Project Description

I'm a journalist who is looking for somebody to transcribe audio interviews.

The interviews usually cover topics related to technology, travel and design, and are conducted in English (usually with people with Australian, English or American accents).

While there is some 'jargon' in these interviews I do NOT need the sort of 100% precise transcription required by lawyers, doctors etc – just the ability to quickly transcribe and, where there is a word or phrase not understood, for this to be written phonetically and flagged (perhaps by following that word with a * mark).

This will make your transcription job a lot faster and easier than having to often stop the recording, rewind and listen again to try and find out what word was used – a fact which I expect to see reflecting in your rates. Once again, I do NOT require the same degree of word-perfect accuracy as a lawyer or doctor.

The interviews are recorded as digital audio files (usually WMA or MP4) and will be sent to the transcriber via email.

I will require an average turnaround of 6 hours.

The transcript can be returned to me via email as a DOC or TXT file.

Please advice your rate for transcribing 30 minutes of audio (note: a 45 minute interview would be costed at [url removed, login to view] the 30 minute rate).
