Guidelines

Below, you will find guidance to the best outcome of our collaboration.

To keep us both happy…

It’s important that we’re clear on expectations from the beginning. All the stages of preparing a transcript for excellence have to be accurately carried out for you to get the best product possible. Only after a transcript has been carefully scoped will I be able to properly proofread it. When there are too many errors per page, the flow is constantly interrupted and chances are higher that my eyes will miss something. I’m a black belt, not superhuman 🙂 Remember that the proofreader is the final line of defense for quality control.

To help manage workflow…

I request that jobs of 200 pages or more be sent to me in portions of 50 pages. That way, while you (or your scopist) finish one part, I can already be working on the completed section. Teamwork! If you don’t do this, and I get slammed with a 300-page rush on top of other work all in one go, my brain won’t like you very much. Sometimes things are really unexpected, and I understand that. But if I’m organized and you’re organized, we’ll both be happier for it!
