Why Such Low Prices?
It used to be slow and expensive. The transcription done by humans was priced at $1.25 per minute and had a turn-around time of 24 hours. It simply took too much time and effort to produce an accurate transcript used by humans.
We believe that we can do better than that. Just like Henry Ford was known from optimizing the workflows, using machines and building assembly lines to reduce workers fatigue, we believe that we should charge a bare minimum to let our customers save more money and spend them elsewhere. Low prices could go a long way in a gig economy. At the same time, we treat our own employees with greatest respect and pay them salaries double the industry average. This is the rule from day one and it is always a day one at GGLOT.
Where are we heading?
GGLOT is going to get big. We set an aim to become the busiest online transcription company on Planet Earth. To achieve that, we chose to translate an entire website (Thanks to ConveyThis) into multiple languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Chinese just to name a few. In addition, we chose to become a low cost, self-serving platform to enable people all of the world to extract benefits from affordable transcription service.
