Translation, Transcription, Text

Germany - Last active: 1 day 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: 25 days 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!

Philippines - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 18 - Portfolio: 2

It was in 2009 when my daughter introduced me to oDesk. She, being a young fulltime mom then, realized how convenient and more rewarding it was to be able to work and at the same time be home and take care of her baby. I have, for more than 25 years, focused my energies on fulltime mothering, homeschooling and ministry myself, so I can't agree with her more. I also find oDesk as a wonderful opportunity to combine my family and ministry roles with my desire to further enhance my personal skills. My experience with oDesk thus far has been very rewarding, in terms of personal growth in knowledge and skills, and also in terms of opportunity to develop good working relationships with clients. My objective is simply to provide high-quality and dependable service. I am a diligent worker, preferring to work independently but delivering quick and timely service.
