Bill Wilcox

General Transcription

United States - Tests: 4

I am a freelance transcriptionist, and I've been working primarily for Babbletype (a company that contacted me through oDesk) since late 2011. My combination of wide-ranging interests and fluency in both written and spoken English have provided me with a natural talent for general transcription. I am a voracious learner and a dedicated researcher, and I am powerfully committed to the quality of my product as a matter of both conscience and pride. With a typing speed of over 60 wpm, I can reliably transcribe ten to twenty audio minutes per hour, depending on the quality of the audio. My highest educational achievement is the biotech certificate I earned from a community college.

I am a near native American English speaker but have also worked closely with Australians and Southeast Asians so I can easily understand accents from different regions. I also come from a background of working for multinationals all throughout my corporate career so you can be assured I can proofread quite professionally.

Klaus L.

Professional Transcription

Ireland - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 9

I have 5 years of experience working with transcription. I have experience with general, medical and legal transcription. I have worked with both long-term and short-term clients that have all been very satisfied with my work. I DO NOT OUTSOURCE. I transcribe, proofread and edit all of my transcripts before I send them back to clients. My transcripts are 99% accurate. I offer transcripts that are delivered in a clean-read edit, but I also do transcripts that are true verbatim, if requested by the client. I have a typing speed of over 100 WPM with 99% accuracy. I use a foot pedal with Express Scribe when I am transcribing. My rate is $15.00 per hour of work or $60.00 per audio hour. I charge $1.00 per audio minute. My number one concern is client satisfaction. I ensure client satisfaction by providing accurate, high quality transcripts that have great TAT's. My TAT's are usually 24 hours of less for one hour of audio. I offer a free 2 minute transcription of an audio file of your choice, so that you can gauge the quality of my work. Past clients have been consistently happy with my work. I have never received bad feedback!

Robert Pfefer

Transcription Specialist

Serbia - Tests: 8

I've been involved in writing my whole life in one way or another. Over the last year I've focused extensively on transcription work. I have experience with single-speaker, one-on-one and multiple-speaker transcriptions, and I'm comfortable with a wide variety of English accents. My transcriptions can be fully verbatim, edited for grammar, or something in between, according to your needs. If you're looking for accurate and error-free transcriptions with perfect grammar and fast turnaround times, look no further. I'm looking forward to challenging work that will further strengthen and expand my skill set.
