Do you have notes that need to be typed but don’t have time to do it yourself? Do you have an audio file that needs to be transcribed? Then I can help.

I offer copy typing and audio/video transcription services in English, French and German.


I transcribe audio and video documents with one or multiple speakers. I accept documents in the following formats: tapes, CD, DVD, USB key, mp3, WAV, WMA and AAC.

My transcription services include:
• Transcribing into a Word document
• Proofreading the document
• Researching on the Internet to ensure correct spelling of uncommon names and places whenever possible
• Verbatim transcription (i.e. omitting the ‘ums’, ‘errs’, ‘you knows’, ‘kind of’, ‘sort of’, repetitions due to hesitation, laughs, coughs, etc.) if requested.

Please note that the standard guidelines for transcription are 1 hour to transcribe 15 minutes of good quality audio recording. Other factors such as poor sound quality, background noises or multiple speakers will make the document more difficult to transcribe and will be charged at a higher rate. Transcribing a video document is also more time consuming and therefore more expensive.

I type handwritten or printed documents such as letters, books, articles, etc. in English, French and German.

My typing services include:
• Typing the document in Word
• Proofreading the typed document against the original copy. Please contact me if you wish your document to be free of spelling mistakes or be edited.
