Here at Transcription City, we love to transcribe a variety of videos, audio files and online media. Our professional team of transcriptionists are selected for their accuracy and speed to ensure that your transcripts are always of a high standard and delivered on time. When it comes to podcast transcription, the subject matter can vary a great deal and so it is essential that we select the right transcriptionist for your podcast discussion. With that in mind, lets take a look at how having your podcasts transcribed can benefit you and your company.
Podcast Transcription and Captioning for Accessibility
Podcasts can be recorded as either video or audio files. Depending on what media you choose to record on, we can provide either an accompanying transcript (online or offline) for audio only or captioning services for video podcasts. By providing your audience with the option of a transcript or captioning, you are catering to the needs of those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Podcast Transcription for Marketing and SEO
The search engines (such as Google, Yahoo and Bing) aren’t able to interpret the content of audio or video files and so rely on accompanying text to know where to rank your podcasts within the search engines. This accompanying text would include the title, description, meta-tags and of course any transcripts, caption files or subtitle files that you have to accompany your podcast. This means that if you have carefully edited transcripts, subtitles and captions, you can include keywords that can then rank your videos and podcasts, helping you to outrank any of your competitors or potential competitors.
Podcast Translation Services
If having a wide and diverse audience for your podcasts is important to you, then what better way to increase the number of listeners than to have your podcasts translated? Having your podcasts translated into a variety of languages can give your content a global reach and really help to expand your audience in a big way. Translation services can be applied through interactive foreign language transcripts, foreign language basic transcripts, foreign language captioning and foreign language subtitling.
So there you have it, as you can see, there are many benefits to having your podcasts transcribed! If you would like more information about any of our transcription services, translation services or video captioning and subtitling, we’d love to hear from you. So why not call or email today?
