    Translator and Content Editor

    Argentina - Last active: 1 month ago

    As a multilingual translator and content editor I understand how to communicate effectively with individuals who speak another language. For the last 20 years I have been communicating across cultures and I because of that can ensure that all parties involved in a project, regardless of geographic location and background, come together and stay together through successful project completion. I have been awarded a translation subsidy by NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad) for the translation of two books of a major Norwegian writer. I enjoy working with people remotely as it is to work face-to-face, and cross-cultural communication is not a challenge for me.

    For over 10 years now, I have been assisting my clients with my transcription services, primarily in the market research industry. Much of the work has involved transcription of one-on-one in depth interviews, but I've worked extensively with full focus groups as well. I prefer digital audio, but can handle older formats as needed, including microcasettte, audio casette, and even VHS recordings if necessary. I work with the assistance of Express Scribe and a foot pedal, and can type in excess of 100wpm. Additionally, my work has often involved data coding for quantitative studies, and some work with data tabulation.
