I will definitely hire this service again!
Thanks for the great transcribing which was >90% accurate and saved a lot of time.
However if the transcriber spent some extra time proof reading/hearing it, I'm sure it would easily more than 95%. I'm saying that because when I checked the work sent for me I found that there were some spelling mistakes, missing words (sometimes 2-3 consecutive words), and some easy words that were considered as inaudible (I know that some words/terms are not familiar, but some were really easy). Since I'm planning to send other twenty something interviews for transcribing, I would be really grateful if you can take these comments into account when doing them.
Very fast, I will use again.
This website is very helpful and simple to use. Makes it easier for businesses that have to translate documents for customers to function.
Fast turnaround, no-hassle, easy to use platform. Overall very good experience. General accuracy could be improved a bit for non-verbatim transcripts.
I liked how there were notes by some of the names where spelling was unknown. I was very pleased with the accuracy of rev.com, however, there were a few minor misspellings.
I've used Rev (formerly Fox Translate) three times. Each time, I'm left thinking I will use them again. I would recommend them to another person for simple translations. For a more complex or "important" translation - I'd probably give them a shot using a sample, and see how they did. But they've done well enough to at least earn a shot at any of my future translation work, given their price, timeliness, and results.
* I had to get a health check translated and it looked a little bit tricky in terms of layout - lots of boxes and some images. Rev did a good job of reproducing the 'look' of the document. One minor issue - it went one page + 1 sentence on the next page. Would've been nice to have it all one one page, but I realize it's hard to translate from Korean to English and keep the length the same.
* Near the end of the doc, there were a couple of sentences that were a little bit off:
"Even of the physical result shows "normal" we recommend that you continue ...
(Should be "Even if..") - simple typo.
"If there is a physician's recommendation that requires a rest then you may use that as a medical treatment request in order to receive necessary test(s) from a higher level hospital."
(Should be "requires rest" - no "a" / "higher level hospital" is a bit awkward - I don't know the best way to put it - larger? Not sure)
The rest of the document looked good. Not sure if this nit-picky or I should expect more?
In either case, I will use Rev again in the future.
Rev continues to deliver. Their iOS App is a killer. Easy to use. Seamless from recording through transcription order. And deliver they do!
Happy with the final result. The transcription was quite good even though many of the spekers had strong acents. However, when it was a clear speaker with no accent, it still was about 5-8% inaccurate (even on clear words). I understand this level on heavy accents, but on clear accents it seemed a little high.
The turnaround time for the transcription was less than 12 hours for about 40 minutes of audio. Only negative is that upload failed numerous times before successfully uploading the files. I would definitely use this service again.
I used Rev.com recently to transcribe a telephone interview (I'm a journalist) and was delighted not only at the reasonable cost but at the incredibly quick turnaround (a matter of hours) for the job. Perhaps not surprisingly, the accuracy suffered somewhat with the speed, though it was better than other services I've used. My best results have been with services who use native English speakers (which I understand Rev.com usually does) and which double-check completed transcriptions - my guess is that this second step did not occur, resulting in phonetic errors. This is certainly acceptable given the quick turnaround, but it would be nice to have the option, ie "is it more important to receive your transcription quickly or to have it be more accurate?" Still, though, great, inexpensive and fast service. And I appreciate the fact that they actively solicit this feedback.

Excellent turn around time (less than 12 hours for me)!
Very well laid out output.
Some errors that I corrected after re-listening to the tapes.

Hossine OULD A.
I needed to get my French diploma translated into English.
The process was very simple and I am quite happy with the results.
I received my report as promised within 48 hours and the price was great for the 10 minute of audio that I needed transcribed. The only downfall was that it was less than 98% accurate as I did have another person transcribe it and they were much more accurate. I would say Rev transcribed it at 85% at the most. It was a difficult audio that had background noise though. Overall, I would use them again in the future for projects that didn't need a rush and could wait the 48 hour turn around. I would also suggest that Rev not take difficult files or suggests people to not submit files that have difficult audio so their expectation are not hanging around the 98% advertisement that Rev posts.
They have very fast turn around time, I submitted my documents on Friday and have them completed by early Monday morning (they do not work weekends).
I downloaded my documents for a very easy quote. The only issue I had was, I had 2 documents to translate, both were half pages with 1 being double sided. I was charged as if there were 3 documents, they have a 250 word rule but, that document was only a few words overs and the 1st one didn't even have 250 words.
All in all I am happy with the work they did and we needed the translation quickly.

When Rev.com translated my wife's birth certificate into English from Spanish, they gave us the translation within 24 hours. However, in one line part of my wife's name was misspelled. When she noticed the error, I sent a note to Rev.com and the next day we received the corrected version.
Good service I would use them again
REV was pretty awesome. They turned around our transcripts in 24-28 hours. The transcriptist made great notes on difficult parts of the audio and the format was easy to read.

I received my translated documents with 24 hours. Very impressive!
It is wonderful but has to be double checked for misunderstandings
They are minimal compared to the accomplishment of bringing it all to paper
