    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

    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

    I combine several years of extensive federal experience with a passion for thorough, clean work. In addition, my strong command of English and familiarity with a broad range of academic disciplines (particularly the social sciences and liberal arts) make me well-suited to the transcription of aural and/or handwritten material, regardless of the language involved (i.e. formal vs. informal). On each job I strive to ensure the quickest possible turnaround and highest degree of precision, per your standards. I look forward to assisting you with your transcription and editing needs.  less

    As a transcriptionist I've been working with transcripts in technical field, economy classes/lectures, teacher/student interviews and I've done several legal transcriptions, as well as medical classes/lectures. My strongest fields are technology, internet marketing, real estate and general discussions. I'm a skilful, pretty fast and accurate typist (85+ wpm) I deliver very good TAT (7 hours for 1 hour of audio, with included proofreading). I pay a lot of attention to research, when it comes to working on some things I'm not that familiar with, unknown subjects so I always strive to get the names and all the spellings correct. I also proof my work before handing it back to my clients. My usual work involves using my default/general template, placing 5-minute timestamps and excluding the usual stuttering, mumbling, repeated words and such. Everything I'm unable to hear for the first time is labeled as inaudible, most of which I can deal with in my second run through the file, proofreading. I also do occasional work involving graphic, logo and print design. Feel free to browse through my portfolio to see my past work.  less

    Your go-to transcriber and/or proofreader. Please don't hesitate to reach out and contact me. AVAILABLE FOR TRANSCRIPTION OF MORE THAN 1 HOUR OF RECORDING PER DAY! - Types 75 WPM! - Fast and high-quality, accurate transcription - Verbatim to clean-read transcription - Subtitling transcription - Proofreads transcripts - Researches terms and proper names - Great English active-listening and typing skills - Skilled and experienced in using Microsoft Office A career goal is to be able to utilize my skills and experiences in serving the company, co-workers, and consumers. I am a graduate of BS Nursing and registered professional nurse in the Philippines with complete training in the field. For the last three years, I've been transcribing on a daily basis. From the day I started transcribing, I have loved the profession, and I am learning to love it more. It is a way for me to stay at home with my two toddlers while I earn to support our needs. Since then, I have improved my skills and made a lot of clients happy and kept them with me. I am a big proponent of continuous learning. I find that I learn a lot with transcribing and proofreading, and so I believe making transcripts is a worthwhile job that enables me to earn and learn and to help you as a client. On transcripts (and all outputs), I am ridiculously into details and grammar and punctuation. It is irritating for me to see written works with simple grammatical or punctuation errors. I believe in simplicity and neatness when it comes to written works. I put a great deal of effort into making neat and accurate works. It is my pleasure to be given the opportunity to work and showcase my skills and talents, and I am always looking forward in building a long-term working relationship. I hope the next one I build is with you. All the best! *** Sharing happiness and joy through the littlest of things... and here, one client at a time. ***  less
