    Mary A. Agency Contractor

    Cost-Effective and Reliable Transcriptionist

    Philippines - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 9

    For the last seven years, I completed hundreds of transcription projects of any kind and length. I make sure that my clients get the best value for their money and their trust. My value propositions include but are not limited to the following: - I work with my clients almost seamlessly. I don't annoy my clients with stupid questions. - I'm good at following client's directions and I go back to those at least before I start working on their materials and before I finally submit my work. - If there's any problem with the audio, I troubleshoot it instinctively. - I'm not a fan of expediency. I proofread my work at least twice. - I prioritize reputation and integrity over getting paid without working hard for that payment. - I am selective of my clients the way I'm selective of the people I hang around with. Just because someone has money and has audio or video, I'll go for his project. It doesn't happen. I check the material first. It's not a matter of whether there's a slight problem with the audio in the technical aspect (that I can do something about) but I look at the content. For sure, I don't transcribe for people who don't have better things to do.
