Perks of Being a 3Play Transcriptionist
Updated: April 29, 2021
3Play transcriptionists are the best transcribers in the world (just ask our customers!).
Working as a 3Play transcriptionist has many perks. Many of our editors tell us they love working with 3Play because they love working from home, learning from the videos they edit, and having the freedom of setting their own hours.
There are many perks to working as a 3Play transcriptionist. Read on to uncover the benefits.
Work from Home as a Transcriptionist
One of the best perks of working as a 3Play transcriptionist is you get to work right from the comfort of your home. Whether you choose to work from your couch, bed, or cozy home office, all you really need is a strong WiFi connection and a computer.
Many of our transcriptionists are stay-at-home parents, caretakers, or entrepreneurs and working at 3Play gives them the flexibility to earn extra cash while focusing on what matters most to them.
Working as a transcriptionist also accommodates a nomadic lifestyle. As one of our contractors Jeremy notes, “I am very thankful that no matter where I go, I always have work as long as there is internet access.”
If you are looking for a work from home side hustle, then 3Play may be the perfect gig for you.
Set Your Own Schedule
Unlike a regular 9-5 job, the 3Play marketplace is open 24/7, which gives you the liberty to decide when you want to work (and for how long).
3Play transcriptionists have full control of their schedule. There are no minimums to meet – instead, you set your own flexible schedule. As Daniel a 3Play transcriber notes, “3Play is perfect because I am able to work when I can, and cut back when I can’t.”
Many of our transcriptionists have irregular schedules, so being able to work weekends or nights fits well with their lifestyles.
Get a Weekly Paycheck
As a 3Play transcriptionist, you receive a paycheck on a weekly basis. Every paycheck will reflect your work for the week, which means you can keep track of your earning goals.
A weekly paycheck also gives you more flexibility in your budgeting. If you work other jobs that pay on a biweekly or monthly basis, you can always count on your transcription paycheck to help meet urgent financial needs.
Or, if you need extra income for impromptu purchases, your weekly paycheck can help contribute. Bridget, a 3Play transcriptionist, notes, “I am really excited that I will have more money for Christmas presents this year.”
Furthermore, we are committed to providing our transcribers with fair wages. Humans are a necessity for creating high quality captioning, so we believe strongly that we should treat those humans ethically and pay them fairly.
Always Be Learning
The 3Play marketplace is full of videos and audio content from a wide range of topics. We serve over 5,000 customers across multiple industries, which means you’ll find videos from prominent universities to big media networks to large enterprises.
Many of our transcriptionists note that one of their favorite parts of the job is the wide variety of topics they get to transcribe. The marketplace is constantly changing, which means you can learn something new every day. Magan notes, “If I had the ability to do anything in the world, it would just be to go to school for the rest of my life and learn new things and never work. This is as close as I can get to that.”
As a 3Play transcriptionist, you get to choose which files you want to work on. You can decide to stay within your area of expertise or branch out to new and unfamiliar territories.
At 3Play, you choose your next adventure.

3Play’s mission is to make web video widely accessible. We believe that accessibility matters and that the impact of accessibility is universal. As a transcriptionist, you are directly contributing to the accessibility of millions of videos for the deaf and hard of hearing communities across the world.
