    Transcriptionist

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 1

    Reliable, accurate, and rapid completion of English transcriptions. My typing speed is 70-80 wpm, with an accuracy rate of 99%. My experience in transcription includes legal, medical, financial, IT and general. Confidentiality, accuracy and speed are my top priorities. My previous work experience includes general secretarial for 14 years, legal secretarial for five years, and office management / HR / executive assistant to CEO for three years. UK English is my mother tongue, however, I am equally familiar with US English, having resided in Florida for the past 16 years. I am an extremely accurate typist, and never promise something I cannot deliver. Of the six tests I have taken on Upwork, five of them put me in the top 10% and one in the top 20% of English and American-English skills. During my life I have lived in five different countries on three continents, which has given me with a keen ear for foreign accents.

    Transcriber // VA // Illustrator

    Philippines - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6

    I am a hard-worker with an upbeat attitude! I seek to better myself as a person and as a professional armed with a very particular and detail-oriented mindset intently focused on achieving job success through customer satisfaction. I possess a high level of analytical skills, but above all, I pride myself in being efficient and organized. I have experience in: - transcribing audio and visual material -- for which I have been praised on my accuracy and professionalism; - personal assistance particularly in fields of research, data entry, scheduling/calendar management, making inquiries through calls, creating write-ups and company reports/e-mails; - 2D/vector illustration. I am very skilled in the use of office applications, especially MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint and Google Docs. I am adept in the use of social media programs for marketing and research purposes. I am also knowledgeable in the use of Adobe CS6 and CC software, namely Photoshop, Illustrator, and AfterEffects. I want to work in jobs that will offer me opportunities to learn new skills (if not develop the ones I already possess), that will challenge me and enhance me in areas outside those of my expertise. I am very easy to work with and talk to, and I am set on doing whatever I can to help you achieve your goal! I never commit to anything I can't deliver 110%, and I always get the job done right and well above (if not within) expectation.

    Creative Writer, Editor, Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 9

    As an author myself, I know the value of a good editor; one who will be able to catch every misused word, missed punctuation or letter, unclear message, and inconsistency. The books on my shelves have notes scribbled throughout, little crossed-out pencil scratchings over words that just don't hit home, and margin-notes about missed opportunities for more powerful options. I'm here to offer this service to you BEFORE you send your precious work off into the world of publication. Everybody misses things when they're writing their own work, without fail there is something worth changing, and I'll find it for you and offer suggestions for improvement where needed. Currently, I am a Managing Editor of the Greenleaf Review Literary Magazine, where I run a team of editors to put out a magazine of student submissions on a tight deadline. Our team gets maybe three months with the materials before a final magazine is produced and I have the responsibility to make sure we all meet deadlines along the way and handle submissions in a professional and respectful manner. We have a short editing session each year and the rest of the time I'm on here looking for more projects to fill my time. I hope you'll consider letting me be a part of your process towards publication.

    Freelance Professional

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8

    I have been a full-time freelance professional since 1994. My core service areas are primarily graphic design, web design and transcription. Many of my clients are individuals who are also entrepreneurs who need basic support, such as office documents (brochures, letterhead, business cards, etc.). However, I also handle overflow for local advertising agencies who need extra help with art direction. To round out my workload I contract corporate, medical and legal transcription assignments. These range from one hour jobs to ongoing assignments. I'm currently transcribing streaming audio for C-SPAN.
