Transcription Jobs. Who can be a Hero?

Interested in transcription jobs? Would you love to work from home? Hate commuting to work? Like flexible hours? Then a transcription job on the Transcript Heroes transcriptionist team could be for you!

We have all sorts of Heroes working for us. What they share is the ability to deliver on time, they like to get things right the first time and they realise that over-delivering to a client secures the work for everyone.

How much is a Transcriptionist paid?

Usually, the first thing that people want to know is – how much will I get paid? So, let’s just be upfront and get this out of the way.  As an example, in January 2020 our highest rate was $2.00/minute of recording transcribed (our lowest rate was $1.16/minute). The average rate over the month was $1.32/minute. 

Just to be clear from the onset, we are NOT here to ‘short change’ transcriptionists. This is not what Transcript Heroes are about and never will be. We aim to beat the average hourly rate for transcriptionists working in the Canada. We also commit to enabling contractors to hit above the Canadian Living Wage.

Transcript Heroes are commonly seen amongst the contractors as paying the highest, or near the highest,  contractor rates in Canada. It is not uncommon for team members to end up working with us for a number of years.

The rates we offer depend on what the client orders. In general, the more time it takes to transcribe a certain project (e.g. poor quality recording/more people speaking etc.) the more we charge the client. In turn, the higher the rate is for the typist.
