    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

    You want your written material to shine -- to catch the reader's eye, keep their attention, and get your message across. I can help make sure that nothing detracts from that process, whether it be awkward word usage, grammatical errors, or inconsistency in format. A unique combination of experience in copy editing, proofreading, teaching English as a Second Language, and Japanese-English translation, along with years spent as an administrative assistant, gives me stellar skills in both the nuts and bolts of language (grammar and spelling, vocabulary usage, and appearance) and larger issues of voice, overall flow, and nuance. I've helped craft sales materials and museum exhibits, novels and books on Buddhism, academic and Web articles and presentations. My clients are uniformly impressed by my thoroughness and speed, and tell me my services contribute greatly to the quality of the finished product. AVAILABILITY: Monday through Friday (in U.S.), 9 am to 6 pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT - 8), flexible depending on deadlines.  less
