How Etranscript's charge rates work


Transcription services

When quoting for transcription, Etranscript quotes per recorded minute of audio or video, i.e. an interview that is 65 minutes in duration will be quoted as 65 x rate; thus providing an upfront indication of the total cost for the transcription of your files.

Please contact Etranscript for a quotation.  

Document services

Administration and document tasks are charged on a per-hour basis. Tasks are timed using specialised software and time sheets are sent to the client along with the invoice. 


Payment Arrangements 

  • Payment for ongoing work - transcription and typing work received from clients on a regular, ongoing basis is invoiced on the 25th of each calendar month.
  • Payment for project work - invoices for project work will be sent to clients on a monthly basis until completion of the project.
  • Payment for once-off, smaller tasks or projects - invoices are sent to the client on completion of the task.


Making payments 

Payment is due on presentation of the invoice and can be made via EFT (South Africa) or telegraphic transfer (international). Banking details will be provided on the invoice.
