Linco Global’s consulting business has been carried out under the trading name Knowledge Pen, starting in January 2010 in London, United Kingdom. In 2010, the company began to offer editing, proofreading and translation services to clients the UK and South Korea. In 2011, Knowledge Pen launched its website www.knowledgepen.com. Also, during that year, consulting services were added to the company’s activities. This was mainly influenced by the understanding that our clients often required a more structured critique and discipline in completing their projects – something that simple editing or translation could not provide.
In 2012-2013, we conducted a series of research methodology lectures and seminars for university students in the UK. These research methodology seminars and lectures are now firmly on the company's schedule in South Korea. That is because research methodology provides a framework for any type of research. Also, identifying research methods appropriate for a particular research project is crucial for conducting a meaningful and valid research.
In February 2014, the company branched out to Seoul, South Korea, under the name Jisik Pen. ‘Jisik’ is translated as ‘knowledge’ from Korean. South Korean clients can visit the company's office located at the following address: 8th Floor Beopmusahye-guan, 651 Nonheyon-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul 135-824.
