Creative Writer, Singer, Voice Talent, and Photogr...

United Kingdom - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 13 - Portfolio: 15

Canadian living in London. I am enthusiastic, energetic, creative, and passionate about every new task I take on. I have a passion for the English language and love creative writing, editing, and any project that allows me to be imaginative with words while still making use of excellent spelling, grammar, and punctuation (I'm a bit of a stickler in that regard!). I have years of photography and photo-editing experience, professional training as a classical and opera singer (and a variety of other genres), experience working with children, visual merchandising experience, and many, many years spent in retail honing my customer service skills. I am hardworking, highly motivated, reliable and responsible, with a desire to excel in all that I do. While I've got a lot of experience under my belt, there is so much more to gain, so I am always eager to learn new skills and expand my knowledge.

Transcription / 97 WPM / Perfectionist / Reliable...

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 20

Objective: To provide 100% accurate transcriptions of audio/video in a timely manner (the time frame to be decided by the client). I will follow whatever style guide the client selects. My profile hourly rate is per audio/video hour, not per labor hour. I have recently raised my rate from $75 per hour to $100 per hour when comparing what work I typically do to what TranscriptionWing charges for similar work. Using their calculator at http://www.transcriptionwing.com/price.html, for 60 minutes of good quality audio with no accents and identifying speakers, they estimate $107.40 for delivery in 5 business days. Typically I deliver transcripts for audio with foreign accents and audio challenges within one day for 60 minutes of audio. Their estimated price for comparable work is $209.40. So my current rate is quite a bargain especially when you consider that I give specialized attention to every client, tailoring the transcript to their specifications instead of using a standard catch-all format that some companies use. Raising my previous rate of $1.25 per audio minute to my current rate of $1.67 per audio minute is still a bargain compared to CastingWords.com. CastingWords charges $2.50 per minute for a 1 day TAT, $1.50 per minute for a 6 day TAT, and $1.00 per minute as their budget rate. I normally have a 1 day or less TAT for good quality audio/video lengths of up to 2 hours (American accents), as either strict verbatim or slightly edited verbatim, completely proofread, delivered in .doc format. I am willing to negotiate for specific assignments, however. My current AWPM is 97 with 99% accuracy. I currently transcribe at around 4 minutes per audio/video minute for good quality audio/video. I am a perfectionist, and I thrive in work where perfection is highly valued. I am steadily working towards my goal of 260 WPM with 100% accuracy. I want to perfect my transcription skills, meaning to transcribe the final copy of an audio/video in real time. The industry standard is one hour per 15 minutes of audio. So my goal is to transcribe 15 minutes of audio/video in 15 minutes flat, with 100% accuracy (correct formatting, spelling, grammar, punctuation). I am a native speaker of American English and transcribe with American spellings. I use _The Oxford Guide to World English_ to help me with other accents. While working for CastingWords, I transcribed British, Australian, and some other world accents. I am familiar with speakers from India. I can transcribe audio with multiple speakers, as I had done for CastingWords. I have specialized knowledge in the Internet marketing, music, mathematics, and education fields. I also have great knowledge of the King James Version of the Bible. In the near future, I plan to earn a degree in Medical Transcription and earn the title of Certified Medical Transcriptionist. Besides my specialties, I have a wide range of knowledge over many subjects, from sciences to computer technology and video games, and many others. I have good skills in researching unknown terms, and I love to learn new things everyday.

Freelance writer and editor

United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 4

I have been writing proficiently for over a decade with experience in journalism, legal research and writing, blogging, and copy editing. My four years of experience in the field of journalism not only left me with an impeccable sense for writing, but I also learned to use programs like Quark and InDesign for publication formatting. As a former layout editor, I understand the impetus in meeting a deadline. Writing has been a big component of my academic and professional career. In college, I provided guidance for struggling students as an on-campus writing tutor. When I wasn't in the library fixing syntax and grammar, I was in the newsroom fulfilling my duties as a content, layout, and copy editor. As an Instructional Technology Assistant at Carnegie Mellon University, I was tasked with writing up reports pertaining to my observations and duties. I studied American law for two years, learning in that time how to successfully navigate case law and other written jurisprudence as it pertains to an assignment. In my capacity as a risk manager with an insurance firm, I wrote reports detailing the extent of any given client's financial options within the legal confines of the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. Given my extensive writing background, I can offer to: - proofread and edit your papers, essays, resumes, cover letters, manuscripts, templates, etc - create original content - write articles, essays, or papers - research and present a given subject - analyze policy text - offer creative input - transcribe audio or scanned files to text My background suits me for a wide variety of writing and editing work. Whether your composition calls for innovation or boilerplate formatting, I have the skills necessary to accommodate such requests. I am familiar with APA, MLA, and Chicago format styles.
