We need dedicated Engligh language transcribers on our team, who meet or exceed our guidelines.
On average, we will pay $75 per hour of recording transcribed. This depends on the complexity of the discussion (how many speakers, audio quality etc). Sometimes it will be less, sometimes it will be more, but this will be the average.
NOTE: This is not paid for the time that you spend transcribing, but paid by the duration of the recording that you are transcribing. Please understand this distinction clearly.
We have transcription jobs continuously, so you have a high likelihood of having regular consistent work from us if you demonstrate that you meet or exceed our guidelines.
Literal transcription of exact words, BUT removing repetitive use of "um", "ya know", or other words or sounds frequently repeated by the speaker, when those words do not pertain to the subject being spoken of.
Every transcript document must provide bold time stamps under each name for each party speaking. It must match our format shown here.

You also must be able to create a bullet point summary of the entire recording on request. We won't always request this, but your abilitly to understand the subject discussed, whatever it is, and put it into bullet point summary, will be required for this job. We pay an extra $10-20 for summaries requested for every hour of recording transcribed, but only when we specificially request this extra service.
Your ability to work within deadlines is also crucial. Our typical deadline for one hour of recording transcribed, from request to completed job, is 24-36 hours.
In order to see if you qualify for our team, your application must consist of a short test. We don't care what your credentials are, what your past experience is, or how good you think you are. We only care how well you do on this test.
This is a standard test that we have devised for this purpose. It is extracted from a job that was successfully completed long ago by another transcriber already on our team, so you are not doing any new work for us in this test, and therefore, your test results will be compared against the job that our current transcriber did on this job months ago.

Please transcribe from time 7:00 to time 8:00. That is your test.
Please make sure your application contains your test results document. If it does not, we will automatically decline or ignore your application.
The final product you deliver should be a WORD Document, and should be named the same as the source recording file provided to you for each job.
