Types of Transcription Services

If you are not sure what type of transcription services you need, check out the different types below.

Same-Language Transcriptions

The most common transcription needed by professionals is a same-language transcription. This involves listening to an audio or video recording and typing up the contents into text format.

Multi-Language Transcriptions

Sometimes, our clients also need a multi-language transcription. This is where the contents of a file are not transcribed into the original language, but into another one instead.

For example, a French audio file to be transcribed into English text format.

Double-Column Transcriptions

Double-column transcriptions involve transcribing content into its original language, after which they are then transcribed into a second language.

Subtitling Services

Subtitle translations are also quite commonly needed by our clients. This is where same or foreign transcripts are produced in a time-coded format. This is often used for the post-production of films.

Why Our Transcription Service?

Our transcription service is different from other transcription companies. We have worked to provide a solution that is not only better or faster but also provides you with more service. And most importantly it is tailored towards your needs, instead of being a generic offer.

With an unbeatable turnaround time, incredible customer service, and an offer that is tailored to your needs, our solution is the right fit for you.

Quick Turnaround Time

When you order our express translation services, and we can have transcriptions back to you within hours. The only thing you need to do is tell us about your project and needs when you request a quote.

We will let you know the details and get straight to work, as soon as you have given us the green light. All you need to do is sit back and relax and if you have any questions, you can ask your dedicated project manager.

Then, we’ll deliver within the needed turnaround time, no matter whether that is 48, 24 or 12 hours.

How Long Do Transcriptions Usually Take?

While the exact time varies from project to project, we can give you a general idea. As a very broad rule of thumb, many transcriptionists say it takes them around 3-4 hours per hour of audio. This is because they have to playback and rewind the audio to ensure accuracy and that they have not missed anything.

Despite, this we always have transcriptionists ready around the clock and can deliver within hours, unless of course, the audio file is many hours long.

Transparent & Affordable Per Minute Pricing

When you choose us, the first step is always to request a quote. Then, we’ll get back to you with a competitive quote within one hour.

This quote will have the exact cost of the project on it, so you know exactly how much it will cost. We also aren’t a company that charges sky-high prices, instead, we focus on providing affordable per-minute pricing for our transcription clients.

Client-Focused

We’re a client-focused transcription agency that has outstanding customer service. You have a dedicated project manager, and all of our services come with free revisions in the first 14 days.

Additionally, we know how annoying it can be when you only find generic transcription offers everywhere that don’t suit your needs. That’s why we have worked to provide a custom UK transcription service that is tailored towards your needs.

Native Human Transcriptionists

All of our transcription services are performed by natives. So your transcriptions will be accurate and most importantly flow well as they are written by a native. Plus, we even guarantee an accuracy rate of 99%.

What Industries Can You Transcribe Audio Files In?

We can transcribe audio files in almost every industry. However, we also have a range of UK transcription specialists that specialize in more complex industries to ensure the highest accuracy possible.

Some of these specialist industries include:

However, in general, our transcription services cover all industries. There may be a case where our transcriptions are not available for a certain industry, but that is very rare.

You can always request a quote and let us know a little bit about your needs to find out.

How Much Does The Service Cost?

As we haven’t listened to your file, we cannot give you an exact price. If you would like to know the exact price for our transcription services, just request a quote and we’ll be happy to provide you with one.

Our pricing is tailored towards your needs.

Some of the factors that affect the price include:

  • Needed turnaround time
  • Background Noise
  • How many speakers there are
  • How easy the file is to understand in general?
  • Industry

These factors usually affect the length it takes to transcribe an audio file, or how much of a specialist is needed.

If you know that you will frequently need our transcription services, make sure to use a good microphone so that the audio is nice and clear to understand. This will help you save money on transcription fees in the long term.

What File Types Can You Transcribe?

In general, we can transcribe any type of audio or video file. That also includes videos that are hosted on streaming platforms like YouTube or Vimeo.

All you need to do is let us know what type of file it is, and we’ll let you know if it’s possible. But, as already mentioned, in general, we can transcribe all types of audio and video formats as long as we can play the file.

If you have any type of custom requirements or need the file to be transcribed a certain way, just let us know in advance and we’ll take care of it for you.

Can I Use an Automated Software?

The problem with artificial intelligence is that it’s not developed enough to understand humans. So, any words that are not spoken clearly on the transcription will not be used correctly. This makes it an incredible pain to edit which usually must be done by a third party as it takes even longer than the transcription, making it more costly too.

When it comes to producing true word-perfect transcriptions for professional purposes, the transcriber must be human and be able to rewind the audio file to get everything spot on. However, a piece of software would just continue and guess the words which is why it will produce such an inaccurate unusable transcript.

Additionally, automated software cannot understand accents, dialects, multiple speakers, etc. so it’s not a viable option.

How Can You Deliver So Quickly?

We have many transcription professionals based in London and other cities in the UK. They work around the clock, as we have so many projects which means when there’s a need for urgency, we can find the best transcriptionist for the job and get them to transcribe the file ASAP.

Who Will Transcribe My Audio File?

Your audio file will be transcribed by an English-speaking native that has at least 5 years of experience in linguistics.

Plus, they will also be highly skilled in transcription. After they have transcribed the file, the text file will then be checked by a second native speaker afterward.

This is one of the things that sets us apart from other online transcription agencies as they get any person they find to transcribe the file.
