Flexible Transcription Options to Fit Your Needs

We offer flexible transcription services. You can use the guide below to help understand which service best fits your needs.

Transcription Options - Monolingual, Interpretive, Double Column

Not sure which option is right for you? We’re happy to discuss your unique goals. Just pick up the phone or send us a quick email! 

Competitive Pricing

All of our transcription services are charged based on the source file, not on the time it takes for us to complete it. So, if you have an audio file that is 30 minutes long, you will only pay per audio minute for that file. There are no surprises in pricing and you only pay for the service you need.

Flexible Formatting

We transcribe in all audio and video formats and can deliver the final transcript in any file type you need, be it a Word document, an .srt, or something else. If you have a particular formatting need for your transcriptions, just let us know.

Proven Quality Assurance Process

We search the globe for the most talented linguists and pair their skills with your project. Our standard process involves one linguist to transcribe, another linguist to edit the initial transcript, and one final quality assurance check by an experienced project manager before delivery. This multi-layered transcription process ensures consistently high quality across all deliverables. Don’t need it proofed or polished?  We also offer one-pass transcription – a faster and more budget-friendly option when you don’t really need the second set of eyes.

Industry Expertise

In addition to being trained professionals in translation and transcription, our linguists also possess the relevant industry knowledge and educational qualifications to handle the technical requirements of your project. For example, if you’re looking for qualitative research transcription or law enforcement transcription, we’ll make sure that the linguist working on your project is familiar with the nuanced terminology used in your field of work.
