Transcription is the process of converting recorded speech into text format. From conferences and interviews to video clips and telephone calls, we can produce a written version of your audio in any language.

Video and audio are a quick and convenient way to record events and to market your services. You may need to have a written version for reference or to communicate with a global audience. Whichever industry you are in and whatever language you might need, our experience and network of transcribers ensure that we can deliver high quality transcriptions for a competitive price.

What types of transcription can we provide?

Single-language transcription

Single-language transcription is used when you need a written record of an event or conversation in the same language as the original. This can be a complete, full-length account, or a summary of the key points from the recording.

This type of transcription is most useful for making a record of what was said at meetings or conferences. Our experienced transcribers can create a full script-like account, or they can draw up the key points in a minutes-style report.

Transcription into another language

We can also transcribe your audio into a different language. This is often useful if you have a recorded interview or other unscripted scenario and need a written record which can be understood by speakers of another language. As with single-language transcription, we can produce a full account or can summarise the key points of what has been said.
