Transcription for Movies. At Transcription City, we have a dedicated team of Film transcriptionists who can provide you with accurate, correctly formatted and time stamped transcripts for your film and video.

Transcription for Movies:

Producing time coded transcripts that have a high accuracy and that are properly time coded and laid out can be a lot harder than you would think. Using a professional video transcription service can mean that not only do you save time, but you are also provided with a high quality transcript for your film. Film transcription is particularly useful for subtitling purposes. Subtitles are an essential part of making your films accessible to wider audiences, such as those who are deaf or hard of hearing. They can also be used to help people who are in the process of learning a foreign language. Having a transcript to accompany your film means that you can easily document and archive the contents of your film for future reference. This can be especially useful if you are making a factual film or documentary.

Transcript Formatting

If you already have your transcripts, but there is a problem with the formatting, we are happy to re-format, edit and amend any errors in formatting. This can be useful if you wish to use a film transcript for a theatre production, for example.


We are happy to fully proofread your film and video transcripts to ensure that they adhere to the highest levels of accuracy. Our proof-reader will amend your transcripts while watching your film or video, to make sure that there is accurate use of:

  • Time-codes.
  • Spelling and Punctuation.

We are able to log rushes from your film and video to ensure that they are accurately organised. We will take the images from your film and log them from your footage according to your specifications. This requires a meticulous and highly skilled secretary who is able to note every required detail, from the loudest crash, to the tiniest whisper or hesitation.
