BRITISH/UK TRANSCRIBERS NEEDED (New York)

If you know how to transcribe British/UK English (native speakers are ideal), you're persnickety about language, and you can legally work in the United States, do this transcription job from home on your own schedule!

Essentially, the work involves listening to short audio clips of people talking into their phones and then typing what they say. We are looking for good spellers who instinctively understand the difference between your and you're, and who understand how to search for things using Google.

The work is broken into individual audio clips or 'utterances' that you would hear from someone using talk-to-text. An utterance might be something short, like 'Call Mum', or it could be the address of a store, or a Google search, or one side of a spoken text message. The length of these utterances tends to average out. Every batch of 50 utterances is referred to as a 'bundle'.

Transcription is compensated at a rate of $2.70 per 'bundle' Protected content . But if you have time and want to earn more, the rate increases for everything you do over 50 bundles in a week. This is not something you have to do full time; we are flexible - we just expect a certain minimum commitment each week.

Great typing skill isn't necessary; the key is accuracy in writing things down correctly, and the work can be challenging.

We have a new project starting very soon so we are looking for people who can start right away.

Remember, you must understand how to transcribe British English and be legally allowed to work in the United States.

In order to be considered for a position, or to get more information, please follow these instructions:

1) Send an email expressing interest to Protected content , containing only the words 'UK TRANSCRIPTION JOB' in the subject line.
2) Copy your resume into the body of the email. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY ATTACHMENTS.

Thank you. We look forward to working with you!
