Rave reviews

“Trina recently completed a number of focus group transcripts for me. Focus groups are almost always a challenge to transcribe and require a considerable degree of patience. In the past I have used three or four different transcriptionists who have really struggled with this type of work. It is for this reason that I was delighted to receive Trina’s transcripts: not only were the transcripts extremely accurate to the recordings, but she had followed my instructions to the letter and shown excellent attention to detail with her correct transcription of some tricky specialist terms that had cropped up. She is by far the best transcriptionist I have worked with and I look forward to using her services again in the future.”

“During the six and a half years Trina was employed with Bell Gully she was secretary to a range of staff – partner, two senior solicitors and two junior solicitors. Her workloads were consistently very heavy by the firm’s standards and she took considerable personal responsibility for ensuring her work was completed on time. Her accuracy rate was high and she required minimal supervision. The secretarial work Trina performed included banking, commercial agreements, residential property, Wills, Matrimonial Property Agreements, Family Trusts, Mortgagee sales and summary judgments.”

“Trina recently completed five audio, digital files for me. It was a huge relief to be able to send files to her and not have to worry about the transcript. Her work is impeccable. She made a heavy load lighter, and she followed all instructions. She was prompt, professional and timely in all her communications with me and returned all transcripts on time. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Trina if you want timely, confidential, professional and accurate transcription.”

“I have assigned both audio transcription and proof-reading work to Trina on almost a daily basis since September 2008, very often assigning urgent transcription projects during the evening and at weekends. The work Trina returns is consistently second to none in terms of quality and timely delivery and she is certainly my first point of reference for each project.”

“With the eventual objective of a memoir, I have been recording interviews with an iconic New Zealand figure about his life and work. Purple Giraffe Transcription Limited’s transcription of my digital files has been highly professional, fast, accurate and very cost effective, leaving me free to indulge in all the most pleasurable aspects of my work. A great find that I recommend unreservedly.”
