    I'm a professional transcriptionist with several years of experience in the transcribing field in a number of subject areas. I produce high quality, accurate transcriptions with fast turn around times for my clients. In addition to my transcription work, am a Cambridge CELTA certified English teacher with academic editing and tutoring experience at the university level. I have extensive experience with accurately interpreting diverse international accents of all English levels and covering complex technical, industrial, financial and business related subject matter for several major publications. I have also completed transcriptions for the purposes of academic research on a number of different topics. What I like most about transcribing is the opportunity it affords me to increase my knowledge of different subject areas as I work, so I am always happy to take on new and different projects! All work is 100% transcribed, proof read and edited by me, never outsourced, delegated or machine transcribed. I research all unfamiliar terminology to ensure a high level of accuracy. All work is confidential and I am happy to sign a non disclosure agreement, should your require one. Jobs up to 1 hour of good quality audio can be completed within 24 hours (or less). I am always available and happy to work with you to meet your deadlines. I am confident I will be able to help you complete your project to a very high standard and look forward to working with you soon! **To ensure confidentiality and privacy, I do not use client work as portfolio samples. If you would like to verify the quality of my work, please request a 1-2 min sample before awarding the job.**  less

I ensure: ✔ Accuracy, clarity, and attention to detail ✔ Prompt and straightforward communication ✔ Quick turnaround without compromising on quality I am available for both short and long-term projects. Please feel free to contact me for any queries or if you are ready to receive dedication & excellence. Look forward to working with you! _________________________________________________________________________________ [EDUCATION, BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE] I graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism from Rhodes University, South Africa. ✪ Specializations: Writing & Editing and New Media. ✪ Academic Major: English Literature. ✪ Intensive course: Web Design & Development. ✪ Others: French 1&2, Modern Fiction, and English Language & Linguistics. Due to my location, many people are doubtful about my language skills. However, I have been verified as a native English speaker (with expert status) by the Duolingo Test Center; I grew up with US English and was educated in UK English, so I can easily work with both. I've collaborated with numerous British, North American and Australian clients, from whom I’ve received excellent feedback. I have worked with a variety of individual professionals; startups and small businesses; private firms and consultancies; large companies and organizations such as the United Nations; and several NGOs & NPOs. From these experiences, I have gained the following skills and expertise. _________________________________________________________________________________ [SERVICE DESCRIPTION] *Proofreading & Editing* High-quality writing is invaluable. No matter what I provide—proofreading, copy-editing, content editing, or line editing (heavy editing)—I guarantee error-free work. Not only do I correct spelling and grammar, but I also ensure consistency in style, tone, and structure. Additionally, if necessary or required by you, I rephrase/rewrite sentences. Each punctuation mark, word and paragraph is carefully reviewed for readability; and I always keep your target audience in mind when proofreading and editing. I have worked on various texts: • Government bids, grants proposals, and corporate documents; • Academic works (essays, dissertations, theses); • Scientific articles and papers (published in PNAS), and technical reports; • Ebooks and printed books; • Websites, blog posts, and social media marketing materials; • Business plans and presentations; • CVs, resumes and personal statements; • Catalogues, emails, letters, and more. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Writing* I can research and write on almost any subject, for both online and offline platforms: news articles; blog and social media posts; emails, letters, marketing materials, etc. I usually don’t offer ghostwriting services. My written work has been published on global platforms such as a United Nations blog, United Press International, and Deutsche Welle. My articles have also been printed in numerous publications like Down To Earth (Indian magazine), The Lowvelder (South African newspaper), and several local newsletters. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Transcribing* I provide either a verbatim or clean transcript, and can transcribe almost any accent in English: American, Canadian, British, Indian, Australian, South African, and more. I have transcribed a range of audio and video recordings: journalistic interviews, focus group discussions (with up to 9 speakers), private counselling sessions, advertisements, and so forth. The transcriptions are always double-checked for accuracy. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Social Media Marketing* I currently manage multiple social media accounts for individuals and companies. I post regular, consistent, and carefully researched updates on social networks; monitor relevant online conversations and trends; and respond to and interact with fans & customers.  less
