Hi everyone,

 

GER>ENG(GB) translator here. I was just reading in the newsletter that Gengo are now offering transcription services in English. I was wondering whether anyone knows whether these will be available to all English translators automatically, or whether it's something you have to be selected for/ask to be assigned to.

Cheers,

Claire

    Hi Claire and everyone else,

    I would like to know the answer to this question too, I scanned the page explaining the transcription service but found no way to register as a transcriptionist, and I didn't see any relevant tests available. I would think that the inclusion of the news in the newsletter means we can be involved in some way. Then again, I didn't see any given rates for transcription either...

    Hi Claire & Angela,

    Thank you for your interest in our new Transcription service! 

    You can take the Transcription test (English) here.

    However, please do note that, as this is a service that we've just started, we don't have many ongoing projects (yet!), but we're very excited to see where this will take us. Please do feel free to spread the word about this new service if you know anybody in need of English transcription! :)

    Thanks,

    Lara

    Thanks, Lara! Could you also tell us how the transcription projects are paid - by minute or by word? What is the rate?

    Hi Nataša, and thanks for your interest! 

    Transcription projects will be paid by minute. As for rates, the plan is to start with $0.50 per minute for pure transcription, but we're open to making changes, and rates may differ from project to project depending on audio quality and other variables. 

    Hope this helps!
