Need attention of an educated native English speaker

Postby sphairos » Tue Nov 05, 2013 11:18 pm

Dear friends,

As an Indologist and Buddhist scholar I am currently applying for an important research grant, and I need some educated native English speaker with some knowledge of Buddhism or Buddhology to check my English in my outline of the research project. As my project is related to the Early Buddhism perhaps there will be something of interest for the academically interested in the Early Buddhism's history and philology. I have only two weeks to check my English. The case is just 2 essays: 5-page-one and 2-page-one. I'd be so grateful to you...

If you're looking primarily for proofreading, I'd be willing to look over the material for you and offer suggestions. Seven pages of material doesn't sound like it would terribly overwhelm my reading schedule.

Of course, there may be many more qualified individuals here who might also be interested in helping. Feel free to send me a private message if you want to discuss it with me further.
