Professional

Are you overwhelmed by the demands on your time? Are you wondering what you should outsource? I offer a range of services, customized for businesses and individuals, giving you more time to spend on the stuff that only you can do. I will keep it professional, high quality, and delivered on time!

For writing projects, I adapt grammar and style to various dialects of English, so whether it’s BrE, NAmE, en-AU or en-CA, I will get right down to it.

Do you need to convert your podcasts to text? Do you have a lecture, speech, or interview and need professional help to transcribe it? I will create clean verbatim transcripts also known as intelligent or clean read. This means that I leave out stutters and filler words such as “um, er’ and reduce the appearance of overused words such as so, really, okay, actually, basically. My goal is to give you accurate and readable transcripts.

  • I use iTube Studio and Express Scribe Pro
  • I understand the importance of confidentiality for some clients and I will be happy to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement if you like.
  • I will deliver on time and keep you informed of any developments.
Here is a sample of past work:
 
 Sample Transcript

Premium, quality content:

  • Show notes: Excellent and engaging content for your podcasts
  • Repurposing podcast content into an “edited” transcript that will engage your audience
  • Website content for web pages 

Proofreading and editing copy for your website pages, documents, or blog posts.

When you create content, you need another pair of eyes (and ears) to make sure that the text reads right, looks right, and sounds right. Perhaps you use the Oxford comma like I do, or you want to maintain a casual tone in your content. A perfect text will impress your audience while editorial errors can be a turnoff. I distinguish between BrE, NAmE, en-CA, and en-AU. I will research phrases that resonate with your audience and find the right synonym to avoid overused words.

  • Review your word choice, check for inconsistencies, clarity, proper tense usage, repetitive use of words and phrases, unnecessary words and sentences.
  • Check punctuation, grammar, and do basic fact-checking.
  • Eliminate typos and remove formatting errors in your project documents.
