Native speaker translations fail by denying the vast ideological discrepancies that exist between languages. In general, I have found that their work reflects a constitutive dissymmetry in what must be an equal exchange -- one side is heavily relied upon at the cost of the other. We must defy the conventional wisdom that tells us to run to a native speaker every time there is a need for a translation. Rather, translation itself must first be understood before a translation can be successfully accomplished.

Price is negotiable! I am a hard-working perfectionist who is absolutely, unequivocally infatuated with language. I will adjust my services based upon your needs. My volunteer work is proofreading essays for the English department and marking the grammatical errors. I am an American, so my native tongue is English. In addition, I studied abroad in France, and thus I am fluent in the French language. I've taken five years of Spanish classes, and I have a working knowledge of Spanish. Additionally, I have bits and pieces of knowledge of the Mandarin Chinese language and American Sign Language. Due to this language training, I have become particularly finicky about grammar. I have won several writing competitions. I am an avid reader of the classics, but I do enjoy all genres of literature nonetheless. Pulling from these experiences, I have a lot of knowledge about various topics. Working with you would be my pleasure, and I will guarantee the quality of my work. Thank you for your time.

I am a multidisciplinary artist and beer lover. I grew up in Southern California. It wasn?t until I traveled abroad that I was confronted with what it means to be an American in the global context, and how necessary travel is to maintain a fresh perspective.
I offer a comprehensive grasp on many aspects of culture: food & drink, language, music, art, writing, theatre, history, science and travel. My approach to work is to observe, listen, and then share my opinions with a touch of humor, while balancing cultural implications.
To potential clients: I am a hard worker who is flexible, inquisitive, and easy going. I have superior skills in grammar and editing, as well as experience managing social media platforms for both business and personal use. I believe my background combined with my technical skills makes me an excellent candidate to write copy, articles, and blogs for your business.
