Chinese to English Translator/Transcriber (NATIVE ENGLISH ONLY)

We need a Chinese to English translator with Avid software to translate the footage into Avid. You must be a native English speaker. No exceptions of any kind. It does not matter if you have lived in an English speaking country for 20 years. That means you are not native. 

This is about 12 hours of raw footage (with time code). We have about 8 hours of it now, and 4 more hours that will be ready to translate the week of 1/28. For most of this footage we use lavs on primary characters and interviewees. There are usually 1 or 2 people conversing or speaking, with some situations where it's 3 people at the dinner table. For about 4 hours of footage the audio might be less ideal as it was shot with a Senheiser mic on the 5D since it was a discrete shooting situation. We'll have 5D footage soon too. 

You would need some familiarity with the"audio punch-in" tool in Avid and you should have an external microphone. 

The Avid software is Media Composer 6.5, though there might be some compatibility with slightly earlier versions. 

You would do a simultaneous audio translation scratch track directly into Avid. 

We will have another shoot in February, likely with another 8 hours of footage, and that would need to be translated likely around the week of 2/25.

YOU WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE AVID SOFTWARE OR IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO WILL LET YOU USE IT
