I am looking for a few quality transcribers who are SERIOUS about their work and want to work when needed. Workflow is not guaranteed but typically there are a few files per week to select from.
Deadlines for files will be different per file as well as the length, audio quality, and number of speakers. I need individuals who are serious about their work and take pride in delivering a quality transcript on time and as accurate as possible. If you are simply looking to do one or two files every month or so please do not bid! If you cannot adhere to a deadline then please do not waste your time bidding. I have no tolerance for providers who deliver work whenever they feel like it. The deadlines that I set forth are firm!
The pay is twice per month on the 16th and the 30/31st and the pay is 15 cents per audio minute (not the number of hours/minutes it takes to transcribe it). The provider is also responsible for their own fees associated with oDesk.
I will provide all guidelines, templates and samples upon hire. I have work available now and am looking for providers who can turnaround at least one audio hour in 24 hours or less. Work is on a first come, first serve basis. You are never required to take work but I would trust that if you claim a file you are able to deliver it without excuses and to at least 98% accuracy.
I have many files with UK/Australian accents as well as US English so the ability to work with various accents is a must! Please do not bid if you are not comfortable with the pay rate, turnarounds and if you can only transcribe one accent. I need providers who are able to do various jobs without issues.
Skills you must possess:
High standards for transcription quality
Ability to be a self-starter/follow directions
Ability to meet deadlines
Ability to proof your own work
