    Hi,

    I am non-native and my English is not good so I am outsourcing my articles to someone else but he is also non-native and I am not satisfied with his articles, therefore, I am planning to write down articles myself after learning some more grammar and writing skills. I am scared that my articles will be a garbage but I feel I should give it a try maybe I will improve after time.

    Just want to ask you guys how is my English and is there any possibilities that i can write it myself.

    thanks.

    Watch your comma placement and run-ons. Other than that, seems passable. Here's a rewrite:

    BEFORE

    I am non-native and my English is not so good. I'm outsourcing my articles to someone else, but he is also non-native. I am not satisfied with his articles, therefore I am planning to write articles myself after improving my grammar and writing skills. I'm scared my articles might be garbage, but I feel I should give it a try. Maybe my English will improve over time.

    Your English is a lot better than you think. Just keep working at it. Good to see people trying versus throwing their hands up and outsourcing everything. Good luck.

    This is my version/correction:

    I'm a non-native English speaker, my English is not that good, so i'm outsourcing my article writing to someone else, however he isn't a native speaker either. I'm not satisfied with the quality of his work, therefore, i'm planning to write the articles myself after improving my grammar/writing skills. I'm scared that my articles will be garbage, but i feel, i should give it a try, maybe i will improve with time.

    I just want to ask you guys, how is my English, and if there's any possibility that i can write (the articles) myself.

    Tips:
    Pay attention to mid-sentence punctuation.
    Mid-sentence the pronouns (e.g. i, you) start with lower case, no capital "i".
    Don't be afraid of using contractions (e.g. i am -> i'm) in informal situations.

    Not everything is wrong grammatically what i've corrected or re-written, i just prefer it that way.
    Worry not, your version is already better than what you get from most so called "native" writers.

    Disclaimer: I'm not a native speaker either. :)

    So, is there any willing, native English speaker, who can correct my mistakes? :p
    Edit: Nvm, Sherbert already corrected it above.

    Hi, I Tried to use google translator and Grammarly to translate an article from Hindi to English (With Manual Correction Myself). Can anyone tell me, is it good or bad. I did that because I can write easily in Hindi as compare to English.




    Who can say what is happening inside the earth? But somewhere, there may be a flame flowing, which, after bursting the surface of the earth, comes out of the molten form of volcano magma, or comes out as a continuous flowing stream of hot water and makes us wonder. I went out with the desire to see such hot water sources near the metropolis of Mumbai.


    After seeing the Ganeshpuri, I came to a city called Vajreshwari, located about two kilometers from there. It is a small town, which is situated in the foothills of Mandakini. It is said about the elevation of Mandakini Mountains that it was created due to some volcanic eruption in the postwar era.


    This town has been named after the goddess Vajreshwari. Many local residents, whose houses or land are near the temple, have started the car parking business which is a great source of their income. By parking my car in a similar parking place, I went to see the temple.


    In front of the temple are shops of flowers, sarees, puja stuff etc. At the same place, there are also auto rickshaws available to go to the surrounding area. Shoppers who sell flowers usually help in keeping slippers, etc. Because it is also beneficial for their business, but the temple management has also kept sandal-shoe stand on the shore after crossing the main door.

    Avoid Google Translate for longer pieces. They will butcher your writing to the point where Grammarly won't know what to properly do.

    My version. Similar to @HoNeYBiRD's

    I'm a non-native English speaker, my English is not that good, so I'm outsourcing my article writing to someone else, however, he isn't a native speaker either. I'm not satisfied with the quality of his work, therefore, I'm planning to write the articles myself after improving my grammar/writing skills.

    Your english isnt that bad. What I would do if I where you is write your own articles, then maybe pay someone to proofread the articles for you.

    Honestly, your not that bad at all. You just need some practice and you'll be fine. Someone gave you the best advice already..

    Write for yourself and pay a proof reader/editor like @blizz3010 said.

    Yea, your the person who is going to write the best content for your site. Even if when you write it, it's not perfect. You can easily pay a proof reader/editor to make it sound more fluent and overall just sound better. If that makes sense. I think you'll be fine.
