Welcome to Kathleen's Transcription Services web page!
I am Kathleen Rasmussen, owner of Kathleen's Transcription Services.
that I treat the service I provide as a very important ministry, and provide
top-notch accuracy, timeliness,
trustworthiness, and reliability.
Currently, I will transcribe digital files (mp3, wav, dss,
etc.)CD's, DVD'S and Audiocassette Tapes to help Pastors and Bible
teachers convert their sermons into text form, and also for born again
Christians to convert their
or even Christian book projects into text as well.
have on occasion accepted jobs that were only business in nature and not
necessarily from a christian organization, but I do reserve the right to
screen everything that is submitted for transcription in order to accept
or reject the job.
Also, I only transcribe "as is" with no editing for
readability. With the transcribing of sermons or teachings "as is," I do
make corrections along the way with spelling, punctuation, language, paragraphs and
sometimes wording if needed, so you still will have a very nice finished copy.
Clients will be responsible for the editing portion of the transcriptions I do
for them, if they feel they still need or want that after reading over what I've
done for them.
I am finished with transcribing your audiocassette tape(s), CD, DVD, or digital files
finished work can be sent to you in an attachment via email in Microsoft Word
format (.doc) for your inspection.
If you prefer to have the finished copy in print sent to
you by regular mail, there will be a $5.00 S&H fee to send back your
which includes postage and the materials used.
Or, if you send me tapes that do not need to be returned
and I send you the finished work in email, then there will be no S&H fees
incurred. Please note: If your tapes need to be sent back, $5.00 S&H
fee will be included in your final invoice for the transcription.
If you have a series of sermon and/or teaching tapes that
you would like sent back, I will only charge you the total postage due plus
$1.00 more for the
After you have received your transcribed sermon(s) or
teaching tape(s) either via email or regular mail, and
if you are pleased with the work done, the
agreed upon transcription fee will be due within 15 days. Hopefully there
will be no payment due past the 15-day period, and if so, late payment charges
will be applied as well.
Charging my clients a flat transcription rate of $1.50 for each
recorded minute of audio helps you to not be charged by page count, work hours,
etc. Also, by publishing my transcription rates there are no surprises
when you get your bill.
Sermon and teaching tapes or CD/DVD's should be sent to:
