Strange... Sep 22, 2016

Je m’engage à écrire de traductions correctes de documents en une langue étrangère auxquelles n’importe qui peut faire confiance.

Yes well Sep 23, 2016

if there is indeed work people like, then it's a testament to the power of marketing.

Indeed the German and French are terrible. Not to mention the English...

We'll gladly proofread and edit for you. I think by the time we're finished your English website will be shortened at least by half.

Endorsed ... with astonishment and admiration Sep 23, 2016

for being able to write French in such a non-idiomatic way.

So congratulations - he certainly fooled some of us! Personally I'm impressed that the amount of work he put into it (three versions of his website don't forget!). I'm sure we would have twigged earlier if he'd waited until next spring (somewhere between the 31 March and 2 April for example).

I remember this guy Sep 23, 2016

This is a grossly misguided attempt at search engine optimization. He's got it into his head that if he fills the internet with huge quantities of meaningless verbiage, people will notice him. They will, but for all the wrong reasons.

Isn't this the purpose of marketing? We all know who George is and that's all he cares about. He is his own publicist.

Would you choose him if you were a potential client, or recommend him to others? Isn't a publicist supposed to publicise the best image possible, not the worst? I hadn't forgotten him either, but it wasn't a good memory.

I just said there was a memory

Not really, there are also anti-campaigns or negative campaigns done purposefully by a publicist just to draw (any kind of attention) to their client, depending on context and purpose. So, their job is not always and necessarily about the best image possible.
