Service Description

Writing - Editing - Transcription

I am an experienced writer and proofreader. My in-depth study of several languages has given me an extensive knowledge of vocabulary and the rules of grammar and syntax. I am a thorough and competent editor, and I work to the highest standards.

I am able to work with any kind of document, including:
-- Catalogs, brochures and other marketing materials
-- Manuscripts
-- Software user manuals
-- Statistical reports with embedded graphics
-- Training materials
-- Web page content

My editing by-words: Readability - Accuracy - Consistency

Regarding transcription, I am a good choice when (in addition to accuracy) you need very short turnaround time. I specialize in the following types of transcription:
-- Court proceedings, depositions
-- General dictation (correspondence, manuscripts, reports)
-- Legal documents (briefs, agreements)
-- Technical documents (mathematical, scientific)

I have set my introductory rate for these services at $20/hr. This rate will be in effect through December 31, 2010.
