Professional Video Transcription Service
Our video and audio transcription services make sure that you can get any audio transcribed accurately and quickly. Whatever audio file you need to be transcribed, we have expert linguists who work in over 150 languages. We can offer verbatim transcriptions, complete with filler words and accidental pauses or corrections, or we can offer a transcript without these for faster reading.
Having written records of business or board meetings, focus groups, or lectures can give you bigger advantages than just having a record of the audio – text transcription is easier for people to search through compared to an audio and video file, allowing you to find the information you need, quickly. A high-quality transcript is also useful for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
For our personal clients, we can help provide a lecture transcript or a transcript of personal notes, saving you the hassle of fighting with a low-quality transcript from speech-to-text software with poor speech recognition. Whatever audio you need a transcript made of, we can help – no job is too big or too small.
We offer comprehensive professional transcription services, including subtitling, speaker identification, and options for the level of transcriptions you want. We are confident that our transcribers can outdo any speech to text software on speech recognition, making sure that you get the most accurate transcripts possible.
We make it simple for you to get your transcripts. We take almost any audio and video files. We can turn your audio into high quality transcripts, in a range of text files, including MS Word files, or other text document formats. We deliver your transcripts online, ensuring a fast turnaround time. Once you download transcripts that we have completed, we can still help in case of any issues.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I send audio or video files for transcription?
You can simply upload audio or video file types when prompted to send them to us, or you can email them to us. We have tech experts who can handle a wide range of different file formats, so you do not have to worry that we cannot access your file – but if in doubt, get in touch, and one of our expert project managers can help answer any concerns you have.
How can I ensure the best quality transcript of video or audio files?
While we focus on accuracy, it is hard to transcribe audio content with a poor quality recording. To avoid this, you should try to avoid recorded audio and video in areas with too much background noise, as excessive background noise can make it hard to hear words, and it can make speaker tracking difficult. You should also aim to have your speaker facing the microphone and ask them to speak clearly. As long as your speaker is clear and there is minimal background noise, we always offer a great quality text transcription with a quick delivery time.
How long does it take to transcribe a video?
Transcribing a recording typically takes around four minutes per audio minute – that is, for every minute of audio or video, it takes four minutes to accurately transcribe it. However, more complex projects with specialist terminology may take longer. As well as this, if there are problems with the audio quality, this can slow down the translation project as well. You should also factor in the time it takes for proofreading the completed transcriptions to remove any errors. Once you get in touch for a quote, our project managers will get in touch with a quote and information on how long our professional transcription service will take. We also offer express transcription services that can get your transcripts delivered in less than a day, for any urgent language needs you have. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a fast turnaround time without sacrificing quality.
Why not use machine transcription?
While there are a lot of options for speech-to-text or automatic subtitling, we know that these services do not give the high-quality transcripts that our clients need. Automated transcription relies on AI speech-to-text software which often cannot successfully transcribe words, especially if the speaker is talking very fast, of it they use unusual terminology, like the terminology found in a lot of specialist fields such as medicine or law. Automated transcription and speech-to-text also struggle with speech recognition, and can be almost useless in cases with heavy accents or poor audio quality. It is quite easy to see the flaws of transcription software by watching automatically generated subtitles. We know our clients need accurate transcriptions, so we advise always using services led by human transcription experts.
Do you offer subtitling services?
Yes, as well as standard transcription services, we also offer subtitling services for video content. This means we will deliver your transcript in a timestamped file format that you can simply add to your video to give viewers the option of subtitles. We can also offer subtitles in a range of languages, which can be ideal if you need to get a training video or information video viewed by employees in different countries, or if you want to get your entertainment media watched by people in other areas. Our subtitles are highly accurate, with great speech recognition.
Can my transcript be translated?
Yes, your transcript can be translated into over 150 different languages. All our translation services are handled by native-speaking translators, who only ever translate into their mother tongue. This means they can give the best accuracy, as well as the best nuance and flow to the finished translation.
If you do not need a transcript of your audio in its original language, we also offer services to simply translate audio into a different language – or as many different languages as you need. Each translation will be handled by a different expert, and we offer most of the common languages spoken across the globe, meaning you can find all the translation help you need, all under one roof.
What file formats do you offer?
We can accept almost any audio or video file type, including analogue recordings. We can deliver your finished audio transcription as a text file – for example, a Rich Text File or an MS Word file. If you have any specific requirements for the delivery of your transcript, or if you have unusual audio files, please do get in touch to see how we can help.
how much do you charge for transcriptions?
The pricing for transcribing an audio or video file will depend on the length, as well as other factors. We give clear per-minute pricing, meaning that you will always know exactly how much your project will cost. Transcriptions will cost more if you need translation as well, and other special services can increase the price too.
