    Transcriptionist

    Croatia - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I'm a skilful, fast and, above all an accurate typist (85+ wpm). I can deliver your files very quickly, My standard TAT is 6 hours for 1 hour of audio, with included proofreading. I also pay a lot of attention to research, when it comes to working in areas I'm not that familiar with, such as unknown subjects/topics so I always strive to get the names and all the spellings correct. All my work is proofread before handing it back to my clients. I've been dealing with transcriptions in technical field, economy classes/lectures, teacher/student interviews, research related interviews, legal and court transcriptions, as well as medical classes/lectures. 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.
