    Voice Over Artist/Digital Nomad

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    PLEASE NOTE: I will be traveling from about July 28 through July 31st so will not be available for new work these days. Once I have arrived at my destination, I will update my availability. Thank you. Over the last 10 years, 4 of those years working via oDesk and now Upwork I have been a voice over artist and developed a wide range of different voices for a growing clientele. From upbeat radio tag promos for sales, medical voice overs for employee instructional videos, corporations that need a voice for power point presentations, voice for You Tube, audio book recordings, on hold phone message recordings, Instructional Design, audio production/editing my list keeps growing and I keep learning as I go and do my very best for clients always. Clients have been many and varied from large corporations to small businesses and start ups. 24 - 48 hour turn around time depending on length of projects and what I am already working on. NOTE: My hourly rate posted is ONLY for administrative type work, not voice overs. For voice overs I am more than glad to give potential clients a quote. Clients usually pay as a bonus, milestone or fixed rate for these. I will do two re-dos of recordings at no charge. After the second there is a nominal fee. I also welcome the opportunity to assist clients with personal assisting, email handling, transcription, etc. however my first choice is and will always be voice over projects. My ONLY three primary ways of responding to potential new clients are through Upwork, direct email, skype and directly by phone. I am fortunate to have great clients that have become long term and continue using my services. I absolutely love Upwork and the projects-both challenging and easy that have come my way and continue to as a result. It has been and continues to be a wonderful journey into the world of freelance.

    Transcriptionist, Editor/Proofreader and CS Rep

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a transcriber with a recent passion for the work. I pride myself on professionalism, accuracy, and my ability to meet or exceed deadlines. I have worked on a number of transcription projects with a variety of topics, accents, and final editing (with and without background noise, completely professional instructional videos and off-the-cuff recordings). I am flexible with my work time and willing to negotiate rate and deadlines to meet your needs. In general, I work on transcripts with intelligent verbatim and a standard format outlining speakers by name (if supplied) unless custom formatting and word-for-word transcription is requested. You won't see samples of my work in my portfolio because my clients trust me with their projects and their confidentiality. However, I am able to supply a few samples upon request and those which I do have are from clients who have given me permission to share. Since UpWork does not offer transcription tests, I am also happy to transcribe a short file (up to five minutes long) of your choosing to display my work. My excellent feedback and my experience on UpWork should provide you with some level of confidence that I am a professional freelancer and communication is the absolute key for me. Working online means communication is the most important thing because we can't sit down and catch up at the end of the week or walk by each others' office and check in here and there, so I value a great, open line of dialogue between myself and my client. My primary focus on UpWork has been transcription, but I am also available for editing and proofreading, general online customer service and voice over projects. I have educational and professional experience in all three of these fields. PLEASE NOTE: My profile lists me as living in the US. This is because my mailing address is a US Army Post Office box (just like any other PO box), but I am currently living in Germany with my husband who is in the Army. We are in the Berlin time zone. I am typically available for work Monday through Friday from 7:30 am through 6:00 pm Berlin time and most often I'm available later and on weekends.
