With all that you have to get done, it’s okay to ask for help.
As a journalist/writer, when you have a project that has been assigned, there are so many steps to get through to be able to develop the perfect piece, the perfect end-product, that it’s a wonder you have enough time in the day to even think about them all.
There are phone calls to make. Interviews to set up and then to hold. Outlines to write, and even the final article/chapter/paper to complete. Possibly even photos to choose. Editors to deal with. The list goes on and on. All the while, juggling the business of life that is always there, and quite frankly more important that any article, book, paper you will ever write – your family.
So when you can, it’s nice to know it’s okay to ask for help. Help that will give you that hour, hours, or even days to handle the other aspects of your project and the important parts of your life. And when you can find that help, and it’s within your budget, that is all the more reason to consider asking for it.
CLK Transcription understands the needs of the journalist. We understand their deadlines and we understand their budgets. We have been fortunate to be able to assist many with their audio/video transcription and we have grown to understand that their audio is a valuable tool in their work, but that the transcription of it is time-consuming and cumbersome for them to handle on their own. It, quite frankly, can interfere with the completing the project itself and absolutely interrupts the family time they could have if they just didn’t have to do it themselves.
The good news is THEY DONT!
CLK Transcription can handle their audio/visual transcription and develop a quality document, recording the entire interview and return it to them in most cases within 24 hours or less. Now they can get on with the project and get on with their enjoyment of a little bit of family time. We even transcribe voice mail. Yes, many can get that service for free, but are the messages usable, understandable, or delivered timely? If it’s free, do you get what you pay for?
We are able to work with any downloadable audio, and yes, we work with cassettes, DVDs and CDs. We even convert white paper to an electronic document. And if you have an audio you want to transcribe yourself, but just need it converted to a different medium – we can do that too! We even offer an FTP site for those who need the transferability of their files to others. All at a cost that fits within your budget.
So, when you have a project and you need a little or a lot of help with the transcription, why not find out how we can assist you with that? You may just find the time and money you have been looking for.
We are an email away from starting your project today and having it back to you tomorrow. We are US owned and operated and never send anything off shore. We offer a confidentiality agreement to every client. We never use speech recognition, and every project is proofread before delivery.
Additional discounts are available for any educational project, doctoral, IEPs, etc.
