I need transcripts made of approximately 6 hours of interviews conducted in English. Interviews are located in a dropbox folder that will be shared with you upon awarding the project. Please provide a quote with a charge per hour of recording - bids not on this basis will be ignored.
You will be required to sign an NDA, and after completion of the project delete all files. Please include with your bid your full name, address and an email address for legal notices so that we can fill in the NDA.
On awarding the project I will ask you to complete an initial transcription of an approximately 1 hour recording, which will be checked for accuracy and compliance with the project directions below. If this first hour is acceptable then we shall proceed to the the remaining 5 hours of recordings, if not the project shall be terminated and you shall be paid for the first hour. I also need completion within 1 week - 10% of the project value will be a separate milestone for timely delivery.
The milestones will be 1: transcribed 1 hour of recording, 2: transcribed 5 hours of recording, and 3: completion of milestone 1 and 2 within 1 week.
