I am an Austin TX proofreader and have been proofing for an Austin reporter who is so bad about paying me that at one point she owed me over $1,500! She never confirms my requests for confirmation of receipt of my invoices. I have to contact her several times before she acknowledges receipt. I usually get these harsh emails back in response to my invoice pointing out things I missed. When I try to go over them with her she never responds. She sends files very late and gives me a short turn around, which I always make, but she claims she takes responsibility for the work being late, insinuating it's my fault!
I now have several reporters who are SO awesome that I can drop this one after I get the rest of my money. None of my other reporters have ever complained or not paid me and I always ask for constructive criticism.
Be wary!

It's very unusual. I've been proofreading for 18 years and I've only been stiffed once. I doubt that there are many in the service industry who can say the same thing. Most CSRs are timely and very conscientious.

You're welcome, Tracy. Considering how much we reporters hate it when attorneys stiff us, it's unbelievable that a reporter would act this way.

Warning to proofreaders.  My proofreader has done work for S.S. from Austin, TX, who has not paid in over a month and refuses to respond to e-mails now.  If my proofreader doesn't get payment soon, I just may come back and tell her full name.

I'm in need of a proofreader asap!  My regular proofreader will not be available for a week.  So I need someone who can proofread my jobs while she's gone.  Please e-mail me with your rates and turnaround time!  I have one job that I need back by Monday afternoon.  Please let me know asap!  My e-mail address is halo172516@yahoo.com

 

 

Thanks!

Hi Laura-

Please email me your email address because when I try to email you from the one you sent my sbcglobal, it says do-not-reply, and the link it says to click on to respond doesn't work. Will send the information you asked for.

This may be an unusual request. I have been a California CSR for over 25 years. Most of my experience has been in freelance depositions. I have a strong medical and technical background. I have been home for a number of years raising children. Now that they are grown, I want to get back into the reporting/scoping field. I have purchased the full version Case Cat, Version 13. Scoping and proofreading is where I would like to start, as I haven't been reporting for a while. I would love to ultimately stay home and work part-time, maybe full time. I do have Drop Box, and know how to transfer files. I would like to intern as a proofreader, and then progress to scoping with full audio. I do have a reporting resume I could email to you. Is there anyone out there that would consider taking on an intern? If so, please give me a call: Reyes Hunter, CSR 6576, 530-339-5023 or email me rhuntercsr@gmail.com.

Want to give a heads-up there's a new reporter that works for a reporting firm in Lake City, Florida that may be looking for a proofreader, and she does....not.....pay. When I realized what was going on, I abruptly quit proofing for her, so she may be looking for another proofreader. I don't want anyone else to get caught in this trap.

Currently a court reporting student. Looking to take on proofreading work! Please email: trista_roininen@yahoo.ca

Former legal secretary for decades just semi-retired, woo hoo! I've been doing audio transcription from home and a bit of proofreading and scoping for a court reporter friend since 2011. I would love to speak with or work with someone who is willing to put a transcript into Microsoft Word for a proofreading assignment, as I do not have CAT equipment. I work with Dropbox, Infinity foot pedal and Start Stop. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I am a NALA certified paralegal with over 12 years of experience proofreading for attorneys. I have associate degrees in medical technology and paralegal studies, as well as a BS from UT in composite science education, so I have a very strong legal/medical/science background. I also speak Portuguese, Spanish and French, so I have a strong base for understanding Latin-based terminology.

I have been proofreading for court reporters for the last two years and love it!! I also do research at no extra cost.

Hope to be able to help out anyone who needs it, even at the last minute or on weekends.

Barbie in Austin, the best place to live in Texas!!
