Hi transcribewiz, I would like to enquire about your transcribing service.
I am working on my PhD research and i'm looking for transcribing service for my interview data. It is one on one interview between me and my student participants. Most of the interview was conducted in English with some Malay language mixed in. Some interviews was in Malay language. Both me and the students are Malaysians so we have malaysian accent. in total there are 54 interview sessions, and the total time is about 15 hours so i'm looking for rates that are affordable to me as a student with limited financial resources. The transcription is to be done in English. i would like to get the transcription in a month or two's time, so maybe mid January.
1. Can you tell me whether you can translate/ transcribe from Malay to English?
2. You mentioned your rate is USD$15 per hour. For every hour of interview data (1 on 1, conversational pace), how many hours you need to transcribe? The reason i asked is because my budget is really limited, and so i need to know whether i can afford your service.
