Please use the Contact Us form to send details of your interviews. For pricing, recording lengths are rounded to the nearest minute.

 * these prices refer to the standard format of ‘intelligent verbatim‘: texts don’t indicate non-lexical verbal sounds, stutters, filler words.  Repeated words and false start sentences can be edited out. Please ask for verbatim transcriptions if you require word-for-word transcriptions.

If you require time-stamping or certain criteria applied to your transcript, this will incur extra per minute costings.
