We are constantly asked by our clients how we can charge up to 80% less than our competition for transcription services and still be in business. Below is the simple explanation:

First of all, we run a tight ship. We choose our promotions carefully and insure every advertising dollar pays for itself; we streamline our systems and billing processes; we also do not waste money on unnecessary things like fancy offices in ritzy buildings, expensive furniture, etc.

Secondly, we are straight-shooters. There are no tricks in what we do, just good, old-fashioned, reliable business principles. Quite often we are asked if we bait our customers with low-rates advertisement and then try to sell higher packages. Anyone who expects us to do that will be disappointed. Our prices are listed right on the website. There are no surprises.

Thirdly, we are looking for a long-term relationship and referrals from satisfied clients like you will be, so we do not need to gouge you like our competitors because they consider you a "one-time" client and intend to extort as much as they can get from you.

The end result is that we are a small but profitable company with a large number of satisfied clients, expects to be in business for many years to come. All of this, of course, is due to value-conscious customers like you. Please click on the below link to view our customer testimonials.

Translation FAQs

Most of our Spanish translators are located in US. We do use some translators located in South American countries like Argentina, Colombia, Mexico etc.We specially use them if translation requires dialects of these countries.

Unlike other companies, GMRT publishes the fee for all of our services. Please click here to see the fee rates.

Unless asked upfront, we use the "American" dialect of Spanish. It is the language that you hear on TV or print. We do have Spanish translators in other countries and do accommodate specific requests for translation to be used in another Spanish speaking country.

Free tools are good for getting the gist of the content translated. It will never be of broadcast, publish or print quality.

Most of the translation companies, including GMRT, use freelancers. The difference is that a good translation company like GMRT has vetted the freelancers and also has quality control process. Translators working for GMRT go through the following process:

  • Pass rigorous translation test.
  • Sign confidentiality agreement that they will never discuss the content with anyone, and that they will destroy all materials within three days after the project is completed.
  • All work goes through our quality check before they are sent to our clients.
  • Translators are constantly evaluated for the quality of their work and timeliness of completing work. Anyone not meeting our quality standards and timeliness of project completion is removed from our panel.

Yes, GMRT provides translation services in almost all languages
