Transcription Services offered by Manchester Translation Services
Details of the full suite of transcription services offered by Manchester Translation Services.
What is transcription?
Transcription is the process of converting spoken words into writing i.e. the linguist listens to the audio file and types out what is being said.
It should not be confused with translation, which is the representation of meaning of a source language into a target language.
We are now offering high-quality transcription services at competitive rates. All transcription work is carried out by native, university-qualified linguists. There are a few options with this service:
- Single language transcription: Our linguists listen to the audio file and type what is being said within.
- Transcription and subsequent translation: Our linguists listen to the audio file and type out the content. Afterwards, the written text is translated from the source language into the target language.
- Direct translation: Our linguists will listen to the audio file in one language and directly translate the content to the target language.
Transcription is charged on a per-minute basis, starting from 5 GBP plus VAT per minute. Of course, the rates really depend on the quality of the audio file and how clear / fast the person in the file speaks. It is best to send the file for our consideration so that we can quote appropriately.
