COVID-19 pandemic update : I'm happy to report that it is business as usual for me. I am in a safe and stable location with all necessary services operating, so I am not experiencing the high levels of stress others report and still able to produce the quality work I'm known for.
Transcription is an art. It requires the ability to listen well and transcribe speech into legible text without changing the meaning. Because of the myriad of nuances of oral and written language, there is no software that can do the job adequately.
I have been transcribing professionally full-time for more than eight years. From a clear monologue or one-on-one interview to a focus group with background noise, my clients can count on my delivering a transcript that reflects the audio.
Building on that experience, I am now offering transcript proofreading and scoping services for court transcripts to ensure error-free records that still reflect the spoken word. I can always tell when a proofreader of my transcripts has never transcribed themselves, and I bet you can too! Let me take the science out of transcribing for you so that you can focus on the art.
All jobs delivered on time, no excuses. I know my limits and never over-promise and under-deliver.
This is my full-time job. I am continually honing my skills and continuing my professional development.
No job starts until I understand the client's expectations. Issues are communicated promptly, in time to be addressed, if at all possible.
I'm a strong writer with a good ear who knows how to use industry-specific resources such as Morson's English Guide for Court Reporters; The Gregg Reference Manual; Bad Grammar, Good Punctuation; and the Chicago Manual of Style; as well as more general resources such as the Oxford and Merriam-Webster dictionaries. I also have a basic knowledge of reading stenography!

“My name is Christian Naaden. I’m the owner and operator of Noble Transcription Services, Inc., a legal and general transcription firm based in southern California since 2007. Rae Crothers has been on my staff since June of 2011. In that time we’ve worked together on over 450 different assignments and Rae’s performance has been exemplary throughout. The work is as varied as body cam audio from officer-involved shooting incidents to commercial insurance inventory recordings to mutual fund conference calls from Wall Street, and Rae has never been late or absent on any of the work. I’ve also very much appreciated Rae has been easy to reach almost all the time. Whenever I have a possible assignment that I might send to her, she’s always emailed me back very promptly with her availability. I heartily recommend Rae for your work. She’ll make an excellent asset to get the task done, whatever, wherever, and whenever it might be.”
