Dear Proz colleagues,

I am not sure if this topic is in the right category. If not, I would appreciate someone re-routing it for me or telling me what section to place it in.

I am posing this question on behalf of a cousin to supplement her income with data entry work, more specifically typing patient records up for a doctor, clinic, hospital, etc. She is a pre med student at the university.

Do any of you have an idea how to go about this? Thank you for your time.

Translating? Oct 1, 2012

I would say that, unless she is translating them into another language, no forum on would be suitable. Typing up patient records may be a job for a freelancer, but not for a translator.

You will find sites for transcription work the same way you find freelance translation work.

Dear Lucinda,

Most universities have student employment offices, where she might be able to find appropriate work or offer her services. She might also try mailing local hospitals or doctors' offices. My son worked as an orderly in a hospital, which is also good experience.

Good luck
