    The combination of long university lectures and the need to write down every piece of important information that is presented by university professors proves to be a stressful challenge for many students, no matter how quick they are at note-taking.

    With that being said, academic transcriptions offer students the ability to transcribe their educational materials, whether it be lectures, seminars, or group work, and turn their recordings into eligible transcripts to be used for future use.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    What is academic transcription?

    Academic transcription simply allows you to record your lectures or academic meetings, via both an audio and video recording, and refer back to them later, allowing you to remain in the moment when it really matters.

    It is a tool that is invaluable to both teachers and students alike, as teachers can utilise their source material for future classes or even to improve existing classes, whilst students can give their full concentration on what is being taught within the moment, instead of having to multi-task taking detailed notes and listening at the same time.

    The transcription process transcribes your lessons, team projects, or other educational material from your recordings into a cohesive and accurate transcript, meaning that you can return to the important parts of the classroom with great ease and peace of mind.

    How can academic transcription help students?

    Academic transcription is a beneficial tool for students as its use goes beyond the simple confinement of the classroom and lectures. It can also be used in transcribing project team meetings, transcribing video files for academic research and audio files from focus groups, and also allow you to turn your personal audio notes into readable and accurate transcripts.

    Maintain focus: It also allows students to maintain all their focus on the class and what really matters; what is being taught, rather than having to split their time and thinking between two separate (and highly important) tasks; note-taking and listening. Whilst note-taking can be a great way for students to help retain information given to them, it can quickly spiral into chaos when you can’t keep up with what is being said or, perhaps more frustratingly when relying on your own hearing capabilities, it only takes one unheard sentence to throw off the entire note-taking process, making transcribing even more stressful and time-consuming.

    Keeping track of group discussions: When at university, group project work, discussions, and interviews are commonplace. As such, when relying on multiple people to keep track of what is being discussed, progression in a project team can start to stagnate as multiple speakers begin to offer multiple ideas and ways of moving the project along. Subsequently, having a simple audio recording of the group session and transcribing it afterwards allows for greater ease of analysing content later down the line, with the opportunity of referring back to what was said made much simpler and easier.

    As a business, Espresso Translations ensures basic functionalities from your audio transcription, with our academic transcription services also being able to discern between different voices and speakers within your discussion group. This great service means that we can maintain a high standard of accurate transcription for all of our clients and deliver all transcripts on time for you to complete your studies and academic research.

    Makes for easy referencing: The ability for students to able to transcribe their lectures into a cohesive transcript gives them the ability to harness all that knowledge shared by their lecturer into invaluable educational material. The ability to easily reference this transcription work at a later date can be greatly beneficial for students when the time comes to write that essay or that thesis, or even to further develop group work and to study better for that exam they’ve been stressing out about.
    Plus, when undertaking any form of academic research, such as for a PhD, a good transcription service can also give students the edge when having to transcribe any interviews that have been undertaken to help bolster their academic work with accurate findings.

    Students having access to transcription services to provide accurate transcripts of their work and/or research also allows them to search it with relative ease and effectiveness when searching for particular keywords, themes, topics, phrases, sections, and plenty of other important areas.

    Transcribed work can also be easily organised and catalogued, making the referring process all the simpler, especially when students are forced to go back through their chaotically scrawled handwritten notes (or even filter through their own memory of what was said exactly) and long audio recordings.

    As such, individuals that possess academic transcripts have a huge advantage in their studies as they can access the relevant information with ease and keep all that information streamlined with a cohesive referencing system.

    Reduces stress: Academia can be a highly stressful environment, especially with the constant pressure of academic pursuit and greatness on students’ shoulders. As such, the introduction of a basic tool such as audio transcription can give pupils peace of mind as they can put their full concentration on their class, and no longer have to worry about missing out on anything important or even lose themselves in their notes, with the ability to transcribe everything important for any research at a later date.

    How can academic transcription help professors?

    No matter what field you specialise in, the ability to share your passion and knowledge as an educator with others is extraordinary.
    Not only are you looking to spark inspiration in your pupils and engage them with your teaching material so that they can reach both your expectations as their teacher as well as their own, but you are also striving to improve your own teaching skills.

    However, this is not always an easy task to achieve as the teaching environment continuously shifts. Whether you’re working in one to one interviews and focus groups in a small study space, or with group discussions and seminars in a large auditorium, transcription offers a huge range of benefits to the development of your teaching expertise.

    Not only do transcripts make for quick and simple teaching material, but when you’re in the classroom you are more than likely to encounter a variety of different students with different teaching needs. Whilst some pupils’ methods of learning may differ greatly from your teaching style, others such as international students may also learn best in their own mother-tongue, and deaf or hard-of-hearing individuals may also benefit from additional support and transcribed work.

    As such, academic transcription is the tool to help all educators conquer the classroom and to not only boost your own teaching proficiency but also to help each student to get the most out of your teaching and to overcome any challenges that may be imposed by the classroom.

    Transcription is easily one of the simplest and most affordable ways of using technology to reach your students and support their different learning styles.

    What are interviews?

    Research interviews can play a pivotal role in academic research, especially when undertaking any form of qualitative research where there is a need to collect in-depth information on people’s opinions, thoughts, experiences, and feelings, and there’s a requirement for complex questioning and considerable probing.

    As such, it is a good research practice to transcribe all interviews conducted as part of a research project or case study for the following reasons:
    – It gives you a written record of any research conducted
    – It saves you time when looking for specific results
    – It helps to maintain accuracy throughout your research project
    Our transcription services also include interview transcriptions, allowing us to help bolster your research one transcript at a time, and on time.

    Should transcripts be translated?

    It can be very helpful to get academic transcripts translated. A good word-for-word translation of an academic transcript can help with studies, employment, or applying for internships or positions on further educational courses. It is also very important to have a translated version of your academic transcript for whatever the main language is wherever you want to move to, if you need it for a visa application process.

    Is a transcript a translation?

    A transcript can mean anything which is written down in the full form. Your academic transcript will be just this, for your academic merits. A translation of this transcript is useful for when you want someone who speaks a different language to fully understand your transcript. There are other kinds of transcripts, which can cause confusion.

    How long does it take to translate a transcript?

    The exact time to translate your academic transcript will depend on several factors. Most importantly, the time taken for the translation will depend on the length of the transcript – a longer, fuller transcript will take longer to translate. Transcripts with highly technical terms can often take longer to translate too. Academic transcript translations will often need to be certified translations, to verify that they are accurately portraying the original. Meeting the requirements for a certified translation may take slightly longer. If you need your academic transcript translated in a hurry, try out express translation service.

    Where can I translate my diploma?

    There are many options for getting your diploma translation, or for getting an academic transcript translated. You could ask a friend or family member to translate it or try using a translation program. However, getting academic transcripts or certificated translated is one of the most vital translations, and it is important to find the most accurate translation possible. At Espresso Translations we believe we are the best choice, as we ensure accurate translations by using native-speaking translators who are experts in their fields.
