Transcription of an Audio Conversation 12-14 minutes in length

We are looking for someone to write a transcription of an audio conversation that is approximately 12-15 minutes long. The final transcription of our conversations is usually between 2000-2500 words. These transcriptions are used to help people who are learning English to listen to our conversations while following along with the transcriptions. This project will be due for Tuesday May 12, 2014.

You will be transcribing a conversation and have to punctuate according the the flow of the conversation. In other words, the punctuation will be based on the audio more than technical grammar. In conversational English many sentences begin with the words and, but, so, etc., there are run-on sentences and incomplete sentences at times. Please see the attached audio file and transcription to have an idea of what we are looking for.

We will also need you to note who is speaking at the time. This is what I am referring to:

Amy: Hello, this is Amy from Real English Conversations and I am here with Curtis. How are you doing today Curtis?

Curtis: I'm good thanks.

You will also need to highlight in bold text 15-20 words or phrases from the conversation that and English learner find interesting, need an extra explanation or examples. We will be writing the examples for these words and phrases but we want the person that is doing the transcription to be able to point out the interesting words so that we do not have to scan the article to find them ourselves. You will see some examples of underlined words in the attached Word document which will help you understand what we mean by interesting. North American English should be your first language or a language that you have spoken since childhood so that you understand expressions, slang and words that are specific to this type of work.

A high typing speed would be an asset for the applicant because the job will take you less time. The project will be based on completion not on a per hour rate.

This small project is only for one transcription based on the conversation we are publishing next; however, we release 1-2 conversations per week and are looking for someone we can use on a regular basis for our future transcriptions. We are looking for a very accurate transcription.
