Fame K., English and Spanish Editor and Voice Writer in Florida
“There are several points as to why working with 3Play thrills me. First of all, I spent the majority of my life with a grandmother who was hard of hearing, and captions were her lifeline to accessing televised content. I know the importance of the work that we do at 3Play.
Having a deep love for languages, I’ve spent many years as an English teacher to students of foreign languages. Just as I was motivated to help my students relay their thoughts in a different language, I find the act of translating spoken words to a textual form extremely interesting. There’s a bit of an art and challenge to it, and I find that rewarding.
Additionally, I’m interested in a broad range of topics. Since 3Play provides captions for a wide variety of content, if I’m not able to utilize my general knowledge to tackle a project, I’m always happy to do some research and learn a thing or two from the videos I work on as an added benefit.
I’m happy at 3Play, specifically, because its work environment suits me very well. Everyone at 3Play is extremely friendly, respectful, and supportive. I’m provided reasonable pay and opportunities to grow in the company. For example, this year, I was welcomed to the new live captioning team. Experts in the field helped advance the skills needed to provide this exciting service. It’s fulfilling to know that every opportunity 3Play gives me is an opportunity I can extend to others by providing the accessibility they need with the content I caption. Due to all of these things, I look forward to working many years with 3Play in any capacity I can.”
Daniel T., English Editor in Indiana
“I have an organic urban farm that supplies restaurants and area farmer’s markets. Sometimes I am incredibly busy and sometimes I am not. Even a regular part-time job absolutely wouldn’t work because it wouldn’t be flexible enough for what I do. 3Play is perfect because I am able to work when I can, and cut back when I can’t. Plus it adds a very nice supplemental income during my off-season when the farm work is bringing in less!”
Zeudi V., English Editor in Georgia
“3Play is a good fit for me because I own my own photography business, am a full time wife and mother of a 14yo, 2.5yo, and 3 month old and part time caregiver for my elderly father. So, needless to say, my schedule is full. However, when I have a free moment [and am not asleep ;-)], I can log onto the site and if jobs are available I am able to make money. This has been very helpful if I get an unexpected bill or expense or during the down season for my business.”
Jeremy J., English Editor in Hawaii
“I have enjoyed working for 3Play since day one. A few months after I began, I quit my full-time job. Then I packed up everything I had and moved to Hawaii! I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to be able to move around as freely as I choose.
I plan on moving again soon to parts unknown. I am very thankful that no matter where I go, I always have work as long as there is internet access. It has transformed me into a digital nomad, which was a dream of mine I had never realized was possible before this.”
Monika H., English Editor and Audio Describer in North Carolina
“I’ve had a varied career since graduating from college. I’ve worked for an ad agency, an independent bookstore, a library, and run technology for a large financial firm. When my husband and I started a family, we decided that I would stay home since he travels a lot for his job. I wanted to keep working, but I was looking for something that I could do from home that would let me set my own schedule.
Transcription and captioning appealed to me because I’ve always loved writing and editing, and I have a good eye for grammar and copy accuracy. And it’s great to know that we’re helping people who are hard of hearing have access to electronic media. 3Play is a great fit for me because it lets me choose from various assignments to build a flexible schedule from week to week.”
Carolyn B., English Editor in Florida
“3Play allows me to work from the comfort of my home and use my typing skills and knowledge of the English language in order to generate income at my convenience. I am currently in Bible School here in Florida, so 3Play has become even more important to me in helping to generate the income I need to cover living expenses, but do so in a very enjoyable manner.”
Emily C., English Editor in Texas
“3Play is a great fit for me. As a homeschooling mom and piano teacher, I needed to start ramping up my income earnings fast when my husband was facing not finding a new job after losing his current employment. Piano students can’t always come for lessons in the middle of the day, or early morning hours, so 3Play gives me the opportunity to earn money at times when my other job doesn’t. It also doesn’t require me to use a car or other resources (like business clothes, packing lunches, etc) so I can contribute financially to my family without sacrificing being with them.”
