My credentials include linguistic knowledge within the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic aspects of modern English guaranteed to add cohesion and accuracy to your work. As your personal editor, I provide the outcome you expect only from a professional while working within your time constraints and budget. Each piece of work is treated with care and importance. Quality, competence, and confidence are the utmost importance to me as your personal editor.

Additionally, my wife and I do Korean to English translations for those needing the quality results and the knowledge of two professionals adept at both languages fluently. We do not use translating programs or outsource, as the language is critically reviewed from both of us to make sure the correct usage is coherent from a native's point of view.
