I'm not one of those people who are being satisfied with the simple things. In life I have learned to respect the deadlines, follow the instructions and use them to get to the best possible result. I do not accept a job solely for financial gain but because I want to improve and perfect my knowledges. From my employer I expect to provide me a totaly freedom, because a perfectionist like me knows very well how to do his job. I like to improve myself everyday, learn unusal and non common things. My biggest passion are languages. I am fluent in Italian, English and Spanish. I'm a professor of Italian and Spanish and I have a strong desire to prove myself. I would like to open language school, which will be dominated by Italian and Oriental languages​​, above all Hindi. I have extensive experience in translation and I'm a person that will meet all your expectations in terms of translation. I speak Italian from the age of seven and the majority of Italian speakers do not believe that I was not born in Italy. This is a brief summary of my experiences and expectations, and you should contact me if you are offering a job in the field of Italian language. My primary interest is the Italian language but I'm also interested in jobs like: data entry, administrative support, blog writing, article writing, virtual assistent, web design, autoCAD modelling etc. My expressed qualities are optimistic spirit, communication skills, accuracy and extraordinary verbal skills.

Transcriptionist - VA - Superlative Service

United Kingdom - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 9

Stop here for a fantastic transcriptionist who makes YOU look good on paper! Whatever you've recorded - dissertation interviews, lectures, brainstorming sessions, conferences, meetings, workshops, video sales pitches and tutorials, voicemails, an upcoming presentation or your next eBook - I can get your audio into written format and ready to travel onwards toward its final destination. Your audio content is a reflection on your project and so is the transcription of it. Choose someone who works as hard as you do: - Dedicated, full-time transcriptionist with professional software and equipment - Native English speaker who fears no dialect of her mother tongue - Fantastic spelling, grammar and formatting skills - Friendly and accommodating, with sharp ears and fast hands - My transcriptions look great with or without the audio - I care about your privacy and will sign an NDA to that effect My goal is to deliver to you high-quality transcripts that inspire us both. You can trust me to treat your project with kid gloves while delivering 100% of the time on your expectations. Check my portfolio to see examples of how great your content is going to look. I am often open to negotiating flat fees for bigger projects or regular clients. Please know, however, that my rate is quite fair for the industry. Poor recordings, more than two speakers, additional editing or excessive formatting can cost a little or a lot more, depending on your needs. I can give you an accurate estimate if you send me your audio. I look forward to speaking with you!
