I need a British freelancer to help transcribe 1750 minutes of interviews conducted as part of a research project. There are a number of files (totalling 1750 minutes), which cover interviews between a single interviewer and a number of different participants (all British, but accents vary; typically west country, northern, welsh etc.).
I would like to pay for the work in 3 milestone payments, to ensure that the freelancer is paid as work is released, and also to improve the turnaround time (the transcription is needed ASAP!) so that additional analysis can be conducted from the transcriptions.
In terms of the format of the transcription, there is no need for time description or discourse analysis. As a result, the use of "um's", "err's" etc can be omitted, but the rest needs to be accurate.
I appreciate this is a lot of work, and I am not looking to work with a company on this. I would prefer a single, dedicated individual, who has extensive transcription experience, to ensure both accuracy and consistency of the transcriptions. In addition, you must be available to start work immediately, and can be contacted via phone, skype or e-mail. I am looking to have all of the transcriptions complete by the end of August, ideally.
Finally, I am unable to post a sample of this work due until awarded, but the audio is clear, and only two voices are ever heard at once. The subject matter is education / teaching.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have before bidding on this work.
Thankyou for taking the time to review this job.
