Rush Transcription 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 & broadcast industry, the corporate, academic, & PR world has incredibly tight deadlines as well. People need their conference calls, meetings, and interviews transcribed very quickly.

Flawless Transcription offers four types of rush transcription services:

  • Same Day Rush
  • 24 Hour Rush
  • Weekend and After Hours Rush – Limited Availability
  • Rush Closed Captioning Services

How Much Rush Audio Can We Transcribe?

Generally we can transcribe 2 to 3 hours of audio within the same business day. 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. Transcription with time stamps or time code is an additional $0.25 per minute.

When files are sent after hours we can deliver the files the following morning by 10 am EST. However, after hours transcription should be scheduled in advance when possible.

Our 24 hour rush transcription service starts at $2.75/minute. For example, if you send us a file at noon on a Monday you will have a transcript back no later than Tuesday at noon.
