What is transcribing and how does it work?

Transcribing includes printing or writing out audio speech or thoughts. Basically, you print out what other people are saying and get paid for just that. There's more to transcribing than just that.

How much does transcribing pay and can you make a living from it?

Transcribing is the most challenging online job. The reason being that transcribing requires you to have good grammar skills. Being a challenge is no exception to someone who's willing to really make money online from just printing out what other people say. Some transcribing sites will pay you $20+ per hour. Who said hard and challenging work doesn't pay? Don't get me wrong though. Transcribing is not hard. It's also not easy.

How to become a transcriber?

Being a transcriber is as easy as reading this post. Some sites do not need any qualifications at all. All you have to do is to join one of the transcribing sites and apply to be a transcriber. You'll be given an online exam you can complete in your own spare time. After successfully passing that exam, you'll then be a transcriber on that site you applied on. Isn't that easy to do, provided that you pass the exam. Well, if you happen to fail the exam you"ll be given a re-test. Some websites do not offer a re-test at all. Some do offer a re-test but at limited times.

Which websites can I apply to be a transcriber on?

1. TranscribeMe

Transcribe Me pays users $0.79 per minute which equals $47.4 per hour if my calculations are correct. Many people consider trying out Transcribe Me as it has a high payout and it's a reliable company. No qualification required as long as you have good grammar skills.

2. Rev

Rev offers users earn up to $250 per month on average. With the top monthly earners at $1000+ per month. Also, at Rev, you have to have good grammar skills and spend time reading their style guide.

How to pass transcription tests?

Passing transcription tests is hard work. But being a transcriber pays a lot than the hard work you put in. To ensure that you pass all transcription test, you have to ensure that you read Transcribe Me or Rev's guides. DO NOT go online(YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc) and copy from transcribers. Passing an exam will not be the end of everything. The above two sites will still ensure that you deliver the best service to their customers. Remember that you'll be transcribing for big companies or anyone. So your transcription will be reviewed. If the customer is not happy with it, your account will be deleted. Make sure that you read the guide on your own. Rather look for explanations online, but don't copy. You'll be all alone when you transcribe. Have fun!
