Experience Level: Entry
I run a freelance transcription business and have a number of digitally recorded interviews to type.

You are bidding on one roughly 60 minute .wmv file. Deadline is within 24 hours of receipt of file, no later than Wednesday 20 July at 5pm GMT.

Successful applicants will need to have experience in digital audio transcription, can type a minimum of 65 wpm, have their own high speed internet connection, and their own transcription software and foot pedal. The successful candidate/s must be able to pay close attention to detail, and communication is a must (e.g. confirm successful download of digital file, ask for clarification if required etc). If the work standard is good, further work may follow.

Please note that successful applicants will be given an FTP link to download the original .wmv video file, so you will need to be familiar with FTP protocol and have the relevant FTP software (or access using Microsoft Explorer). In addition, depending on your transcription software, you will likely need the relevant software to convert a .wmv file to a mp3 file.

Pay is £0.45 per audio minute (therefore if file is 60 minutes, pay = 60 x 0.45 = £27).

Candidates must be willing to sign a confidentiality agreement, and submit the completed file on a MS Word template within 24 hours of receiving file link. Link to digital file, transcription guidelines & template will be provided.

Please note that deposit amount must be less than the total amount payable for the job (e.g. less than £20).

Good luck!
