Occasionally an old friend of mine asks me to translate some portions of his correspondence with his Asian business partners into proper English. Of course the native English speakers of you will agree when I say that I’m not the first person one comes up with when it comes to translating large amounts of text into English. But as my friend and his business partners are not that good in English as I am, I think I do a pretty good job. (Again you see that it always depends on the perspective if you want to measure the quality of your skills.)
This said I have a smooth opening for this articles topic.
