Specialisms

I have been a full-time transcriber since 2010 and prior to this had a career spanning 15 years as both as litigation secretary and latterly medical secretary, so I have come to be familiar with the below-listed industry terminology. However, I also regularly do work for individuals, charities, SMEs, authors and researchers, including non-fiction, fiction, history and family history research.  Therefore, I can take on work of all types, but specialise in the following:

Legal
Medical
Business
Technology
Science
