Sounds like an Indian to me...nm
You are not the author of the other post. (SM)
Your ISP isn't anywhere close to it. There is nothing wrong with the post and it will stand unless the author (verifiably) requests for it to be removed.


p.s., why not e/mail the articles author,
add some good ol MT insight into this issue, and maybe she'll dig deeper and see the WHOLE picture and its affect on the MT, on the medical record, the country, etc, and write further about the issues. I did.
Focus is Indian run and you'll be editing Indian
work, so seriously doubt you'll make a bunch of $$ on editing.  99% of the MTs love KS.  If you'll just scroll down the page you'll see dozens of posts about them. 
Probably not - I believe they are Indian run or Indian based company. nm
Go to their Indian website or other Indian websites
sure sounds swell. Sounds like 2350 ln/day @ 4 cents/ln=$90./day
in order to figure how many line needs to be produced to make $500 per pay period. ie, how many lines an hour needed per 8 hour day --at your rate.

So say $450 a week would be $90 a day.
For example, if making 4 cents a line,need 2,250 lines a day, 281 an HOUR (to listen through and edit) to make this great wage of $90. a day FOR ALL THIS SAME SKILL, TO KEEP UPDATED WITH CHANGING MEDICAL COMMUNITY. nope Better at Jack-in-Box Pass it up.
Sounds like it and it sounds like you must tell them when they will be and no change them. Wonder
what you do when there is no work. Well, there will be a lot of problems with this whole plan if they dont get things straightened out with this no work situation.
Indian ran?
They ARE Indian!!!
If you want to take a chance and not believe what you read, you will see for yourself that they are ALL Indian RUN!!!! Some people are so hardheaded....they are a horrible company and Bobbi is a real MEAN person to deal with as well....NO WAY FOR FOCUS!!!
CMT for Indian MTs
As an Editor who worked an account for several years transcribed 100% by an Indian company, I am surprised to hear they are able to pass the CMT certification exam. Their transcription was comical at best and sheer nonsense at worst.
HIS has been Indian since day one.
It has not one whit to do with AAMT.  This company tried to recruit me years ago when they were first started and they were Indian then and still have their heavy ties.  You lost your jobs because Manor Care will not be deep pockets to a dying entity any longer and can't even sell the damned thing!!  Blaming AAMT is easy.  I think the letter you got may have been from the executive director and not the President.  Each of us, has to take responsibility for the choices we make with employment and having been through a lay off with HIS I had to blame myself ultimately for making a choice to be lied to and believe it because it suited me at the time.  Offshoring is over 15 years in existence and I guess here to stay so the next time you make an employment choice be sure you pick a company that does not offshore .. in the meantime, put the blame where is squarely belongs at your own doorstep and not AAMT.
...that should be Indian MTs. nm
Indian MTs
There are always exceptions.  I emailed often with one of the Indian MTs at one time.  His English was probably better than my own.  I think he was starting up his own transcription company and he was kind enough to ask me to work for him. (I was already working, but I considered it nice of him to ask).  Really, I do think he was the exception, he was a great fellow.  He was supporting his mom, his father had just passed away.  Now he has gotten married.  I do not exchange emails with him anymore but, if there were others like him, they would do pretty good.  I do not really think that there are others like him though.  Honestly, my primary account probably has 80% of his nationality.  Wish they could type those. 
Didn't you know this board is run by Indians??
I wonder what they pay the Indian MTs? ..sm
I guess it is now equal, we are paid the same as the Indian.
did you mean by chance Indian
So is that why the new US MT supervisor is Indian?
I was doing some research on Indian
MT companies and from what I can tell probably all work is done in India.  They do hire U.S. editors, or at least they used to.  
So, are your editors Indian?
I highly doubt it.
Indian company (nm)
That is correct! I don't! Obviously if you can tell they are Indian....
indian company
i bet it's an Indian company
They are not an Indian company - they are in NY
but they were offshoring A LOT of their transcription work. In fact, they lost quite a few clients about a year ago because the quality of the transcripts was just AWFUL!
Indian and Philippine.
I don't know name of company, but there is an Indian
company with at least a store front in MA.  Tech people could possibly be in MA, but are probably in India. 
You mean they are hiring US MTs. Wonder why. They are almost 100% Indian. nm
All of the Indian MT work I have
proofread is full of errors. I guess there are exceptions out there.
Says they also use Indian MTs on their website. nm
Lartech is in TX but I think is mainly Indian run.
and very much slave labor pay.
They are Indian owned
Do a search on the Company Board. Many negatives and they are based on India. Can they even post job ads on this board?
Do you mean apart from them buying 2 Indian co's

They are wonderful for Indian MT.
OP is probably Indian, hence the spelling.
What's up with the Indian job ad on the classifieds?
Good grief!
It is an Indian run company.
Indian Company, are you sure??? nm
Indian MTs versus US MTs sm
I QA'd Indian work for about a year and a half and for the particular ones I QA'd, they did not seem to grasp feedback. The same errors by the same MTs would come across again and again. Additionally, please remembers that most of the Indian MTs are sent to cream of the crop dictators and all that is left for the US MTs are all the crap. That combined with low rates, they try to do as much as they can to try to make money and pay the bills. Just my opinion; please don't flame!
Indian company........nm
they are an Indian Company
Yes and no. They are an Indian company so

$$ not bad if you live in India, but they only hire US editors to clean up the junk tha comes back from India and that is no where near enough money.   Because of them my company went out of business. 

They are Indian owned and run.
Indian MTs are not as productive as US MTs
It's a common fact; they send work to double QA. There was an article in Advance that I will try and find to provide a link that states this.

I doubt Transcend would lie about the work they send to India in their press releases and investor calls, they could get into a whole lot of trouble, and for what reason - just to stop the bashing on this board?

Indian owned and run....
It is being overtaken by Indians....used to be a great company - not anymore. Many have left there lately.

They'll just use you to make the Indians' work smell good to the US based clients then kick you to the curb. I wouldn't go there if my life depended on it now!
Indian giver?
How can you use a racist phrase like that when you know good well that the white man has taken this country from them and decimated their people? 
thats what an Indian Giver is
A white man who gives the Indian a gift and then takes it away!
Indian giver.....
Although I am not 100% cherokee, I too am of Cherokee blood and I don't see that as a racist remark either. And all those righteous folks who blame all the white people of taking our land, well, several of those white people were my great uncles who married Cherokee women. There are very old writings of theirs in our ancestry where they did say they married them at first because they were against the Cherokee being forced to leave their land and that would give them a way to stay and farm. They then go on to say how they fell in love with those women and they did have many many children, many of whom were given Cherokee names along with their white man names; this was so they could get into school without prejudice. I am proud of both and I do resent all those self-righteous folks who think all white men took indian land. My white folk married Cherokee women in order for them to keep their land.

Yep, just trying to stir the pot! Get a life!
Indian giver
The term Indian Giver is a phrase I learned way back as a youngster.  It simply meant to me then and now, someone who gives someone something and then takes it back. How the phrase came about, I have no clue, but I know one thing for sure, I certainly was not intending to use it in a racist manner.  I will have to Google the term and perhaps learn how it came about and if it does indeed have a meaning behind other than what I perceive the meaning to be...will let you know if I find one.
Indian Giver
Let's give Indian Giver a NEW meaning. The MTSOs gave us work, then took it away to send to India..thus, would the REAL India givers please stand up!
The Indian MTs CANNOT even understand...sm
their OWN native doctors....and this is true because I work in QA management and the reason they get all the good easy reports from the US is because of this. This is pitiful.
