Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

As a native Korean speaker and a US-college graduate, I've worked as a translator for the past six years. I'm language-savvy, punctual and dedicated to provide readable translation that fits in the cultural context - it's localization, not translation! I also have broad travel experience (43 countries) and am very comfortable with translating travel-related text. As of April 2014, I am currently based in London, United Kingdom.
