sure - that's like 400 lph ~ 5000 lines per day
5000 a month
It is actually quite possible to do. I work for a small transcription business and one of our transcritionist averages $1900 to $2000 a week. She takes advantage of her ESP/shortcut program and makes templates for everything. So it can be done.
Parents just had them done at $5000 an eye. nm
Yea, and I do 5000 a day in a 6 hour day...
5000 lines per day VR?

Hi all.  Anyone think is it possible to edit 5000 lines per day of VR?  This is on a very low ESL account? 

The new company I have gone with have a 5000 daily line count requirement for editing VR files. Just curious if it is possible!  I am getting nervous!!


5000 lines a day?
Is that possible? I mean 1200 I thought was full time?
5000 lines per day???
Obviously this guy doesn't have a clue. Most nationals want between 1000 to 1200 lines minimum 65 character line with spaces.

Maybe he is talking about a 35 character line or better yet a 25 character line with spaces.

Check it out, maybe it's lucrative! LOL
2500/wk PT or 5000/wk FT
basically breaks down to 500 day PT, 1000 day FT.
2500/wk PT, 5000/wk FT
that's all my company requires. Plus we get tiered incentives for anything over 1000 per day.
Sounds like you might as well be FT with those #s-- at a previous job the min. for PT was 5000
lines every 2 weeks.  Granted it got to a point where there was no work so it was impossible to meet quota, but if there was work you had better meet it.....then we had a landslide of work, about 90% ESL.....all the good stuff apparently went up in smoke  (they outsourced to the Phillipines).
I average $5000 a month
I usually work 7 days a week. I work for a national full time and have a part time IC position. It's easy for me because I work from home anyway. Instead of lying around watching tv, I go to my computer and work.

Last year, I increased my savings by $24,000. I religiously deposit $2000 a month into savings. If you are willing to work, you can make lots of money. I can work as much as I want to with my IC position.
4000-5000 I can't believe I'm getting sucked into this again. SM

This is gross pay with two different places. It is not full time. Yes, I use expanders, no, I don't do the same two doctors every day.

Yes, I am very lucky. Yes, I am very fast. No, I am not lying, and I am sorry if you are not in as good a position as mine.

5000 mega enough for air card?
Is 5000 megabytes of data enough to use a wireless air card for MT work?  I only have dial up and am considering getting an air card but it says that you only get 5000 megabytes a month.  Is that enough for MT work, my husband gaming, and my kids being on the internet too?  Will I go over the 5000 megabyte limit?
5000 lines per day on job seeker's ...
You gotta be kidding, some say it was on before and required more than one person but why submit it as if it were a "job" offered to one? Perhaps I am "slow."
A company spends 3-5000 to hire....
...and train an employee. Doesn't matter if you're part-time or full-time. Is it responsible to make them incur that cost when you know you're going to bail?

Mmmmm, don't think so.
I make about $5000/month before taxes (sm)
I suppose I could work more, but...eh.  I only have to work 35 hours a week for full time.  I keep saying "this week I'll do 40," but there's more to life than work (at least I hope so). 

$24,000 in savings!  Rock on!  I hope to be there soon.
Amen! I do over 300 lph too. Have about 5000 abbreviations, been doing this for over 7 years,
and just because I do about 300 lph, give or take, doesn't my work is sloppy!! And to prove it, I just got a raise, which I take to mean I am doing a GOOD job!  As you, I proof as I go. 
thread is Who can transcribe 5000 lines/day (sm)
and it's about halfway down the page.

The poster used the name "See job ad by T. Olyphant!!"
(continued)...that's exactly what he meant, 5000 line a day.
Make sure that $5000 is in your hand before you start packing !! nm
Why is MTStars carrying an ad "Make $5000 a month FT". Who can do this?
The MTSOs have lowered the rate per line (by the way, what is a line now? what is a character now?) and given us just the cream of the crap to try to decipher, there's no way 1 person can produce $5000 worth of transcription in a month.  No way.
I only have 1 dinky account on my own, ~5000 lines a month - sm
and no tabs at all (I programmed in my "jumps" so I don't have to use tabs, just hit F11), and only 2 hard returns at most at the endd of each report. One Dr. just does "block" paragraphs and does all the patients in one "report", so each day is only a couple pages, the other does the same but with more of a report format, i.e. headers but no returns between each item; returns only between each patient. They then cut and paste into the patient's record. I am working on getting a few more doctors on my own so I can either lessen the work I do for my "regular" IC job or drop it all together; and I will, if necessary, charge for tabs and hard returns when I get more accounts though.
I checked into Qwest, but the fine print says if you use more than 5000 min per month, it will .. sm
be reviewed.  Their business rate is per line, and comes out to $500 monthly.  That's the problem with my current company. I figure I'll be using at least 10,000 mins per month.  Can't get Verizon here.  Any other suggestions?  TIA.
I've seen sooo many posts about this....Listen, the 5000 lines isn't a typo.
It's some type of project. If you search the board, you will see the posts and then maybe we won't have to keep top-posting it all over the place?
UNBELIEVABLE!!! I am speechless. I literally have no words! A $5000 trip to China to teach

them how to steal our jobs?



ATT- I was paying $320 for 7000 minutes, I am now paying $175 for 5000 minutes in CA. nm
