TranscribeMe Review – Good Job For Beginners?

This post may contain affiliate links. Regardless, I only recommend sites I've researched and/or used and trust.

TranscribeMe Requirements

The minimum age requirement to register is 18 years old. You will need to be fluent in English because almost all files are in English. Although there is no minimum typing speed, you would have an advantage if you can type accurately and fast. You only need a stable, reliable internet connection and a computer. As someone who has completed transcription work for TranscribeMe, it will greatly help you if

How does TranscribeMe Work?

You first need to apply on their website. Just fill out some personal information. To register, please go to:

Then you are taken to an explanation video. This video explains the application process, how to navigate the site, and how the transcription process will work.

Next, you will have to complete the exam. You will hear segments of audio and will need to transcribe it. After you’re done, submit, and if you were accurate, enough you’re excepted into the program and begin working immediately.

TranscribeMe Pay

They have the industry’s best rates, with earnings starting at $20 per audio hour and top monthly earnings at $2,200 (average monthly earnings are $250). They pay regularly and securely via PayPal. You can request payment at any time and receive money via PayPal for all the work completed on a weekly basis.
They are an amazing company to work for. You can work anytime you want. There is also opportunity to move up to QA and team lead based on your quality. Nevertheless, you don’t want to pass on this if you are just getting started with transcription. Perfect way to get your feet wet.


When are you paid and how?

Payday is on every Monday via Paypal granted you have reached the payout limit of $10.

I have passed the $10 payout limits but I have got paid for this week. Why is that?

The files you transcribe must be QAed before Monday in order to be counted towards your payout amount.

Many of you have wondering how many hours I put in each week to make the amounts I have been making.

I spend about 20 hours/week on the TranscribeMe Workhub. I am a Transcriber/QA/Reviewer. I can transcribe files, I can QA them and I also can review them. I have only been with them for a few months and have got two promotions so obtaining those jobs is easy if you maintain a good accuracy with your files. Knowing your style guide well and always doubling check if you are not sure helps keep a high accuracy. Many people have negative opinions about TranscribeMe for whatever their little hearts feel but I completely love this company. As long as you put real effort and have patience you two can make as much as I do per week. I was promoted after about two months to QA. After working on a project that many were struggling on, I was then promoted to Reviewer.

Is there constant work available?

There are times when you will get that awful message that reads “All work is currently assigned” but the longest I’ve ever seen it was a half of a day.

I will continue to update you all on TranscribeMe while it grows. 🙂
