Dear Chan,
I hope you’re doing well. I’m just writing to ask for your help in the translation of a Korean manuscript which is related to my doctoral thesis work.
As you already know, I’m currently enrolled in a Ph. D course here in Kansas University and my topic of research is the role of aristocracy in medieval Korean society. I’ve recently received a set of manuscripts from Seoul national museum related to my dissertation topic, but unfortunatelythey are in Korean and their translation is unavailable. As you can imagine, these scripts are very important for my work and I need to get them translated to move ahead with my research.
That’s why I am hoping that you could help me by translating these documents into English. There are about 50 pages altogether and it would be great if you could complete the work and send it back to me by next month. My professor has earmarked a budget for this and the university would pay you 2 dollars per page for this activity.
I know there are multiple professional translation services available in the city but this content is confidential and important for my upcoming research paper. Thus I needed a friend to do this for me. Moreover, I’ve full confidence in your Korean proficiency based on the fact that you completed your post graduation in the Korean language from Seoul University. So, your proficiency in Korean and discreetness is a unique combination, which is why I need your urgent help.
Do let me know if you have any questions and give my regards to Suzy.
Best regards,
Ankush
