Rush Transcribing Service

rush transcription

Film & television projects are often on a very tight deadline & budget. Directors, producers, and editors need work done as soon as possible. The shooting & production schedules are more condensed than ever in the digital age. Because of the internet there is pressure to release new content every day.

Because of these deadlines people in the television industry often need their transcripts back right away and we have you covered.

Even if you’re not in the film industry, the corporate & PR world has incredibly tight deadlines as well. People need their conference calls, meetings, and interviews transcribed very quickly.

Flawless Transcription offers two types of rush transcription services: same day rush and next business day (or 24 hour) rush.

How Much Rush Audio Can We Transcribe?

Generally we can transcribe 2 to 3 hours of audio within the same day. Files must be sent by 5pm. The rate for same day transcription is $3.75 per minute of audio. For example, a 10 minute rush audio file will cost $37.50.

If files are sent after hours we can deliver the files the following morning by 9am, or if we have availability we can transcribe files for you that evening.

Our 24 hour rush transcription service starts at $2.75/minute. We guarantee your transcript will be completed within 24 hours. If you send us a file at noon on a Monday you will have it back no later than Tuesday at noon, and that is a guarantee.

We also offer weekend rush services as well. Transcripts sent to us on Saturday can be turned around that day or by Sunday morning. Availability over the weekend can be limited and we do suggest arranging your weekend projects in advance.

What Types of Files Do We Accept for Rush Transcription?

We accept all audio and video formats including, but not limited to: MP3, Mp4, WMA, WMV, AIF, WAV, and MOV files. We also accept overnight shipment of DVDs and hard drives.
