“…Steven’s responses to my questions were always thoughtful and prompt. He delivered more than I expected. For example, our contract specified that he would compile 50 Korean contact names and addresses; he sent along 243 — without demanding more money than we originally agreed. I was delighted to learn of other services he offered to further tap into the dynamic higher education market in Korea. We look forward to continuing to work with Korean Consulting. I’d recommend them without hesitation.”

Thanks for the prompt, professional service. This was a big help to us!

Korean journal articles and other scientific research reports

The Korean academic and scientific literature is especially strong in electronics, telecommunications, automobiles, industrial chemicals, construction, and semiconductors. As a result, I translate Korean academic and scientific papers and reports on all of these topics. I handle a lot of medical and social science papers (including papers in economics and finance), as well.

Though my primary clients in the field of Korean academic and scientific translation are non-Korean academics and companies needing access to Korean research, I also support Korean academics. Because Korean researchers receive more recognition for publishing English-language articles in international journals than they do if they publish only in Korea, Korean scientists with especially high-quality research commission me to translate their papers to English. I use my skills in statistical analysis and academic writing to translate these scientific Korean documents into field-appropriate English.

“Steven, Just thought I’d say hello: I just got your latest advertisement. You made business cards for me many years ago on my very first visit to Korea. So this is a report that your cards were very useful. (I attach one as a reminder). At this point i am a frequent visitor to Korea and a professor (two months of the year) at KAIST, as in my signature below… Thanks for helping me get started.”

Korean masters theses and doctoral dissertations

Graduate-level students in Korea publishing theses and dissertations in Korean must also include English abstracts with their deliveries. An abstract is a summary of the main points of the paper. However, poorly written English abstracts that don’t read naturally–or even communicate properly–greatly detract from the potential these papers have to make a wider impact. Over the years as a Korean academic translator, I have provided Korean academic translation services to Korean graduate students. I have also done so for non-Korean readers who can’t understand the original English abstracts published with some Korean papers. I welcome inquiries from anyone who needs to understand critical information from Korean academic papers of all types.

The translation went over well. I will be in touch with more work in the near future.”

Korean patent translation

Leading Korean companies are among the most innovative in the world, and Korean scientists innovate in a variety of fields. Thanks to the structure of the Korean economy, Korean inventions are particularly focused in automobiles, petrochemicals, semiconductors, telecommunications and other electronics, biotechnology, and others. I have been translating patents for many years and count myself an expert in patent translation.

“Thank you so much, Steven.  As always, the response was quick, and one of our Korean contacts abroad says that the piece reads extremely well. Wonderful job…again!  Thanks for the good work! Kindest regards,”
