Good day!

I am writing to request feedback on what constitutes a normal or typical rate for same-language transcription work. We have had very few requests for such services in the past, but the demand seems to be on the upswing and I would appreciate having a sense of what is a reasonable rate per audio minute for transcribing audio files into the same language as that spoken. Transcriptions would need to include time stamps to identify any portions of audio that are unintelligible or inaudible.

If you would be so kind as to post here or email me at it would be greatly appreciated.
