Hallo in die Runde!

Ich würde gerne wissen, welche wie hoch eine Pauschalvergütung für Transkriptionen sein kann (z. B. für Deutsch, Spanisch, Englisch, Französisch, Italienisch).

Ein Unternehmen in Südafrika bietet 0,61€ pro Audio-Minute... Bedenkt man, dass die Transkription öfters einen (im Idealfall) doppelten Zeitaufwand wie die Länge der Audiodatei voraussetzen, frage ich mich, ob diese Vergütung normal ist?

Kennt sich jemand damit aus, was man als Übersetzerin für eine Transkription verlangen kann?

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Hello everyone!

I would like to know which are the "normal" rates for transcriptions (e.g. for German, Spanish, English, French, Italian)?

A company in South Africa offers €0.61 per audio minute... Considering that the transcription often requires (depending on the quality of the recording) twice longer as the length of the audio file, I wonder whether this remuneration is normal?

Does anyone know what a translator can charge for a transcription?

Thanks a lot!

I can offer no useful answer for you except to remind you that transcription takes 5-10 times as long as the actual audio (not merely twice as long), so if they're offering €0.61 per audio minute, they're really offering between €0.06 and €0.10 per actual minute, in other words around €3.00 to €6.00 per actual hour. If you're happy with such a rate (or a rate that is similar), then I would recommend that you give it a try. Or, you could work as a waitress at McDonalds, and earn twice as much.

A big amount of translators are using PEMT = post-editing of machine translation.

Some transcribers are using post-editing of transcription.

https://www.realspeaker.net/ = machine transcription

Advantage: it is fast.

Disadvantages: there is a fee for transcribed time, transcribed text (or subtitles) is before downloading publicly visible for everyone, quality depends on talking person and topic, ...
