What I Offer:


How much do I charge for a transcript?

Forget waiting for word counts or total pages or hours of effort. You know exactly how much you pay before the project is even submitted! I charge a flat rate of:

2,00 € per audio minute

So, if you have one hour of audio, regardless of audio quality or content, it will be 120,00 €.
