About

Hi! I'm Marsha, and 8ight59 is my personal branding.
Born and raised in Singapore, I grew up speaking both English and Mandarin.

Then the Hallyu Wave happened.

I fell in love ♡ with the Korean language as well as its country and culture.
I became addicted to Korean TV programmes; in fact, I first began studying Korean because I wanted to be able to watch them without subtitles!

Thanks to my passion for the language, I have:

Aside from that, I have a Diploma in Visual Communication with a major in Publication Design, and a BA in Web Communication and Communication and Media Studies.
I worked for two years as an in-house designer for a retail MNC, where I designed, copy wrote, proofread, and copyedited in-house direct mailers and communication visuals and materials. Upon completing my studies in Korea, I started freelancing as a Korean to English translator. I have also worked for almost two years at a Korean broadcasting company where I created English subtitles for Korean programmes.

With my desire to reduce, if not eliminate, the language barrier of content, I have been providing Korean to English translation services since 2014. To date, I have translated over 37,000 words and 60 pages, and transcribed over 165 hours! (Not that anyone's counting.)

While I specialise in general and media and entertainment content, I have a wide range of experience in advertising/marketing, educational, business, and legal documents as well. I also provide transcription, subtitling, copyediting, proofreading and desktop publishing services.
