    Transcription, translation data entry

    France - Last active: 1 day ago - Portfolio: 1

    My name is Dieynaba and I am 26 years old. I am a native French speaker,who decided 6 years ago that speaking English was one of a goal that I truly wanted to achieve, by any means necessary, so I want in a few English speaking lands in total immersion to improve my language. Since then, I kept speaking, writing, watching, reading and translating in a language that came to make me proud of myself by understanding it. Translation is for me the power to bring beyond borders a bit of the whole world. I am letting you know that i am immediately available and disposed to answer if you have any questions you would like to ask me.

    Professionally Fast Transcription Services

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    I am here to offer you my expert services as a transcriber. I have been a transcriptionist for almost four years on several different projects as well as with a few people for long-term work. I've worked on books, webinars, podcasts, radio shows, interviews, conferences; a little bit of everything, both general and medical. You can see from my feedback how happy my past clients are with my deliverables. Rates are based on number of speakers, quality of audio, and turnaround time. Prices are fair, because you certainly get what you pay for in this industry. You require quality, professional, quickly delivered documents that require no editing and are public-facing ready. That is exactly what I can provide for you. Also, please note that the hourly rate listed is for an hour of transcribed audio, NOT an hourly rate I charge for transcribing. You're paying for a completed product, not how long it takes to get it completed. My turn-around time is fast; usually 48 hours or less, depending on the length of the audio. I can provide verbatim documents or those with ready-to-read edits. I do not use automated software as I do not believe it returns a quality product. Please contact me today for a quote! Thanks, Sarah Hicks

    Translation, Transcription, Text

    Germany - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.
