    Transcriptionist

    Croatia - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I'm a skilful, fast and, above all an accurate typist (85+ wpm). I can deliver your files very quickly, My standard TAT is 6 hours for 1 hour of audio, with included proofreading. I also pay a lot of attention to research, when it comes to working in areas I'm not that familiar with, such as unknown subjects/topics so I always strive to get the names and all the spellings correct. All my work is proofread before handing it back to my clients. I've been dealing with transcriptions in technical field, economy classes/lectures, teacher/student interviews, research related interviews, legal and court transcriptions, as well as medical classes/lectures. My usual work involves using my default/general template, placing 5-minute timestamps and excluding the usual stuttering, mumbling, repeated words and such. Everything I'm unable to hear for the first time is labeled as inaudible, most of which I can deal with in my second run through the file, proofreading. I also do occasional work involving graphic, logo and print design. Feel free to browse through my portfolio to see my past work.

    Proofreader/Editor/Product Description Writer

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 1

    I have been in the call center industry since 2006 and I have worked as a customer service agent and as a collections agent as well. I had to leave my work due to some unavoidable circumstances and so I need to work from home to support me and my little boy's needs. For the past three years I have also worked as an audio transcriptionist and a proofreader/editor for a couple of employers here in oDesk, both of which require excellent English communication skills, thus providing me with additional skills and experience. I have written THOUSANDS of product descriptions for health and wellness supplements, bodybuilding products and sports formulas for a number of online stores. I had to make sure that these descriptions were 100% unique and easy to understand, compelling the consumer to purchase the product. I currently work as a product description writer for a couple of health supplement websites, and I strongly believe that this is the area where I really excel and specialize in. I hope to be of service to you and look forward to be part of your team :)
