Working with a client in Germany this week on a white paper about m-payment systems — that is, systems that give your mobile phone the same functionality as a credit card, so that you can literally wave it in front of a merchant’s credit card terminal and charge something automatically to your card.
I’ve been writing a lot of original text and also rewriting a lot of the client’s material (he’s writing in English, even though he’s a native German speaker). Here’s one of his recent comments about my work:
I read all the document. I like your text and style! I wish I had such an English!
In a later email he says:
I really like your smooth text!
Dear client, I really like your smooth emails! You are the coolest and I love working for you!
