Overview

I am an Australian, now living in Germany. I have worked as a legal and medical transcriptionist, which requires speed, accuracy, attention to detail, broad general knowledge and ability to understand foreign accents. My typing speed is around 80 words per minute with 98% accuracy.

I have also worked as a publishing and sales assistant for an international educational publisher in Australia. I was responsible for editing promotional material before it was sent out to all schools in Australia.

My educational background is sound,...

Service Description

**Professional transcription of any subject matter **

My legal transcription experience covers Family Court, Federal Court, Federal Magistrates Court, Industrial Relations and the High Court. Every subject you can think of has been discussed at one time or another in any of these courts in exacting detail (eg the mathematical equations behind an intellectual property dispute, computer networking, squabbling couples, unfair job dismissals, insurance fraud, financial matters - you name it, I've transcribed it). The courts have very high expectations when it comes to transcription accuracy and quality, and I know the difference between excellent transcript and one that is unusable due to poor attention to detail and carelessness.

My medical transcription experience covers the following specialties: paediatrics, rheumatology, cardiology and endocrinology. I worked as a full-time medical transcriptionist in a large teaching hospital in Australia. I also have a good ear for accented English.

I have all the equipment (footpedal, ExpressScribe, reliable internet connection, computer and headphones) and am ready to get to work on your transcript.

**Editing Skills**

As part of my masters degree, I received professional instruction in editing and I also have experience in editing complex scientific theses, as well as structural editing and copyediting of short stories, articles and reports.
