Hello Odeskers! What is the proper rate for an audio per hour of a transcription job? I've seen a lot of transcription job posted and noticed that some offered very low rate?So, what is the rate for a 1 hour audio? Any idea please....

Hi Julie Ann there is not a proper rate for transcription or set rate, everybody charges a different rate. It depends how confident you are in transcribing with accents, formatting, grammar, etc. A lot of the transcription jobs are ridiculously low priced which I would not bid for, but I am in a different country from yourself so pay, etc varies to what you can comfortably live on and charge.
Hope this helps

You need to first know how long it takes you to do an audio hour of transcription - and it is of course a lot, lot more than an hour of your time. Then factor in how much per hour you are prepared to receive to make it worth your while. Then just do the sums. Don't sell yourself short.
