Babble Type Job Requirements
BabbleType is not a site that hires just anyone. You’re going to need some experience if you’d like to apply and get the job. On their website they say you need to be detail oriented, perform under pressure, and have great communication skills.
You’ll also need a four-year degree and experience in editing and proofreading. They don’t put a numerical value on experience, but I’d say at least three years.
Babble Type Application
To begin the application process, you’ll need to send a resume to the email they provide on their website. The resume should include any experience and examples of work if you have any.
If they’re interested, they’ll contact you with additional steps. I can’t find exact information on this, but most likely there will be some test that you’ll need to pass dealing with transcription and editing.
What’s The Job Like?
As an editor, you’ll be the final step in their transcription process. Someone has already transcribed the audio file; it’s your job to listen to the audio, transcribe it, and compare the two. It’s your job to find any errors that the previous transcriber has made.
Here’re some of the tasks you’ll be responsible for:
- Double checking all documents before they’re sent to the customer
- Making sure all the customer’s requirements and demands have been met
- Scoring the work of the previous transcriber
- Finding errors in the whole production process
As you can see, there’re various tasks you’ll be responsible for. To me, this is the most important position in the company. You’re the person who approves all the work delivered to Babble Type clients!
How Much Does Babble Type Pay?
From what I can see the pay is based on a per file edited basis, since files range in length and difficulty the pay differs. In the forums, most people holding an editing position say it works out to be around $12-$15 an hour. It all depends on what type of files you get and how fast you can edit them. But I’d say the $12-$15 estimate is pretty accurate.
Babble Type makes payments each week via PayPal. You’ll be hired as an independent contractor so you’ll be responsible to report the income and taxes if you make more than $600 with the company!
Babble Type Transcription Editing Schedule
Babble Type is a part time position. In the forums, most people say they work 15-20 hours a week, but there’s no requirement to how much you work. You can work at any time that you’d like.
Some jobs have strict deadlines that might require you to work at a certain time, but for the most part, you can fit this anywhere into your schedule.
Is Babble Type Editing Legit?
From what I can see Babble Type is completely legit. There’s a good amount of feedback in the forums about the position, and it’s mostly all positive. The rate seems to be higher than a lot of transcription sites, but I haven’t reviewed many editing positions.
I like that they pay weekly via PayPal, which is a huge plus. The big thing here is do you have enough experience to get accepted.
At this time BabbleType is accepting applications and hiring for this position. If you like transcription and editing, it’s worth taking the time to send a resume. Who knows, it could turn into a new part-time work at home job opportunity for you.
