Job Description


Transcription Express, Inc. is a well-established transcription services provider that  has been in business since 1995.  We specialize in verbatim interview style transcription for large corporations.  We currently work with over 190 freelance subcontractor Transcriptionists who process over 18,000 transcripts per month.   

We are looking for skilled, reliable, and deadline driven transcription subcontractors who want to work with a transcription company that is prepared to provide transcription work on a regular, steady, and ongoing basis, Monday through Friday.  

Our system is simple: Transcriptionists can download client audio files via the internet to their computer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via our online digital system. Transcriptionists work on their transcripts in the comfort of their own home or office.  When transcripts are completed they must be uploaded back to Transcription Express within 24-hours of receipt. Equipment is minimal, but should include a PC or laptop with the Windows 10Pro operating systems and high-speed internet. A digital footpedal, headset and system access license are required to use our system.

Transcription contractors can be located in most states in the US and must have reliable high-speed internet.  Qualified transcriptionists should be prepared to receive client files 5 days a week, Monday through Friday.  Due to our large volume of client audios, transcriptionists should expect to dedicate a minimum of 3 to 5 hours per day/5 days a week (Monday through Friday) or more to transcription. Additionally, due to our strict document turnaround time requirements and general reliability concerns, we prefer not to contract with people who already have full-time positions or contracts with other companies.  

This is production-type work and subcontractors are paid for each page produced, Depending on typing speed and the amount of transcription completed daily, most transcriptionists earn from $600 to $1600.00 plus per month after a probationary period. Completion of our online Freelancer Qualification Program is required in order to receive client audio files.
