Tigerfish Transcription

Posted by Jessica Holbrook | Posted in Transcription


IMPORTANT NOTE: Applications and inquires are accepted via email only. NO CALLS, please. Our reception staff cannot answer questions about your application. Applications are reviewed on a periodic basis, and successful candidates will be contacted directly. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications we receive, you may not receive an immediate response to your application.

If you are a quick typist with a good ear for language and a strong sense of written English, transcribing for Tigerfish can be a way to earn money while working at home (or on the road) with a flexible schedule. Tigerfish has been in business since 1989. While we demand the highest quality of work from our transcribers, we are known for friendliness and flexibility concerning their needs. Many transcribers have been with us for more than a decade. These include stay-at-home parents, artists and writers pursuing creative projects, and people working from abroad as they travel.

Transcription is the rendering of recorded speech into written form. Our clients produce a wide variety of materials, from single subject interviews to focus groups, documentary film footage to corporate research projects, police interrogations to depositions. Different styles and levels of interpretation are called for: absolute verbatim, editing for clarity, or occasionally having to paraphrase specified sections. One thing we have found to be indispensable in a successful transcriber is the ability to write well. Spoken language often takes forms that are subject to a wide degree of grammatical and syntactical interpretation. It is the job of the transcriber to listen for meaning and make intelligent decisions on the best way to render the spoken word in written form.

In order to transcribe for Tigerfish, you must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident. You will need high-speed Internet access (no dial-up), a telephone number where you regularly can be reached, a Windows-based computer (Macs unfortunately are not compatible with the video timecoding software we use), and a copy of Express Scribe transcription software, a free program you can download here. Express Scribe is fine to use for the test and evaluation period, but ultimately if you continue to transcribe with Tigerfish, you will need to purchase a copy of Start Stop’s Power Play for Windows Media.
