Typing, Page Layout and Scraping
   South Africa
  |   Pretoria, Gauteng
  |  9:45 am Local Time


Minimum Hourly Rate $7

Although I can speak English fairly well, my mother tongue is not English but Afrikaans. Therefor I can translate from English to Afrikaans, but not vice verse.

I do VB6 programming, scraping data from the internet, clean and retype almost any kind of data.

My typing is relative fast and very accurate.

I wrote an OCR program to assist me in the upload of documents, change and format it into almost any format available, from normal text, csv up to htm/L.

You need creative ideas? Try me.
