Our Transcription Services

Same-Language Transcriptions

Same-language transcripts involve listening to an audio recording and typing up the contents into a digital written format. They are often required by professionals such as doctors, lawyers and lecturers who need certified written copies of discussions available for reference.

Multi-Language Transcriptions

Multilingual transcription involves transcribing a recording directly into another language. This allows your media to be understood by a foreign audience even when it wasn't originally recorded in their native language.

Double-Column Transcriptions

This involves transcribing audio into its original language before then translating it into a second language. The layout of the transcript is in two columns so that the reader can understand which part of the original audio the translation corresponds to.

Subtitle Translations

This involves producing either same or foreign language transcripts in a time-coded format that can be used in post-production for video clips or films. Subtitling benefits the hard-of-hearing or foreign viewers who are unable to understand the original audio language.

Why Choose Us?

The professional transcription services we offer are a testament to our understanding of the diverse needs of modern businesses in a technological world. Whether it’s an audio or video clip you wish to transcribe, our experienced transcribers can quickly deliver the text version of your content in either its original language or translated into a foreign language.

Transcription is an art. It involves so much more than just writing down what you think you hear. It’s about researching a topic to ensure that it’s understood in its entirety, checking that names, places, and acronyms are correct, not to mention the importance of spelling and grammar.

In choosing us as your transcription partner, you can rest assured that your project will be completed by a native-speaking translator who has at least 5 years’ experience in the industry before being checked by a second translator, guaranteeing accuracy and reliability. Alongside this, our linguists are experts in technology, meaning we can deliver your transcript in the exact file format you require.

Translating your audio into a foreign language unlocks the potential of your work to an international audience. A quality translated transcription will allow your target audience to engage with your content across different media to achieve maximum visibility in overseas markets.

If your film or marketing project involves working with video or audio dialogue in another language, our script transcriptions can give you the adaptability you need to communicate your ideas on an international stage. As with all of our quality transcription services, your project will be carried out from start to finish by carefully selected native translators, so you can be sure that your transcript translation will have the living feel and natural flow of everyday speech.

Central to the transcription translation we offer is an awareness that the dynamic of exchange and international communication is never simply one-way. For more complex documents and texts that may originate in more than one language, or need to be translated into several, our multilingual transcriptions allow for us to work with the versatility of your target market.

So, if you’re looking for either same-language or multi-language transcription service, a video translator, or voice over services, contact us now with the details of your project, and we will get back to you with a competitive quote within the hour.

Our multi-lingual transcription and translation services involve transcribing the original audio or video file either directly into the target language or first into the original language followed by into the foreign language.  Learn more about our professional translation services or give us a call today.

With over 500 expert transcriptionists specialising in different fields, we guarantee highly-accurate transcriptions while maintaining an incredibly affordable price.

To ensure the highest level of accuracy, we tend to prefer double-column transcription. With this method, a same-language transcription is completed by a native speaker of the original language, before being passed to a native speaker of the foreign language. The translator then completes the next step, ensuring that the translated transcript is accurate and natural and that the vocabulary used is localised.

We have in-house tech-experts, meaning we can complete transcriptions from, and deliver in, a vast array of digital file formats. We can handle both single and multi-speaker projects, and we deliver the transcript back to you in an easily-understandable script style. At your request, we can also use time-coding software so that you can identify the exact moment a phrase is being said and by who.


We are well aware that detail and precision are two of the most powerful tools of any language, and so our friendly team will endeavour to protect the finer elements of your video or audio transcription while maintaining affordable pricing.

Once an audio clip or video has been transcribed into the original language, we can then translate it into one or many languages to allow your content to reach an increasingly wide audience.

We understand that while sometimes the transcription content will need to be used directly as you receive it, there are also times when you will want to work with the transcribed content as a starting point for further development.

All of our transcriptionists have excellent word-processing skills and meticulous attention to detail. They can handle both live and recorded audio and video files.
