How We Decide Our Rates

Lots of factors are considered when arriving at our prices. The best example is that a clear, non-technical, hour-long recording will take four times the recorded length to transcribe. If you then add additional speakers, complex terminology, or badly recorded audio, this increases the time needed to complete our process.

We also spend time proofreading, spell-checking, and referencing your work; all of which is reflected in our price.

Transcription Formats

We can also include extras such as line numbers, timecoding and BITC (Burnt-In Time Codes) which are often requested by our media clients. We provide this at no extra charge.


Time coding incorporates timings inserted into the transcript at fairly regular intervals, depending on your requirements. Time-coding is also particularly helpful for transcripts of interviews as it allows you to jump effortlessly to unclear or inaudible words in your transcript and fill in the correct word, if discernible to you.
