Why I Love ESL Authors

The challenge of solving the puzzle of what the author really meant to say, plus e-mails like the following from a researcher in Korea, are why I so enjoy working with ESL (English as a second language) authors:

Hi kathrine!

It has been long time after last contact. I hope everything is OK with you. Did you enjoyed your summer vacation?

My recent paper that you revised was published in [Big-Name U.S. Medical Journal] at last January 2007. It was wonderful thing for me. Thank you so much from bottom of my heart.

Now, I'd like to apply very important paper for publication in [Same Big-Name U.S. Medical Journal] again to bring previous paper to a conclusion. The published previuos paper was just the basic hypothesis for this paper. I believe in your excellent ability for making revision.


Hey, Dr. S., thank you from the bottom of my heart!

It is so great that the people you work with appreciate the job you are doing. I make less in the job I am doing now than the one I had before, but I am so much happier. There is a lot to be said for that!

That is so sweet! Having clients who appreciate what you do is more than a perk -- it's a necessity.
