Quotes & Rates

Our rates are on a per recorded minute basis and may vary depending on the quality of the recordings. The rates below are for  interviews recorded in a quiet, indoor location and for phone-calls/VC on a clear line and are transcribed ‘intelligent verbatim*‘.

We recognise that due to the present situation with regards to Covid-19, researchers aren’t always able to carry out their research interviews in- person. We are offering  the same rate for VC/telephone interviews as in -person interviews throughout this time.

 * these prices refer to the standard format of ‘intelligent verbatim‘: texts don’t indicate non-lexical verbal sounds, stutters, filler words.  Repeated words and false start sentences can be edited out. Please ask for verbatim transcriptions if you require word-for-word transcriptions.

If you require time-stamping or certain criteria applied to your transcript, such as time-stamping on each page or redaction, this will incur extra per minute costings.
