About me
Lawrence Payne is an independent writer and editor specializing in services for the translation and marketing fields. He has 28 years' professional experience with leading global corporations and their associated service providers, and in that time has covered a wide range of subjects, including annual business reporting and disclosure, automotive testing and manufacturing, computers, the environment, medical diagnostics, music and the arts, robotics, telecommunications, travel and more.

Mr. Payne's work has long been in demand by companies such as Toshiba America, JBL Professional, Harris Corporation and SpeakerCraft, and has been recognized by advertising clubs in New York, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura County, California. He has also produced ads and marketing materials for major Japanese manufacturers, many of them in his capacity as senior copywriter at prestigious Intermart Advertising/Tokyo. Well respected for his editorial abilities, he serves translators and agencies in the U.S., Latin America, Britain and Europe, China, Japan, Korea and India.

Mr. Payne is a frequent contributor to consumer and trade magazines. He has published a dozen full-length articles in the leading graphic-design journal How, and was twice profiled in its pages. A knowledgeable musician and critic as well, he has written for Guitar Player, Virgin Records' Dogma and others, and was the associate editor at Music Connection, an L.A.-based biweekly serving the recording industry.

Mr. Payne's service is structured to facilitate the rapid throughput of text and editing, regardless of project scope or complexity. The success he enjoys is a direct result of prompt response to customer needs and the integrity he brings to each client relationship.
