    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.
