Kalina Tyrkiel dropped by for a chat about writing in English as a non-native speaker. Tune in to hear about the methods and tools you can use to succeed in UX writing, even if you have another mother tongue.
Her conclusion is that being a non-native UX writer is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, many non-natives face challenges related to grammar and fluency. On the other hand, those who use English as a second language have a natural feel for plain language and localization issues.
