Sure! When uploading your project, simply add a note asking for the format you need (.srt, etc.).

When choosing the transcription option, you will receive a written version of your audio/video. Our rate for transcription is $2.0 per minute.

9. How can I tell the word count?

We automatically count the words in common file types such as MS Office, and PDFs etc.). For scanned documents, where we cannot automatically count the number of words you will need to count them yourself manually, or email it to us to do the word count on your behalf.

11. What is PayPal?

PayPal is the safest, easiest way to pay and get paid online. Register using PayPal.com.

Translation Speed

12. How long does it take?

Translation of one 220-word page takes one hour ONCE the translator starts working. A professional translator can translate about 2,000 words per day. We can speed up the process by assigning the big job to more than one translator at the same time.
