Perfect page in English

by 2 comments
I'm planning to build couple sites in English language.I target for visitors from America and West-Europe.The problem is that English is not my native language and my English knowledge is not the best.
Because of I'm planning to sell certain products and services,I regard that is flippantly build the sites in bad English.I considered engage translator or so-called proofreaders services.I want that my site(s) be built(written) 100 percent professionally.I desire, when someone from English speaking area visitors visits my site,may think out that site is written by born Englishman.
In the other hand,I am not quite sure that local translators can do this job perfect,just like an native Englishmen would do it.One of them(sites),I would update daily.What do you recommend in that case?
Just another thing.If my name should be mentioned on the site,do you think that Est-Europe,Russian and similar names may cause negative affect to costumers.If yes,should I avoid to mention it(my name) in signature or wherever or use fake name from English language aria?

    I would suggest that you make your first port of call one of the freelance bidding sites (Elance, Guru etc.). They all have sections where you can hire editors/proofreaders fairly inexpensively. 'Test' a few proofreaders by giving them small assignments and then getting someone to double-check their work. I know this sounds a bit tedious but in the long run you will be able to build up a 'stable' of proofreaders that you can be comfortable with.

    The above is a good 'entry level' suggestion. As your business grows you should probably move towards making a more permanent arrangement with an individual proofreader.

    As far as using your own name is concerned, if people perceive that you are offering good value the 'foreingness' of your name will be of no concern to them. Having said that, using a pen or business name would be perfectly acceptable.

    I applaud you for being so "intentional" at putting out a quality site that reads well for its intended audience.

    One suggestion, to save you some money, is to possibly post the work that needs to be done in this forum and have someone do some simple proofreading.

    Your English writing is very good! It really wouldn't be too much work for the average Warrior to make some corrections to your salespage and it would certainly be cheaper than hiring a professional proofreader.

    Keep up the great work,

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
