Do you have handwriting, images, PDF files or even books you'd like typed as Word documents? 1-888-TYPE-IT-UP's text-to-text transcription services can help. Not only do we offer a highly sought-after audio transcription service but we also produce quality-controlled, near-flawless text-to-text transcripts on a daily basis.

Text-to-text transcription is most helpful for businesses who need faxes transcribed as well as authors, students, companies and individuals who need handwriting, images, PDF files and books typed as Word documents. By producing Word documents of these materials, we make it possible for you to have editable versions of your documents that you can manipulate.

The most popular forms of text-to-text transcription are handwriting transcription and PDF transcription. We can convert almost any handwritten or typewritten document into a clean, presentable Word document you can edit, publish, archive and/or distribute. And if you're concerned that your handwriting is illegible, you'll be relieved to know we have years of experience turning "chicken scratch" into text that anyone can read and enjoy. Our text-to-text transcriptionists have transcribed a wide range of handwriting, making us accustomed to the individual nuances of the handwritten form. 

If you're interested in our text-to-text transcription services, you'll be happy to know that we make it as simple as possible for you. You can submit your documents to us via most any method -- email, secure upload, fax or regular mail -- and we'll get started right away upon receipt. Our rates are simple, straightforward and easy to understand too, with your cost depending on your turnaround time and your number of pages submitted for transcription. Below you'll find more information on our text-to-text transcription services along with multiple turnaround options from which to choose.

If you only have hard copies, you may mail the sample via FedEx, UPS or USPS, but we recommend scanning a few pages to expedite the quoting process. If you don’t have access to a scanner, we recommend photographing a few pages with a smartphone.

Text-to-text transcription rates are per page of text you provide so you know your cost up front.

A page must consist of 350 words or less. If a page has more than 350 words, we will bill it as more than one page.

Is there a minimum charge?

We are more than happy to transcribe your project, no matter how small or large it may be. For text-to-text transcription services, our accounting system bills in five-page increments with a minimum charge of 15 pages.

This accounts for the time required for any and all correspondence, assigning and uploading your documents to the transcriptionist, setting up the transcript document, transcribing the file, assigning the resulting transcript to a transcript editor, editing the file, invoicing the file and delivering the text-to-text transcript to you upon completion.
