Since we leverage the best of both worlds using machine technology and professional editors, our transcriptionists never have to start from scratch. Every video and audio file on the 3Play marketplace comes with a time-coded, automatically generated transcript, allowing editors to fully focus on editing for accuracy.

Editors can also customize 3Play’s easy-to-use platform, with personalized settings and shortcuts that make it easier to find the functions and projects they use most often. We’re always improving, so new features are frequently being added, based on real user feedback.

Unmatched video and audio file quality

Thankfully, 3Play works with some of the biggest content creators in the world – like professional sports networks, major media & entertainment providers, and higher educational institutions – our marketplace is chock-full of files in tip-top shape.

I find that I actually enjoy many of the files that I edit. I have learned some really fascinating things just by editing a college lecture or an oral history interview.

With over 10,000 customers across industries – including prominent universities, mainstream media networks, and large professional enterprises – the marketplace is constantly changing. 3Play transcriptionists get to choose which files they work on, giving each editor the chance to branch out and try something new or stick with a more familiar area of expertise.

Unlock new job types as you improve

At 3Play, there’s always room for growth – and we love to promote from within! Over time, there are other tasks and opportunities that become available to contractors as they improve their skills and complete bilingual transcription jobs, including:

  • Quality Assurance Specialists: review transcripts, ensuring that customer instructions are followed before sending the final result to customers.
  • Auditors: provide direct feedback on editors’ work, anonymously reviewing randomly selected transcript portions to ensure equal assessment.
  • Audio Describers: write descriptions of key onscreen visuals and text that aid or affect a viewer’s understanding of a video.

Reaching a global audience through translation

Many 3Play customers are aiming to reach international audiences – and reasonably so, considering more than 80% of YouTube traffic comes from outside the United States. With technology bridging the gap between countries and cultures, video translation and subtitles provide content creators with the ability to adapt and reach a global audience.

Above all else, 3Play’s mission is to make content accessible to everyone, everywhere. We know that the impact of accessibility is universal, and as a transcriptionist, you would be directly contributing to creating a better viewing experience for all users.
