Accurate transcription of audio and video files

We always ensure accuracy thanks to our rigorous transcription process. All transcriptions are handled by a linguist who is a native speaker of your language. This helps to ensure the highest accuracy. If you have a need for a transcription service in a specialised field such as law, medicine or engineering, we will also make sure that your transcription is handled by someone with experience in this field. This means that they will be able to accurately transcribe all the complex terminology in your field. Once the transcript has been finished, it will be handed to another professional linguist who will proofread the document for accuracy, checking for any mistakes. Throughout this whole process, one of our dedicated project managers will oversee their progress and they will also keep you up to date with the progress of your project, answering any questions you might have.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost for transcription services?

We offer competitive rates for our professional transcription service. We charge per minute of audio or video that you need to be transcribed. We can also give you a quote for subtitling and other transcription services, as well as translation of finished transcripts. Please be sure to tell us what services you need when you request a quote. We respond to all quote requests within one hour.

What is business transcription?

Our business transcription services can help you get any video or audio files you need as written files. For video files this can include turning the audio into time stamped subtitle formats, letting you quickly and easily add subtitles to your videos. Our audio transcription services can help by getting focus group recordings, business meetings, phone conversations and more turned into simple text files, which can be much easier and quicker for you to scan for specific sections compared to audio and video file types.

How long does it take to transcribe 1 hour?

It typically takes four minutes to transcribe each audio minute of a recording. This means that the time to transcribe a file is four times the length of the file. A one hour audio or video file type will take four hours for a proper transcription to be made.

How long does it take to transcribe 2 hours?

Since each audio minute takes four minutes to transcribe, it will take about eight hours to transcribe a two hour long video or audio recording. We know that deadlines and speed are extremely important in the business world. We always ensure that we have quick turnaround times for our transcription service, no matter what combination of transcription, translation and subtitling you need. We also offer an express transcription service for when you need transcription work done in a hurry. Our express service has even faster turnaround times and we can even get audio and video recordings transcribed and delivered back to you within the same day.

Are transcriptionists in demand?

Yes, transcribing services are very much in demand for business uses. This is because a high quality transcription service can help get your audio transcribed accurately and quickly, and the completed transcript can save businesses a lot of time by being a convenient way for people to refer back to the content of the meeting, focus group, or seminar.

How do I start a transcription business?

The most important things that a transcriptionist needs are fluency in their chosen language and a good ear for different accents and voices. Our expert transcriptionists all have over five years of experience in their chosen language. We also have experts with experience in specialised fields, for example legal transcription, medical transcription, and more. Working in these specialise fields means coming across a lot of highly technical and unusual terminologies, so having linguists with experience in these fields means we can ensure accuracy even for unusual terms.

Do you need a degree to be a transcriptionist?

It is not necessary to have a degree to be a transcriptionist. All our transcriptionists have the skills and experience to handle complex transcriptions with great accuracy. We also make sure that all our transcriptionists have over five years of experience in the linguistics field as well as knowledge of specialist terminology and awareness of how to get the best transcription quality possible.

How do I ensure good quality transcriptions?

You can rest assured that with Espresso Translations, the project team handling your transcription projects will ensure that you get the best quality transcriptions possible. However, if you want to increase your chances of getting accurate transcriptions, you should be sure to consider the audio quality of your recording. Whether you are looking for audio or video content transcriptions, you should try to make sure that the audio quality is good. Try to avoid recording in places with a lot of background noise, such as cafeterias or on busy streets. If there is a significant amount of other audio in the recording then it can be hard to ensure a clear transcript. You should also make sure that people are speaking clearly in the recording. If there are a lot of false starts and jumbled words in the recording, you can discuss whether an intelligent verbatim transcript is the best for you – this will cut out repeated words and false starts while otherwise keeping the transcript as a true representation of the audio.

Why not use machine transcription?

While machine transcription has become increasingly popular in recent years, these offerings cannot guarantee the accuracy and high quality that you get from using professional human transcriptionists. This is because machines cannot as clearly recognise words unless they are spoken in a specific way, which means that they struggle particularly with dialects and other features of language such as turns of phrase and idioms. We can ensure higher accuracy due to the expertise and experience of our masterful native-speaking linguists. We also offer additional services such as translation help, meaning that you can get your transcript translated into over 150 languages. On top of this, we have a rigorous accuracy protocol, and a fast turnaround time.
