Audio Transcription - ongoing work

Freelancers,

I have a number of audio presentations and lectures, and I need someone with excellent English to transcribe them to Microsoft Word (2003 version).

I want you to produce an accurate and readable transcript. This means you should not transcribe verbatim but you need to be accurate. Leave out false starts, speaker hesitations, background noises, all ums and ahs and filler words such as "like", and "kind of". Don’t paraphrase - you need to transcribe what the speaker says, not just the general idea of what was said.

The audio is in mp3 format, and is good quality.

Initially, I have a series comprising 10 one-hour lectures. I'd like to have each one transcribed and sent back to me, before I send out the next audio file. I will make payment for each one as it is done by GAF escrow, so you can be sure of getting paid. You don't have to risk doing a large amount of work with the worry of never getting paid for it. This also allows me to check the quality of submitted work on an ongoing basis, and offer guidance and clarifications to you in order to assist with subsequent work.

This project is featured, so there are no commissions taken out of your bid.

I propose a rate of $10 per audio hour. [Inexperienced bidders, note that transcribing one audio hour could take as long as five hours.]

Some questions for bidders -

1) How long will it take you to transcribe 1 hour of audio?

2) How long will it take you to return the completed work?

3) What's your experience?

4) What is your bid for an hourly rate (i.e. your rate for transcribing one hour of good quality single-speaker audio)?

5) What equipment or software do you have, to allow you to transcribe from mp3 to Word?

I'm providing some attachments -

* a Word document with guidelines on my expectations for the transcription.

* a Word template, showing the format of the work you should do.

* a 2 min 20 sec mp3 file, so you can see what you are bidding on.

I will ask those on the short list to transcribe the mp3 file as a trial. Apologies, this test will be unpaid, but I need to be sure that your grammar, spelling, and transcription skills are excellent. It wouldn't be fair to award you an hour's transcription (potentially 4 or 5 hours work) if I wasn't sure that your work would be of acceptable quality - neither you nor I would be happy with the outcome.

I would like to use the winning bidder for further work in the future. For some of the future work, the audio quality is not as good, and we will negotiate a higher rate for this material. The work is not usually urgent - but for future urgent work, again we can negotiate a higher rate. There is a possibility of using your services for transcription of business meetings, which will be harder, with multiple speakers - again, we will negotiate an appropriate rate for this.

Remember, I need someone with excellent English.

Good luck!

Kevin Mullen
