OPENINGS:At this time we are looking to add several well-qualified, experienced independent contractors who are available during normal business hours and who can regularly transcribe at least two recorded hours of audio a week.
Independent contractors must be U.S. citizens or legal residents, have all their own equipment, be willing to get criminal background checks from the FBI and state police and present results to us, and be able to meet all client document requirements and delivery times. This includes using MSWord to produce transcripts, use of own digital transcription software program and foot pedal to play both audios and videos. We require independent contractors to be able to listen to potentially offensive law enforcement interviews, to be able to punctuate the spoken word, and to be able to transcribe what is heard verbatim, even when the sound quality is poor.
There is an audio test that can be sent and must be passed prior to our outsourcing materials to you.
We are adding select foreign language translators to our list of independent contractors. (See below)
1. Court certified Spanish translators, preferably living in the state of Florida.
2. Translators who are certified (or have been nationally tested) in both Spanish and Portuguese
EXPERIENCE AND BACKGROUND:
You must be able to pass FBI and state police criminal background checks with fingerprints, at your own expense, or provide evidence of recent federal security clearance.
You must be a native English speaker for general transcription work.
Translators must be certified in their language through either a state or federal court interpreter's program, ATA, ATLA, ACTFL, or other nationally recognized certifying agency. Proof of current certification is required.
You must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident.
We do not hire beginners or students pursuing other fields of study.We seek experienced transcriptionists and translators only. Typing fast is not evidence of being a professional transcriber.
