At the core of what we do is our team of transcript editors.

At 3Play, we have thousands of U.S. based editors who work daily (and at all hours) to ensure the services we provide to you are accurate, timely, compliant, and up to standards.

Our transcript editors go through a rigorous certification process well before they touch a file. We provide constant support to ensure that our editors feel well equipped to tackle any job.

All editors come from very diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, which is very valuable to us as we get a lot of different types of content.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how happy are our editors working with 3Play?

On a scale of 1-10, our transcript editors rated their happiness an 8.5 out of 10.
We have editors who are teachers, students, engineers, actors, writers, YouTube stars, entrepreneurs, stay at home moms and dads, and even a sheepherder.

We’ve built a diverse, talented, and passionate community that works diligently to produce quality captions and audio description.

It takes more than just knowing how to write to be a good transcript editor. It takes hard work, practice, and dedication.

And at 3Play, we are proud to say we have the best of the bunch transcribing your videos every day.

How Do We Stack Up?

We are incredibly proud of the feedback we received, and especially happy with many of the common themes! The way we treat our editors has really stood out. We are fair, responsive, supportive, and clear with expectations and standards. One person pointed out, 3Play has “the best transparency of any company I’ve worked with.” Our editors are an incredibly important part of our company, and we strive to make that apparent to each and every one of them. Another editor noted, “I feel more involved with the company [than I have with others].”

Appreciation goes a long way, and fair pay can speak volumes when it comes to showing appreciation and respect for the work our editors put in. Our editors seem to agree, and think that we are doing a great job: “The pay is phenomenal and the upper management seems to know what they are doing more so than other companies.”

Our transcript editors love the flexibility

Our editors are contract-based, meaning they have the freedom to choose how many hours they work, when they work, and what content they want to work with. Many of our editors do this as a way to make extra money or when they have spare time.

That’s why flexibility is an important aspect of the job.
