    Well, my goal is to work in French transcription or translation English-French. I know how to follow rules and instructions and send the work in time. I am determined to do the best possible work possible, answering the needs of customers. Transcription work takes effort rigor, attention and speed. These are qualities that characterize me. I'm known to write very fast, and I use a computer every day, it's a tool that I control. Anyway, I would like to gain experience in transcription, because I'm new at this kind of work. Before, I was working in research in human computer interaction.

    Data Entry and Webcoding Specialist

    United States - Last active: 07/10/2013 - Tests: 5

    I have a passion for data entry and organization and am seeking jobs where I can add a positive benefit to companies that may need my work. I am meticulous in making sure I provide accurate results. I can type 90+ wpm and I am an extremely quick learner. I actually enjoy doing data entry and transcription and having my skills challenged. I work fast and accurately. Many years ago, I worked for a traffic data collection company that had a team scheduled one night to come in and do data entry. Instead, they sent everyone home and just had me come in and I was able to complete the entire project that evening for the price of just one employee rather than the team. Needless to say, they had me back many times. More recently I have been coding websites for various local companies and friends and am looking for extra work on the side.

    Proof It Good

    United States - Last active: 07/26/2014 - Tests: 1

    Pr-proof it real good! I will take your words and make them better. Have a document or set of documents that needs attention? Let me take a look. Most people just aren’t very comfortable with grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I am. When I see words misspelled, or punctuation used incorrectly, or a “they’re” when it should be “their” – these things jump out at me like a flashing neon sign. I have an unerring eye for consistency within a document or a set of documents. I'll make sure that words and sections are spelled, capitalized, and formatted the same way throughout your document(s). I’ll work on anything – a website, terms of service, wedding program, a bat mitzvah invitation, a restaurant menu, an essay, a book proposal, a screenplay, a manuscript, a cover letter, a contract – you name it. I can provide different levels of service based on your preference - from baseline spell check-type service to light copy editing to in-depth, substantive, content-based review and suggestions. I will work with you to really bring out what you're trying to communicate. For 8 years I was been the editor of a global health education website, coordinating assignments and managing workflow for more than 40 outside professionals. I proofread and substantively edited all content for the site, as well as setting up monthly issue publication. I also have extensive experience transcribing videos for publication on YouTube and other sites.

    I have two things most contractors don't have: passion and time. I value proper spelling and grammar in all written work almost more than the work itself and I revel in finding the best phrasing possible of any message or idea. My goal as an editor is to make your writing as professional, intelligible, and delightful to read as possible. I firmly believe that it is my responsibility to detect every blemish in your writing, big or small--from typos and capitalization to subtle inadequacies in expression. If spice is what you need, my extensive vocabulary helped me score higher than 97% of the country on the written portion of the SAT last December. I am also familiar with both British and American English and know when and how to adhere to their respective conventions. I hail from the small town of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, where I attended Strath Haven High School and discovered my love of writing and editing in the monthly "Panther Press." I will be attending the University of Pittsburgh's Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences in August, where I intend to continue my writing and editing practices for the university's literary magazine, "Hot Metal Bridge." Until then, however, I have plenty of time to help improve your writing quickly and efficiently.
