Transcription Services

We offer transcription services of audio/visual files in foreign languages as well as English.

 

Much of our work is for the legal, media and medical sectors which gives us a broad overview of transcription services. This experience gives us the skills and know-how to ensure we get you the best possible transcriptions in terms of quality, costs and time.

 

What is Transcription?

 

Transcription: this is where what is said in the foreign language is written down in the foreign language. So if it is spoken in Russian, we have the linguist write down word for word what was said in Russian text.

 

After the foreign transcription we can then if required translate the file for you matching it against the original text and timecodes.

Transcription & Translation

 

To maintain our high standards of accuracy in audio and video translation we ensure the original work is transcribed by a speaker native to the language. Once this is complete then we are able to translate this into over 200+ languages ensuring your media is ready for a multilingual audience. It is often noted that using the two-stage process of translating the transcribed content is much more accurate than ‘direct translation’ from an audio or video source.

What formats can be used with the transcription service?

 

We can work with any of the following:
– wav transcription
– interview transcription
– mp3 transcription
– conference transcription
– CD transcription
– focus group transcription
– DVD transcription
– Windows Media Player transcription
– RealPlayer transcription

 

How do transcription services work?

 

We charge on an hourly basis. The amount of time an assignment will take depends upon the length of the audio/visual material, the quality of sound, how quickly people speak, what the topic of conversation is and in what format the translation or transcription is required.

 

On average such transcription work can take anywhere from 8 to 12 times as long as the source material; so 1 hour can take up to 12 (or more) to complete.

 

All we need to start the transcription service is the actual source material.
