How GoTranscript offers low transcription services rates
First, let's start with the obvious: An online transcription service like ours has low overhead costs.
Although we do have an office in Edinburgh, Scotland, most of our transcribers work from their home office. Our team consists of nearly 20,000 members worldwide. Clearly, an office large enough to hold them all would cost a considerable sum of money.
By letting our staff members work from home, we can offer you a better variety of skillsets. Our diverse transcribers can process languages, dialects, and slang that one local team couldn't.
And by taking paper files out of the equation, we reduce the room for routing errors, eliminate lost files, and save on postage. Not to mention that 100% digital transcription services are better for the environment.
For example, if your podcast addresses retirement issues or health concerns that are more common in an older population, you're doing yourself a disservice if you're not providing a podcast transcript along with your recording.
