United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

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!!

Germany - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 4

I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.
