    My name is Tina. I am located in the Midwest and have been a transcriptionist since 1999. I have experience in a wide variety of content including, but not limited to, financial, legal, and medical. I've transcribed such things as podcasts, YouTube videos, focus groups, financial analyst meetings, government hearings, interviews, court proceedings, and depositions, to name a few. I have experience with accents. I have my own equipment, and I conduct business in a professional, confidential manner with attention to detail and a high degree of accuracy. On average, 60 minutes of audio takes about 4 hours to transcribe. My accuracy rate is above 99%. Services offered: Transcription of prerecorded audio file(s) in American English done in Microsoft Word format. (Note: All other languages spoken will be noted as to have been spoken, but will not be translated/transcribed.) Transcripts are done as clean verbatim unless true verbatim is specifically requested. Clean Verbatim: The omission of non-verbal utterances such as uh, umm, ;double-doubled; words and st-st-stutters;. True Verbatim: The uh and umm, double-doubled, st-st-stutters; and other non-verbal utterances are transcribed. I have templates that I use, but if you have your own that you would prefer, that's fine too. Turnaround time is negotiable. Just let me know how soon you need it, and I will do my best to accommodate your request. I would prefer to be paid based on the length of audio file per audio minute. That way I know exactly what to expect to be paid and you know exactly what it's going to cost you to have the transcription done. I would be willing to transcribe no more than 2 minutes of audio as a test without pay. Contact me if you want a high degree of accuracy, dependability, and confidentiality. Thanks much!!  less

    If you need reliable, affordable and exceptional services, then you've arrived at the right profile. I offer: proofreading & editing, writing & online research, reporting/journalism, transcribing, and social media management. I am fully committed to each task that I take on.

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

    I am here to offer you my expert services as a transcriber. I have been a transcriptionist for almost four years on several different projects as well as with a few people for long-term work. I've worked on books, webinars, podcasts, radio shows, interviews, conferences; a little bit of everything, both general and medical. You can see from my feedback how happy my past clients are with my deliverables. Rates are based on number of speakers, quality of audio, and turnaround time. Prices are fair, because you certainly get what you pay for in this industry. You require quality, professional, quickly delivered documents that require no editing and are public-facing ready. That is exactly what I can provide for you. Also, please note that the hourly rate listed is for an hour of transcribed audio, NOT an hourly rate I charge for transcribing. You're paying for a completed product, not how long it takes to get it completed. My turn-around time is fast; usually 48 hours or less, depending on the length of the audio. I can provide verbatim documents or those with ready-to-read edits. I do not use automated software as I do not believe it returns a quality product. Please contact me today for a quote!

    My overall goal is to provide quality transcripts on time and on budget. The quality of my work speaks for itself. I never take on a job I cannot finish. With several thousand jobs under my belt in 15 years I have never missed a deadline. Feedback is an excellent indicator of the service and quality you can expect to get! I have many repeat clients and great reviews to prove it! One of the biggest mistakes companies can make is sacrificing the quality of the work in order to save a few dollars. In the end you will spend more time and money trying to get it corrected. I DO NOT use speech to text software as it is not reliable and will require quite a bit of editing and proofing to make it accurate. Beware of providers who state they can get your job done quickly because they utilize this type of software! I proof all of my work prior to submitting and I capture every word! I make every effort to satisfy all of my clients needs when it comes to budget and turnaround. If there are any necessary changes I am more than happy to make them! Invite my bid today! Not all transcriptionists are created equal so make sure you're getting the best quality product for the price and with a provider you can rely on time and time again! Is the output customizable? Absolutely! I offer most clients a standard format with intelligent verbatim unless otherwise specified. However, if you would like a specific format please let me know, I am happy to accommodate and I follow any guidelines for formatting standards your company has already established. Am I a professional provider? I try my very best to meet all of my clients demands in a professional manner. I realize that you cannot please everyone but if you experience any issues along the way please feel free to notify me. I am available to communicate through the Workroom or email throughout the day and evening to ensure your job is completed to your satisfaction. I simply ask that you make yourself available for questions or concerns along the way as well to ensure work gets finished in a timely manner and to your specifications. Why don't you see any samples in my portfolio? My clients trust me with their content and to ensure their privacy and their confidentiality my work is not used as a sample. If you'd like to see what I'm made of then please request a short one to two minute sample before awarding the job. I am more than happy to submit you with a short sample to show you the quality of work I deliver. Why are my rates above the norm? I feel that 15 years experience warrants a fair price. Sixty minutes of audio can take up to four hours to transcribe and that's if the audio quality is good. Investing time in your job is my mission but it does come with a price. My time is valuable and so is my clients. I aim to please and I get the job done; no excuses! If I commit to a project then it's my guarantee not only on the turnaround but the quality. Today there are so many providers bidding with low rates. What can you expect with this? From time to time you do get lucky and find a provider that can deliver good quality output for a very low price but many times you get let down time after time with either no results or a poor quality transcript meaning you invest more money in another provider to get it done right. If you're looking for low budget then I'm not the right fit for you or your company! You also run the risk of having your project shipped out to another provider that you may or may not know about and when delivered it hasn't been proofed or reviewed; is that money well spent? So, why should you consider me for your next transcription project? I can guarantee you that you will receive low-ball rates, but remember that you often get what you pay for. My rates are described upfront so you always know what you're getting. With me, there are no surprises. I offer top-quality work within a reasonable turnaround and I work weekends and holidays to ensure your deadlines are met without charging additional fees. I know how to do my job! I do not need supervision and detailed instructions to provide clients with a product they can be happy to share with colleagues and other firms. Are you tired of the excuses as to why your project wasn't delivered on time or to the quality you expected? I know you're busy professional and I want you to know you can trust me with your next project. If I say I can do it then I deliver. Stop investing your money in a provider who gives you excuse after excuse and fails to deliver. If you want it done right the first time then I'm your gal!  less

    If you're looking for a transcriptionist that can handle any transcription work quickly and accurately, look no further than my profile! I'm one of the fastest typists on oDesk, and the following are two videos of me typing at 160 WPM: http://goo.gl/34u1tu and http://goo.gl/kzlN4d Do you want the job done the first time, rather than having another transcriptionist waste your time with excuses or sub-standard work? Do you need solid communication while your transcription is being completed? I'm fully justified in saying that I'm the right contractor for your needs, and I always do the job right the first time! You'll see from my feedback history that I'm a highly-talented transcriptionist, and that I always leave my clients happy. Why pay for cheap contractors when there's a good chance they won't even complete your transcription assignment? Eventually, you're going to have to bite the bullet, and I implore you to skip the extra step and hire who you know will deliver you a high-quality transcript well within your deadline. I have 6 years of professional experience being a transcriptionist, and have transcribed meetings and prepared minutes during my last job. I trust that I'll be able to satisfy your transcription needs and leave you as happy as the many clients I've served over the last half a decade. Previously a student of Economics, I'm only interested in delivering you the best quality of transcription in record time and nothing less!  less
