We introduced our transcription service last week to all users, and I thought I’d write how it works for those who were wondering.
After you complete an interview, you’ll have the option to get it transcribed.
When placing the order, you can choose from a number of different packages depending on how fast you need the transcription.
Once we’ve received payment, the interview is queued and assigned to one of our transcribers who then get to work.
Once they’re marked the transcription as complete, you’ll receive an email containing a formatted PDF file, as well as being able to view the transcription from your account at anytime.
How large is the transcription team?
Currently, we have five transcriptions as well as a lead transcriptionist. We have a pool we can call on to add more if we need to anytime as well, which means we can quickly grow to handle any number of orders.
How is the pricing organized?
Pricing is per-minute, based on the length of the interview and the package you choose, our packages are:
- Budget Transcriptions (a 10 – 12 day turnaround): $1.00 a minute
- 6 Day Transcriptions (within 6 days): $1.50 a minute
- 3 to 5 Day Transcriptions (within 3 to 5 days): $2.00 a minute
- 24 Hour Transcriptions (within 1 day): $2.50 a minute
Don’t others offer similar services?
Sure, but we wanted to do this in-house, and we’ve had requests for transcription services since the site first launched, so it’s always been planned, and the timing was right to do it now as we enter our second year.
