Work in the comfort of your own home

Legal transcription work has never been easier with the advent of remote job options and interconnectivity. Our online transcriptionists enjoy several advantages, including scheduling flexibility, minimal equipment requirements, fair, above-average compensation compared to industry standards, and much, much more. 

Why legal transcription work is important

Whether inside or outside a courtroom, most legal proceedings are recorded with high-quality audio and video equipment, including but not limited to digital and tape files. In some cases, a court reporter or stenographer can provide written verbatim records of what the parties say and do live and in person. But, a transcriptionist can get the job done far faster than a court reporter.

Regardless of the method used to capture legal conversations, most require transcribing into the correct file formats so others can also read the transcripts. Legal transcripts play a vital role in the flow of information and the legal process. Attorneys and legal teams rely on legal transcriptions to plan cases and construct winning legal strategies. They are also used to review past cases and witness testimony from other trials. Accurate legal transcription is paramount, as incorrect documents can carry heavy consequences. 

Work remotely for Ditto Transcripts and see the difference

Here at Ditto, we offer remote legal transcription jobs for U.S.-based transcriptionists. Transcriptionists are expected to follow style guides, maintain 99% accuracy in all transcription jobs, perform preliminary QA, and see projects through to completion. You must also be able to reach at least 65 wpm or more to ensure fast turnaround times. 

We like ambitious, detail-oriented people with a passion for learning and a tight focus on high service quality and excellence. We’re always looking for skilled, committed, and experienced professional transcriptionists, and we offer work-from-home freelance transcription jobs with opportunities to grow in our 100% U.S.-based business.

Legal transcriptionists primarily create written records of important legal recordings. They are expected to perform a wide variety of tasks, including: 

  • Preparing transcripts and templates of legal documents
  • Transcribing audio and video recordings
  • Conducting legal research depending on terminology requirements
  • Timecoding transcripts
  • Editing and proofreading to maintain high-quality work
  • And other various legal word processing requirements

Due to the sensitive nature of legal transcription work, strict security and confidentiality requirements must be followed. Our transcribers are required to sign NDAs and must undergo comprehensive background and criminal background checks. 

How much do legal transcriptionists make?

Our online legal transcriptionists get paid $0.80 to $1.10 per minute of audio, with the actual pay differing based on the person’s experience, turnaround time, shift, and audio difficulty. There are instances where our transcriptionists are paid higher because of the short turnaround time required or the complexity of research involved in producing a 99% accurate transcript. In fact, we’ve paid as much as $5.00/minute for court hearings transcripts needed overnight. Depending on work volume, you are looking at significant earnings for working online with Ditto. 

We assure you that you will be paid fairly and above our competitors. We want the best people working with us and our clients, and we believe offering higher-than-standard compensation is the best way to attract and keep top talent.
