Transcriptor - Translator English-French

France - Last active: 09/30/2014 - Tests: 1

Well, my goal is to work in French transcription or translation English-French. I know how to follow rules and instructions and send the work in time. I am determined to do the best possible work possible, answering the needs of customers. Transcription work takes effort rigor, attention and speed. These are qualities that characterize me. I'm known to write very fast, and I use a computer every day, it's a tool that I control. Anyway, I would like to gain experience in transcription, because I'm new at this kind of work. Before, I was working in research in human computer interaction.
