Some price quotes by transcription type are released! Introducing the advantages and disadvantages of each
Aug. 2, 2021
When requesting transcription, what is worrisome is the price when outsourcing.
In fact, the price of transcription varies greatly depending on the method and type of request .
Make sure you know what kind of transcription you are looking for, and ask for a good job.
Types of transcription requests
There are roughly three types of transcription request methods.
- Automatic transcription by AI (site / company)
- Ask an individual (outsourcing)
- Transcription by human power of the company
The prices of these three transcription methods are quite different.
Also, some companies offer rates in characters rather than hours.
However, in many cases it is fixed on an hourly basis.
Transcription outsourcing rate
Automatic transcription by AI (site / company): 2.5 yen to 30 yen / minute <br /> Request to an individual (outsourcing): 6 yen to 200 yen / minute <br /> Transcription by human power of the company: 108 Yen ~ 800 Yen / min
By the way, if you request a transcription for 2 hours, the following charges are the market price.
We will introduce the features, advantages and disadvantages of each in detail.
Automatic transcription by AI (site / company): 2.5 yen to 30 yen / minute
Recently, a service that can automatically transcribe with AI has appeared.
Since automatic transcription by AI can be easily transcribed on the site without human intervention,
- Delivery time is approaching
- I want to transcribe immediately
- I want to order work cheaply due to division of labor
- Tired of interacting with outsourcing
Recommended for those who say.
Benefits of AI transcription
The advantage is the low price.
The unit price is quite low because you can transcribe without human intervention. At the lowest price, you can transcribe for 2.5 yen per minute.
Even a two-hour transcription costs only 300 yen .
The accuracy is also better than I expected. The recent evolution of IT is rapid!
Many sites can be used for free for a few minutes, so it is recommended that you try out how much transcription you can do.
Disadvantages of AI transcription
The disadvantage is that the voice you hear becomes the text as it is because it is automatically transcribed by AI.
Specifically, words that have no particular meaning, such as "er," "er," and "um," may be transcribed as they are.
It may be difficult to read if it is written.
In addition, since the machine transcribes, if there is a lot of noise, the accuracy of transcription may deteriorate or kanji errors may occur.
Ask an individual (outsourcing): 6 yen to 200 yen / minute
Outsourcing sites such as CrowdWorks and Lancers make it easy for anyone to find someone to do their job.
When requesting by outsourcing, the price is
- Contents to apply
- Those who have applied
It depends greatly on.
Benefits of transcription in outsourcing
The advantage of transcription in outsourcing is
- You can request cheaply even by human-powered transcription
- If you meet a good person, you can continue to request
That is the point.
Transcription by human power tends to be expensive, but you can request it cheaply by outsourcing to an individual.
Depending on the content of the project, many people can apply for about 5,000 yen for transcription for about 2 hours.
If you are a fledgling beginner, there is a trial price, and it seems that you can request it at a surprisingly low price.
If you meet a good person, you will be able to continuously request work.
Disadvantages of transcription in outsourcing
In outsourcing, the quality of the people who work varies, so
- Whether it ’s cheap or bad,
- Do you choose a good quality person because the unit price can be high?
It will be either.
Even though the other party is an individual who mediates an outsourcing site, the cheaper the unit price, the more
- Delivery date is not met
- There is a risk of communication interruption
- Confidentiality is neglected
- I was abandoned on the way
So think carefully about what your priorities are for you.
In some cases, it was better not to outsource, and it was cheaper and faster to ask AI transcription or a company because it is necessary to identify the person to hire and the job may be abandoned on the way. ..
[Outsourcing results at CrowdWorks]
We are looking for "transcription of video and audio".
There were 8 applicants in 3 days.
・ No communication after application ➡️ 1 person ・ No communication after sending details ➡️ 5 people ・ Delivery completed Continuation contract ➡️ 2 people
It was around this time that I thought it was natural for me to lose communication.
I want to take good care of those who continue

Transcription by human power of the company: 108 yen to 800 yen / minute
When you search on the Internet, the transcription of human power by the company often appears in the search results.
It is stable but expensive because it is transcribed manually.
Some companies have a minimum charge for ordering.
Benefits of transcription by human power of the company
After all, there is a sense of security.
The exchange is smooth, and the delivery time is exactly as ordered.
The company's track record and various options are attractive.
Disadvantages of transcription by human power of the company
The disadvantage is that the cost is inevitably high.
For example, with 2 hours of transcription
- Company A 6 days (about 8 business days): 26,400 yen
- Company B 5 days (about 7 business days): 12,936 yen
- Company C 4 business days: 39,800 yen
We are offering the price.
In addition, it may be necessary to make an estimate in advance, which may take an extra number of days.
Types of transcription by companies
Finally, I would like to introduce the types of orders placed when transcribing by a company.
In the case of transcription by a company
The charge varies depending on the format of transcription.
In many cases, the price for "fluff removal" is displayed.
Some companies also undertake transcription for professional use, such as transcription and court use.
- How many days do you want the delivery date?
- Which vendor to ask
Prices vary greatly.
The shorter the delivery time, the higher the price.
Raising: 240 yen to 700 yen per minute
Transcription is a method of accurately transcribing the content of a voice, word for word, as it is heard.
Even if there are meaningless words or mistakes such as "er" or "ah", they are all transcribed as they are. Since the number of characters is larger and it takes more time than removing fluff, it tends to be more expensive to wake up.
For counseling, research, court evidence, conversation analysis, etc.
"Well, if it was the weather forecast for yesterday night, today's weather was a sunny forecast, but the forecast changed this morning. Well, surely, there is a trough today. The weather is like a downhill. "
Fluff removal: 108 yen to 700 yen per minute
Fluff removal removes "ah", "er", "ah", "~ ne", "~ yo", etc., which have no meaning in context, and makes the text easier to read.
For interviews, roundtable discussions, symposiums, conferences, etc.
"If it was yesterday's weather forecast, today's weather was sunny, but this morning the forecast changed. Certainly, today's weather seems to be downhill because of the trough."
Sentence: 240 yen to 1000 yen per minute
Sentence is a method of converting spoken language into written language and adjusting the writing style.
We also perform the words without words and the supplement of particles.
This method is often used when readability is important, such as printed matter such as newsletters and browsing materials.
"In yesterday's weather forecast, today's weather was sunny, but this morning the forecast changed. Certainly, there seems to be a trough, and today's weather is going downhill."
