Get Transcribed – Employment Details
Get Transcribed is a fairly new company. It was created in 2012 and has quickly become quite popular on work at home blogs and forums. At this moment they deal exclusively in transcription work but I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t soon add copywriting to the list of services they provide. Even though the company is based in Ohio, they’re willing to work with transcribers who hail from Canada, the United States, Australia, and Europe, though a strong grasp of English language will be expected.
Anyone, no matter how experienced, is invited to apply to work for Get Transcribed. You will have to take a test and score an 85%. After you have taken the test, you will be expected to maintain a steady 98% accuracy rating in order to continue to accept transcription work.
Doing transcription work for Get Transcribed isn’t going to make you rich. The company’s payment plan is on the low side. Most of their transcriptionists report making $0.23 per minute for audio files, but that’s still higher than some of the other sites I’ve checked out. Plus if you qualify to work as a quality check worker you can get paid $0.12 for every single minute of audio file that you review. The money adds up quickly.
The company does have a great deal of work available and most of the files are fairly short and are very clear and can be translated quite quickly.
I don’t like the fact that Get Transcribed only makes a payment once a month, and then only if you’ve earned a $100. Payments are deposited directly into your Paypal account.
Even though Get Transcribed is a legit source of income, it’s not one of my personal favorites, mostly because of the fact that they only pay once a month and have such a high payment threshold. While there might be other opportunities with higher rates, it could be a great way to get some experience to help you work your way up to more lucrative transcription opportunities.
