    Transcription is something I already have experience with. I’ve done work in this particular field “offline” but since I got handful of remarks that I am good at it I have decided to make a business out of it. That is why I created a profile on oDesk. I’m skillful, and have a C1 CEF certificate (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) Also I’m a fast typist (depending on the heavy wording I rate from 75-105 wpm) My turn rate is approximately 8 hours for 1 hour of audio with proofreading. Work I have done consists of a basic template (can be changed depending on user requests) placing timestamps and filtering out mumbling, unnecessary repetition and stuttering. And of course if there were any misheard words or inaudible sounds they are marked and usually corrected while proofreading when finalizing the project.
