Where to find the best rates for Australian based Transcription Services in 2018?

Transcription Services Rates

OUR process for DETERMINING transcription services rates.

In April 2018, using Google, Transcript Divas searched for the top ten transcription services based in Australia. We then emailed the top ten to request a quote on their transcription rates per hour for a clearly recorded, one to one interview – their 24hr rate, their lowest rates, payment options, and to confirm if the transcription was actually completed in Australia. For a full list of our rates: Transcript Divas Transcription Rates.

Confidentiality Concerns: We have seen that privacy and confidentiality is a rising issue among our clients. Particularly the fact that work completed outside Australia is not subject to privacy or confidentiality legislation making privacy processes null and void.

Transcript Divas Top the Results: Out of the ten Transcription Service we contacted eight replied. This is slightly better than previous service review in 2017 where seven services replies out of the ten. Most replied with a few hours – a good response.

After analyzing the replies we were surprised to find that Transcript Divas Australia came out on top. The Divas had one of the lowest transcription rates per hour and were the only service to offer a 200% guarantee on both timelines and accuracy. Many agencies did not reply for a quote request (see: Full list of our Transcription Rates)
