What do transcription services include?

Airtasker’s transcription services include what any other transcription job does: receiving your files, preparing the transcript based on the content, proofreading it, and sending the transcript to you for approval. 

You can request transcriptionists to help you run your business, conduct academic research, improve your medical & healthcare services, work on legal cases, or document your lectures at school. Simply provide your Tasker with the files, desired format or specifications, and wait for your transcription. If it’s your first time working with a transcriber, here’s how the process goes: 

Transcribing your files

First, you’ll need to send the audio or video files to your Tasker. This step can be done via email, sharing a couple of links, or even handing over a thumb drive or hard drive.  

Next, inform your Tasker about your desired format. You can simply have paragraphs indicating the speaker and what they said. You can ask for timestamps before every sentence or put the sentences in a table instead of in paragraph form. Or, you may need a file with SMTPE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) time code and frame labelling - something that will be useful if you want to create subtitles or closed captioning later on. 

Do make sure that you and your Tasker are on the same page regarding the transcript format. This helps minimise any errors or miscommunications during the process. Some Taskers may transcribe as they listen or watch, while others may go through the material once before transcribing. In general, experienced transcribers have techniques that help them go through your material accurately and quickly. They’ll also have a good idea of how long it’ll take them to transcribe your files, so you’ll know when to expect their output. 

Proofreading the transcript

When the Tasker is done creating the transcript, they’ll proofread it, checking it against the source material as well as your directives. A good transcriber will prioritise accuracy over speed. 

After checking the transcription, your Tasker sends the transcript to you (virtually or in-person). You may also request that they return the source materials or delete the files from their computer if privacy is a concern. 

Once you’re happy with the finished transcript, you can inform your Tasker, pay them, and thank them for a job well done. 

Administrative services

If you’re using our transcription services to help you run your business, you can also get other kinds of assistance through Airtasker! You can use our platform to request help with accounting, document administration, data & analysis, and different types of admin work. Just like with getting a transcription service, all you need to do is fill out a task post and wait for available Taskers to send an offer. You can even indicate your location if you want someone to help you out in your physical office instead of just virtually.

Need 2 Hours Transcription

$40

Sydney NSW, Australia

26th Feb 2019

I have 6 hours of summarised transcription to be done but I need it all done by 4pm today, so I'm breaking it down into chunks - this chunk is for 2 hours. To clarify, I don't need a word for word transcription, just a summary of the points and outcomes. This probably needs to be done via automated transcription software with the taskers just making some final formatting edits, rather than a full manual transcription due to the time requirement. If you think you can do more than 2 hours by 4pm, let me know :)
