When you become a SpeakWrite Translator, you will be given access to our platform which allows you to pick up a job and submit it back to our system. You set your own schedule and determine how much you want to work.
Most Translation jobs submitted to SpeakWrite are Law Enforcement recordings (interviews, statements, phone calls, etc.) which are either entirely in Spanish or a combination of English and Spanish. As a SpeakWrite Translator, you will transcribe the entire audio in its original source language, then translate that transcript into English.
You do not need to be a certified translator, we just require that you are fluent in both English and Spanish and accurately capture a verbatim transcript and translation of both.
Unlike SpeakWrite’s English-only transcription, our Spanish translation turnaround time takes into consideration the extra work required of both transcribing and translating an audio. Therefore, the expected turnaround for a Spanish job is longer than for an English-only transcription, giving you plenty of time to complete the work.
Our translators are paid $3 per audio minute. That means that for a 10 minute audio, you will be paid $30.
|Speaker Name||Verbatim||English Translation|
|Speaker 1||¿Cómo se llama?||What’s your name?|
|Speaker 2||Me llamo Daniel, pero también me dicen Danny.||My name is Daniel, but some also call me Danny.|
|Speaker 1||Okay Danny, so uhm ¿cómo estas hoy?||Ok Danny, so uhm how are you today?|
|Speaker 2||Estoy bien, gracias. ¿Y usted?||I’m good, thanks. And you?|
|Speaker 1||I’m good, un poco cansada.||I’m good, a little tired.|
