Singapore - Last active: 02/18/2014 - Tests: 8

Hi there! I'm from the ever-blazing little island called Singapore and I wouldn't be the least surprised if you do not know of our existence in the Asia Pacific. A few oDesk-styled introduction about me: - I am an extremist, more towards a "perfectionist" - I normally type 100 words-per-minute - It's compulsory for me to be bilingual (ENG/CHN) - I take roughly 5 minutes to transcribe 1 audio minute because I proofread my work. I have work with many international accents. If the audio is squeaky clean then I'll be able to give you a faster and prompt turn-around time - I love transcribing! So much knowledge is shared as I transcribe. - I do voice overs and audios in Mandarin / Chinese - I do voice overs and audios in Singlish (it's awesome) - I'm always found on Skype! I take pride in all that I am tasked to do so please try not to request for works to be submitted by an absurd timeframe; my work might end up being messy and I will self-destruct for submitting slipshod work. If you're looking for a personable and trustworthy assistant, then look no further! (kinda cheesy, my bad) P.S - My passions are FPS, MMORPG, RPG-gaming, swooning over animals and cooking crabs for fun. Cheers!

Germany - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 4

I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.

Transcription Professional & Data Entry Specialist

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7

I have been working Data Entry and Transcription for over 20 years. Working these jobs for so long has enabled me to gain excellent accuracy, speed and time management skills. I key 80-90 wpm. Keying at this rate allows a 1 hour audio to be keyed in 3.5 to 4 hours if quality of audio is decent and easily understandable. English is my primary language but I have found that accents have not been a problem at all. I have worked with Chinese, Japanese, Australian, English, Canadian, French and Spanish accents. I have no problem with strict deadlines and can work anytime day or night in order to get the job done. I pride myself on quick turnaround times as well as exceeding expectations on finished projects. My goal is always to deliver within 24 hours of hiring. Customer Service is something that I believe should always be conducted at highest level. I am happy to check in at given times to provide updates as client needs. I pride myself on open communication at all times. As always complete discretion is mandatory and I have no problem deleting all files as soon as work is complete and accepted by client. I will never use work in my portfolio unless given explicit consent by client. I have all the tools needed for transcription; headphones, pedal and Express Scribe Pro. I do not use any speech-to-text software as the end product is not as accurate as I need my jobs to be. Please feel free to contact me anytime with your Transcription needs!
