Transcription Services

The need to transcribe recorded material into the written word is becoming greater and greater. Whether it’s minutes from a meeting, conference presentations, legal instruction or film audio, Dialogue can turn transcription around quickly, within your budget and in any language.
While it may be tempting to get your colleagues to do the work, our professional transcribers can complete the task over four times quicker than those less experienced, making it much more cost-effective to outsource.

What is transcription?

The transcription process involves taking the spoken language from a recording and writing it down in the same language, be it English, German, Chinese or Farsi.

If there are several people’s voices recorded, we can break the transcription down by individual speaker. Timings are also provided if necessary.

Transcription FAQs 

Transcription involves taking down spoken content from a recording and providing a written script (timecoded if needed). This may be from recorded meetings or conferences for reference purposes or from marketing films for the creation of subtitles/voiceovers. 

Typically, we can turn transcription around at a rate of 1-2 hours of recorded content a day. 

 

Transcription is charged by the minute (of recorded content) and starts from £5 upwards, depending on the language and urgency.
