I’m ready. How do we get started?
If it is a straightforward project, we can typically provide a quote ASAP (within 1 business day). From there, we’ll need your audio or video to transcribe as well as complete billing information.
For larger projects and accounts, we usually start with a discovery call, followed by a short exploration phase where we work with you to define the project scope and services we can help you with. We’ll then proceed to share our cost estimate, prepare a contract and schedule kickoff calls with our teams. Once the paperwork is complete, we get to work!
How much do you charge?
Our pricing structures are designed to be industry competitive, transparent, and fair.
For projects or one-time transcription, rates range from $2.49 to $3.49 per minute, depending on the number of speakers and level of quality assurance requested. Volume discounts may apply.
