Types of transcription...

We offer three types of transcription service + extras

Our most popular service. Everything is typed out but omits fillers, repetitions, and any stumbling over words:

“I did a degree in criminal justice and psychology and then after that, got a job working for a drug and alcohol charity and I was based in a Probation Service.  I was a case worker for people who are on probation and needed support with their  drug and alcohol use.”

Everything is said and how it’s said:

“I-I did a degree in criminal justice and psychology and then erm, after that, after that I g-got a job working for a, a drug and alcohol charity and I-I was based in a Probation Service.  [Pause] I was a, a case worker – for um, people who are on probation and need- needed support with their er, drug and alcohol use.”

Provides a more concise read, summarising the audio. Dialogue is still transcribed and some verbatim quotes are included, but repetition, non-relevant discussion is omitted and some sentences edited:

“I did a degree in criminal justice and psychology and got a job working for a drug and alcohol charity based in a Probation Service.  I was a case worker for people on probation, who needed support with their  drug and alcohol use.”

In addition to our transcription services we offer the following optional extras…

– Time stamping

– Voice ID – up to 8 respondents

– Anonymisation:

Researchers are being increasingly asked to archive anonymised and decontextualised data, however they still need a complete version for analysis and their records. For a small extra charge, we can provide two versions of one transcript, one complete version and one anonymised, with all personal information being removed.

“As an author scheduling interviews to fuel the research for a book, I need to know that even the most vocally-challenged interviewees will have their words deciphered as quickly and reliably as possible. With Transcribe It, I always have that confidence. They also approach timetabling with an honesty and flexibility that makes them a pleasure to work with, even (i.e especially) when deadlines are drawing closer.”
