Oh, I love to learn new things. Transcription work, working as a Freelance transcriptionist and translator has an abundance of that. You never know what is coming your way. Personally, I love the medical transcriptions and the art-related ones. It makes for a very exciting work day if you not only type or translate, but also hear about new topics that you would never imagine you would come across at your tiny desk.
Medical Transcription Services
In terms of medical transcriptions, they range so far! The latest research trials for a new cancer drug, symposiums on an illness and the latest breakthroughs in treatments, as well as captivating patient interviews and assessments. Of course, there is strict confidentiality when completing jobs at Transcription City, that goes without saying, but this year I have learned about illnesses that I had never heard of before, which at the same time heightens the awareness for more complex causes. It definitely has had an effect on which charities I choose to donate to!
But there is also the additional benefit of transcribing and translating in the field of personal expertise, because all translators and transcriptionists at Transcription City are also experts in the fields that they are working in. So if you wanted to have an art-historical text translated, you can be assured that next to accuracy and translation expertise, your translator will also share your passion for Monet’s waterlilies. This is what makes it so exciting. Because they will also know their Klimt from their Schiele.
Occasionally there are some rarer gems as jobs. For example there were some â€˜vintage’ interviews from the BBC archive with some famous Hollywood actors from the 1950s. Simply spell-binding. It is always nice to have professionally recorded audio files as sound quality does make a significant difference to us, as we use headphones in our work â€“ meaning we can hear all the noise, which also includes distracting sounds like the cutlery on the plates on the other tables in the restaurant that they are recorded on. If you are interested to know how you can make a professional recording to be transcribed or translated, please get in touch for advice.
So, I wonder what will be in store for me next? I really never know. Because if you listen, you can learn something new every day. Literally! How exciting! If you want to apply for transcription work, feel free to contact us via email.
