    Our Qualitative Research Transcription Services


    We offer a comprehensive research transcription service. Whatever research recording you need transcripts of, we can help, from academic research to market research. We accept all common file formals, from MP4 to micro cassette, giving you the widest choice of recording methods possible.

    We are trusted by researchers and other clients because we always strive to provide high-fidelity transcripts which reflect the recording as accurately as possible. Whether you need interviews, focus groups, or meetings transcribed, we can help.

    Our transcription process uses an initial transcriber, a proofreader, and a project manager for project organization and updates – helping you stay informed of the state of your request while guaranteeing great attention to detail.

    We only use native-language transcribers – professional linguists working in their native language, to make sure that they are most likely to accurately transcribe your audio or video file.

    For specialist subjects, such as medical researcher recordings, we use linguists with experience in the right field, meaning they will understand and accurately transcribe any specialist terminologies and conventions used in the recording. We can also help keep your research anonymous to help maintain the integrity of your research by removing identifying markers from any audio transcripts.

    We also offer native-tongue translation services in over 150 languages, helping you collaborate with research professionals who speak other languages or helping you get feedback from foreign focus groups.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    How do I ensure a good transcription quality?

    To get the most accurate transcripts, please make sure that any audio submitted has a high audio quality. Poor sound quality or high background noise means that it is harder to get an accurate transcript. To avoid background noise, try to use good recording equipment and make sure spoken words are directed at the microphone. Try to hold the interview in-person to avoid bad connections, but avoid loud places, such as a cafeteria during lunch break.

    How long does qualitative research transcription take?

    The turnaround time can change based on the length and complexity of a project, but we have an impressive track record for speed. If you need an extra fast turnaround, we also offer an express transcription service for an additional fee. Most audio transcription takes around four times the length of the audio.

    Can you help with large qualitative research transcription projects?

    We have a proven track record working on projects of any size, from a single audio file to dozens of audio files for the same research project. As a partial list of what we can offer, we have transcribed audio for academic research, market research, research interviews, and more.

    How do quality transcripts help with qualitative research interviews?

    Research interviews are important in academic research and academic institutions and let you get information on a range of subjects. If you have your interview recorded it can be useful to get verbatim transcripts of the audio. This lets you more easily see the information from the research interviews, helping with data analysis, whether it is an interview with individuals or focus groups. This can save time and let you see key areas where you need to consider your data more easily, helping with the research process.

    Transcripts can also be written in a way to maintain subject anonymity by having identifying materials removed, which is often helpful for social scientists and researchers when dealing with focus groups. If you are unsure exactly what transcription services you need, we can provide advice.

    How much does research transcription cost?

    Transcription pricing is generally done by the length of audio, but some specialist subjects may have different pricing. Get in touch about whatever recording you need to be transcribed and we can provide a formal quote.

    Are my recordings secure?

    We know how important data security is, and we know there is a huge difference between google drive and a password-protected web-accessible client area. We are happy to provide secure storage and sign confidentiality agreements to keep your data secure.

    Should transcripts be translated?

    If you are working with researchers or focus group sessions in different languages, it can be very useful to get your transcript translated. We offer our clients translation services into 150+ languages.
