    General Transcription

    United States - Last active: 6 months ago - 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.

    Argentina - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello. I'm Santiago Rosales, a 25 years old college student from Argentina, currently studying a IT engineering career. I have 4 years working on translating many Android apps and websites. My main translation fields are technology, mobile, applications, games, websites, e-commerce sites, user guides, programming related documentation, geological papers, education and economy. Also I'm experienced with legal websites and documents. I'm highly communicative with my clients in order to provide the most accurate translation. With a 60 WPM typing rate I'm the most indicated when it involves projects with a very short timeframe. My average speed is above 900 translated words per hour, and training every day in order to increase my speed, while keeping the quality at the highest possible level. Update: Over the past year I've been involved in several hospital brochures and stock market books translations, along with engineering and safety handouts and slides. Also, I had a high responsibility managing content from 10 languages(Europe/Asia) for Polaroid projects. Which requires a higher attention to the detail and knowledge about formatting for each specific language.
