I have been a freelance-translator since 2005 and am pursuing the master's degree in translation at HUFS-GSIT (Hankuk University of Foreign Study-Graduate School of Interpreting and Translation, 한국외국어대학교 통번역대학원), the best and oldest of its kind in Korea. 

My major translation works hitherto include:

- 2 religious books by Jiddu Krishnamurti and Gil Friedman, the former has been published, titled "지구별 어디로 가고 있는가" with one of my professors' name 

- An advertisement pitch by MediaMonks for a Korean beer commercial (CASS)

- An independent movie, "I Get By in This Crazy World (미친 세상, 그래도)" 

- Technical documents of a Korean conglomerate for a U.S. law suit (Sorry for the lack of details due to NDA) 

and many others.

In addition, I have successfully finished intensive/separate translation courses in my graduate school dealing with various kinds of texts including (you can also find sample translations in my profile by their title):

- Economic and Commercial texts translation

- Political and Legal texts translation 

- Liberal Arts and Social Sciences translation

- Literary translation 

- Korean Studies texts translation 

- General texts: Contracts, News Articles. etc. 

I am also a classical music enthusiast and will be more than excited to translate music-related materials.

I have been and am being trained both practically and theoretically by top professionals in the country in terms of what it takes to achieve the best outcome in translation as well as to fulfill clients' needs. 

What I can GUARANTEE is that you will get an English to Korean translation rendered with the highest level of precision and fluency equivalent to news articles or text books that should impress and satisfy your Korean customers beyond expectation. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me. I also welcome sample translation.
