    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.
