Hello Sara,

Thanks for the suggestion which is really good. However, due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect from tomorrow (25 May 2018), I cannot share any information I collected 'publicly' as this was not the primary purpose for which I collected the personal information.

I do think that BNAC could 'commission' someone to do this kind of work as we all need this kind of service though at varying levels.

If anyone wants to contact me privately, I can of course recommend people based on my experience.

Best wishes,
Prithvi.

It would be useful to have a data base of people and costs for this type of work both here and in Nepal – as costing bids can be complex and having a BNAC list or guide would be useful

 

 

Just a thought if you can collate and share this information that would be great

 

Best wishes

Subject: Re: Looking for a transcriber in Nepali language

 

Further to my message below, I have received a number of responses. Thank you for sharing this information with the relevant people and recommending them.

 

As we now have a big enough pool of people to choose from, we are no longer seeking new people.

 

Thank you.

 

Best wishes,

Prithvi.

Dear BNAC Members,

 

My apologies for this mass posting. 

 

We, at The Open University, are looking for someone who can transcribe audio-recorded interviews conducted in Nepali for our research project. I thought many distinguished members in this list must have had this kind of work done by people who provide this type of service. I wondered if you knew someone who could do the work for us. If you do, could you please send me the details off this list to [log in to unmask] ?

 

The audio recording is about five hours. I can share further details with the concerned person.

 

Many thanks for any pointers in advance.

 

Best wishes,

Prithvi.
