Our Online Digital Transcription Service


We are one of the leading transcription companies in the UK. We can turn a wide range of digital voice files into transcripts. We pride ourselves on our accuracy, speed, and good price.

Transcription or subtitling services can be useful for a wide range of companies, organisations, and personal clients. Getting a high-accuracy transcript of your speech recordings can be very useful. Some of the most common speech transcription projects we handle include:

– Recordings of lectures, seminars or training sessions
– Recordings of focus group research
– Legal recordings, including witness statements
– Medical transcription for appointments, meetings and seminars
– Board meetings, merger meetings, and other official meetings

The benefits of having a great transcript of your audio speech files are all things that can save you time and help you communicate better. Having a transcript of a meeting means you can easily refer back to specific points without having to search through an audio recording. Transcription of academic lectures makes for easy editing of notes, meaning you can more easily get the information you need into essays, without having to rely on rough draft notes made during the lecture.

We accept a wide range of file types. We handle most digital speech file formats for both audio and video. We can even help with some analogue file formats. If you are unsure whether or not we can work with your dictation file format, simply get in touch, and we will get back to you within one hour. We can deliver the finished transcription in a wide range of files to suit your needs. We offer everything from Microsoft Word text documents to timestamped subtitle file formats for video content.

We have a thorough transcription process that helps make sure you get a great transcription every time. Once you get in contact to request a quote and upload your files, we can start your transcription project. We will assign you a dedicated project manager, who will be the first port of call for any questions you have. The project manager will also keep you apprised of the progress on your transcription project, making sure that you always know what is going on and how soon to expect the completion of your project.

For the actual transcription, one of our expert linguists will take your dictation and turn it into the transcribed text file. After this, a second linguist will check the finished transcription for accuracy. Only once the project is checked will it be delivered. If you need additional services, such as a translation into a foreign language, or a specific file type, one of our expert translators or tech-savvy professionals will help deal with that.

We offer translations into over 150 languages. This means that you can get any type of language service you need, all under one roof. This means that if you need both a transcription service and a translation service, we can help. This saves you time, since you do not have to hunt for different experts – we can help make sure that you get an easy and smooth service from start to finish.

We only use native-speaking transcribers, ensuring the most precise transcriptions. We hire only the best, meaning we can outdo transcription technology. Your speech dictations are in safe hands with us. Native speakers are the best people to transcribe natural voice dictation.

Frequently Asked Questions


How can I guarantee the best transcription services?

We always offer highly accurate professional transcription services, but there are ways that you can ensure you get the best quality transcription. You should take care to make the recording as clear as possible. This means you should try to avoid recording in areas with a lot of background noise. If you are recording multiple speakers, try to avoid people talking over one another. You should also try to ensure that the digital dictation device you use is pointed directly at the person talking, to ensure the clearest audio. While your phone may be able to record audio, you may also get better results if you use a specialist digital dictation device.

Can you handle specialist transcriptions?

Yes, we have experts who can help transcribe a wide range of specialist subjects. For example, we have experts in legal transcription, medical transcription, and engineering text transcription. We always recommend using a specialist for these fields, since there is a lot of specialist language and uncommon terminology. This means that transcribers who do not have experience in your field could mistake these words for other terms and you could end up with an inaccurate transcription.

Can you transcribe both audio and video files?

Yes, we can offer an accurate transcription service for audio files as well as video content. For video-to-text transcription services, we can also offer subtitles in a timestamped format, making it simple for you to add subtitles to your video files. The process for getting a transcription, whether you need an audio file or a video file transcribed. Simply upload files to our system when you contact us, and we can have the transcripts ready in a matter of days.

Why not use speech recognition software?

Speech recognition software has gained popularity recently as the technology has become more widely available. Speech recognition software can be an appealing option since you can find cheap or free software for transcribing or subtitling audio and video content. However, speech recognition programs can still have a large number of errors, especially when dealing with technical terminology, unusual speech patterns, or speakers with heavy accents. Compared to this, getting digital transcriptions from professional linguists is much more accurate and reliable – it is always worth choosing to pay for expert transcriptions if you need accuracy.

How long does digital transcription take?

It is hard to give an exact answer for how long it takes to make a transcript of digital voice files. However, it usually takes around four hours for every one hour of audio. Our experts have experience providing an efficient service, and we always pride ourselves on having a great turnaround time. If you have an urgent need for dictation services, we also offer an express transcription service for an even faster turnaround – with our express service, we can get your transcripts back to you within one day for some projects.

How much do digital transcription services cost?

We offer a clear per-word transcription cost. The exact price will depend on the services you need – since we offer transcription, subtitling, and translation, there are different prices for these services. You can get a free quote by using our contact form below. Alternatively, you can get in touch through email or by phone. Once you get in touch and upload your project, one of our dedicated project managers will supply a quote within one hour. To help make sure you get the most precise quote possible, please include all the details of the files you need transcription services for.

Why use native-speaking professional transcribers?

We only ever use native speakers to transcribe or translate files. This means that the linguist working on your files will be a native speaker of your target language. So, if you are transcribing an English audio file, your transcriber will be a native English speaker. If you then need the transcription translated into French, the translator will be a native French speaker who is fluent in English. Native speaking linguists can guarantee the most fluent transcript with the highest accuracy. Native speakers will also have the best speech recognition skills to pick out multiple voices or pick up mumbled words.
