Hi. My name is Andrew Latimer. I am a freelance audio transcriber, proofreader and editor based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

I am also currently studying for my PhD at Newcastle University where I research contemporary theatre in the North East of England.

About my audio transcription experience

I specialise in transcribing confidential depth interviews in business-to-business market research. I transcribe highly technical interviews carried out in sectors such as renewable energy, higher education, robotics, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, healthcare, and commercial security.

My clients are equally wide-ranging and include market research agencies, local authorities, theatre companies, and universities. I am confident in handling all interview formats, from one-to-ones to public panels.

I provide exceptionally high levels of accuracy and take pride in my meticulous attention to detail.

About my proofreading and editing experience

I specialise in proofreading market research reports for the higher education sector. I work with tables, charts, images, footnotes, quotes, and hyperlinks. Past projects include proofreading reports on big solar, credit unions, international campus development for universities, and academic handbooks.

I am also an experienced website editor and subeditor. This work involves making corrections, providing feedback, ensuring adherence to house styles, and fact-checking. Past employers and clients include online arts publications, market research agencies, universities, and theatre companies.
