** DISCOUNT AVAILABLE! This rate will be discounted by 10% if the participants do not require individual identification.

Please note: Poor quality recordings and other factors can cause the transcription process to take significantly longer (for example, background noise, poor telephone connection, particularly strong accents), in which case an additional rate, ranging from £0.20 to £0.40 per recorded minute, may be added. We will of course always advise our clients if we anticipate a higher rate being required before starting a transcript. To avoid this issue, and the quality of a transcript being negatively affected by the quality of the recording, we recommend reading our article on Tips for Recording Interviews and Focus Groups.
