How Jamaicans make money from REV Freelancers Transcribing, Captioning and Translating Audio and Video

Some Jamaicans have all the luck, as this online work opportunity is for you. Turns out that our love for audio and video can be put to good use to make money online!

There is a website called Rev Freelancers that allows Internationals including Jamaican, to make money by Transcribing, Captioning and Translating Audio and Video.

As usual you’ll need the following tools:

  1. Paypal Account (Deer, 2015, September 9) as your main Payment Gateway
  2. Payoneer Account (Deer, 2015, September 10), an Bank of America Prepaid Debit Card
  3. Scotia VISA Debit (Deer, 2012, February 13) or CIBC First Caribbean VISA Debit Card
  4. Broadband Internet at home from FLOW or Digicel Play (Deer, 2016, June 28)
  5. Notebook or Journal to keep Track of all your Online Accounts and Passwords
  6. Portfolio of Published Written Work on a blog or Website online i.e. Blogs, e-books
  7. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) Connection
  8. A Friend or relative living abroad

You’ll need the Paypal Account (Deer, 2015, September 9) to be able to receive payments from

Credit Card purchases (Deer, 2013, September 16) and the Payoneer Account (Deer, 2015, September 10) are needed to be able to spend locally. The Scotia VISA Debit Card (Deer, 2012, February 13) or CIBC First Caribbean VISA Debit Card is just to verify your Paypal Account.

Broadband Internet at home from FLOW or Digicel Play (Deer, 2016, June 28) and a friend or relative abroad with a US address is also great to have as they can get you a US Paypal Account with a Card (Deer, 2017, March 26) that’ll make withdrawals a lot easier.

You can easily use your ShipMe (Deer, 2013, September 15) address to sign up and a free VPN on smartphones and now Desktop computers (Deer, 2016, September 20) thanks to the Opera Browser.

So how does Rev Freelancers work?

How to use Rev Freelancers – Get jobs Transcribing, Captioning and Translating Audio and Video

Basically Rev Freelancers is a lot like Fiverr or any other freelancer website (Deer, 2017, September 18) but with a focus on audio and video tasks only.

Transcribing is basically listening to audio and writing verbatim what was said. Captioning is just the same thing, but involves adding text to video, similar to those seen on YouTube. Translating is probably the biggest paying gig on this site, as it involves doing the Transcribing and Captioning but in another language.

French or Spanish are preferred, proving that you know that language (Deer, 2016, September 10) as you work to make more money in our increasingly globalised world. You sign up to the website, which gives you a chance to get jobs Transcribing, Captioning and Translating Audio and Video.

You then go through the application process, which involves answering a simple but lengthily questionnaire. Then finally when you are a confirmed member, you will be brought up to speed via a series of tutorial videos on how to transcribe Transcribing, Captioning and Translating Audio and Video.

Then the rest is history as explained in this video above. Depending on how well you do on the questionnaire as well as on the Transcription test, you will get the job.

As you may notice, you get paid every Monday to your Paypal Account and the pay is dependent on how much work you do. Paypal allows you to request a check once you reach US$200.

Tip: Make sure before you take the test you are fully alert and sober; a cup of coffee might be a good option as well.

Sharing is caring so share this with your friends online.

  1. This article is fairly out of date now. You should update it. For example: you don’t need to earn $200 before you can withdraw your money (it’s $10). Also, spelling mistake: … but lengthily questionnaire” should be “…but LENGTHY questionnaire”. What’s that nonsense about requiring a VPN to sign up? That is completely false. You can work for Rev from anywhere in the world. They don’t care what your public IP address is, so why would you use a VPN? You don’t even explain that in the article. I get that you are trying to get a referral commission by posting a VPN link on your page, but please don’t LIE to your readers by saying that they need it for an online job when this is 100% false. Super sneaky.
