1192RE: [ScopingBuddies] Re: Transcription charge
- Apr 7, 2010
I was just catching up on my emails...I have to agree with Alicia, the rates do seem to vary quite a bit. Donnette, you stated your base rates are $225/audio hour or $4.20 per page, are you AAERT certified? I guess what I am asking is what experience or background do you have that qualifies you to charge those rates? I hope my question is not coming across in a wrong way. I am truly curious, I have been doing transcription now for over a year and have finally begun to get more legal transcription work and the most I’ve charged per page on a 25 line per page transcript is $2.00 based on my experience. I am hoping to become AAERT certified this year which will also allow me to bump up my pricing. Again, I am aware that rates vary but I just want to know why.

Thanks, Donnette. Seems to vary a little with rates. I'm not that familiar with the transcription end of things. Although I do remember a long time ago working on a job a local CR sent my way, and I hated it. I undercharged, and it took FOREVER to do. I even had another scopist helping me out on it. Live and learn. :)
