Service Description

I have 25 years experience in administration, medical and legal. Legal duties incorporated various skills from wills, formations of companies and Close Corporations where accuracy is of paramount importance.

Transcription is my main freelance focus. I have state of the art transcription software and accessories and my typing speed is 85 wpm. Another strength is the distinction I received in Pitman's shorthand at 120 wpm which adds an extra dimension to transcribing.

My background in proofreading and editing legal documents during my years of legal experience as well as my years as Personal Assistant/Transcriptionist to the News Editor of The Daily News (where perfection was of paramount importance) allows me to proofread, format and perfect my own transcriptions.

My internationally accepted computer certificate (ICDL) consisting of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook ensures success in whatever project I my embark upon.

All projects are completed by myself personally to ensure that the task is done perfectly and within the stipulated time frame.

Transcription of:
* Interviews, seminars, discussions, forums, international conference calls
* Medical, Legal, Education, Government
* Includes proofreading, editing and formatting documents in accordance with customer specifications
*I can record data either by utilizing Pitman's shorthand or by typing directly onto my computer
* I can process audio files in all commonly used digital formats
* Text files...
