What are your guidelines for manual transcriptions?
To understand the guidelines for manual transcriptions and captions, please read our blog here.
Are the working hours flexible?
Yes, you can work whenever suits you best, as long as the assignment is submitted before the deadline.
How do taxes work?
If you have a valid European VAT-number you can charge us the appropriate percentage of VAT. If you do not have a VAT number, you cannot charge us VAT and you are responsible for paying the legally required taxes within your country. We therefore advise you to sign up at a local Payroller so that they will take care of your financial administration.
What is the deadline for accepted jobs?
For most jobs, you will have 48 hours to complete after accepting a job on the platform.
How will I receive jobs?
We work with a transcriber platform where you see an overview of all jobs assigned or available to you. When we assign or invite you for a job, you will also be notified via email or slack (which is used to communicate with our transcriber base on a daily basis).
What does the application process look like, and when will I be approved to start working for Amberscript?
At the moment, we receive a lot of applications. Therefore it can take a couple of weeks before we get back to you (waiting time also depends on your native language(s)). Once we reach out to you, you will be requested to do a test job based on the Amberscript guidelines. You will have 48 hours to take the test. If you pass; which we will let you know within a few days, you can start working immediately.
Are there mandatory working hours and do I have to work a minimum amount of hours each month?
No. You determine when you work and how often you work. However, keep in mind that when you accept a job, it needs to be submitted before the set deadline.
How does the payment work?
You will be paid out every month either by bank transfer or PayPal. You can choose your preferred payout method. You will receive an invoice template from us, which you can use to create your invoices for us.
What is your hourly pay?
We pay per transcribed audio minute. Depending on the length of the file and the speed of your transcribing, you will earn between €7,50 and €15,00 per hour.
What is the difference between “Clean read” and “Full verbatim”?
“Clean read” transcripts omit the use of stutters, repetitions and “uhms” or “uhh”. A “verbatim” transcript includes everything that is audible in the audio or video file. To learn more about the differences, read our blog.
