The DRB transcription services are for the benefit of Bible teachers, ministers and believers who have a significant message to share, but feel they do not have the time to personally develop it into a book. If you have presented a teaching in an organized way that covers your major points, and if you have recorded that teaching, our transcriber can type your message into a Word document and move you much closer to the vision of publishing a book.
What type of media does DRB receive for transcription services?
We can use recordings saved on a CD (audio), DVD (video & audio), Flash Drive, MP3, MP4, or DSS file. IMPORTANT: do not send your only original recorded copy.
DRB transcription services and publishing services are two different things.
If we transcribe your message, that does not automatically mean that we will publish it in book form. After the transcription service has been completed, the manuscript will be sent back to you for your review. After you have read the transcription and approved it (having made any necessary corrections: typographical, punctuation or spelling errors), you can then submit it to our DRB acquisition team for assessment. If we approve it to be published through our company, then we will draw up a cost estimate for you.
How much does DRB charge for transcription?
To begin the transcription service, we charge an initial binder of $100. This allows the specialist to get started on your project. Your transcriber will then type the first 1,000 words, enabling him/her to determine the probable word count of the entire message and the quality of the recording. At that point, DRB will send you an estimate for the projected cost of the entire project.
Our charge for good recordings is $25 per 1,000 words transcribed. If the recording is not clear (problems such as: poor volume, background noise, a muffled sound and indistinguishable words, etc.) then there may be an additional charge. Once you receive this quote, you will need to pay what remains of 50% of the total estimated cost. At the completion of the transcription, the remaining balance will be due. It may be slightly less or more than the original estimate, because we will only be able to compute the exact word count once the transcriber completes his/her work. We charge by the word, not by the time the transcriber spends on the project.
