The Advantages of Edited Transcription

Edited Transcription For Genius Verbatim!

 

If you have never listened to an audio recording of a conversation or read an intelligent verbatim transcript, you may not realise that conversations and interviews do not flow like they do on television or in the movies. Many audio recordings of meetings, focus group or even dictations are full of pauses, false starts, people speaking over each other and grammatical mistakes that you don’t really want or need in your finished transcript.

If you plan on using your transcripts for publications, presentations, brochures, eBooks or articles, using edited transcription services could be the best way forward. Edited transcription excludes all irrelevant information, such as pauses, quirks in speech and fillers such as ‘kind of’, ‘sort of’, ‘um’s’, ‘er’s’ and the like. Using edited transcription also means that false starts and unnecessary repetition is also omitted from the transcript. Depending on your needs, we can also add extra information that you may have forgotten to include in your recording or delete sections that you don’t want in your finished document.

transcripts can also be really useful to students who have recordings of important lectures, presentations, groups or interviews that may be of use for dissertations or for revision. You could even record your essays or reports with confidence in the knowledge that you won’t have to worry that you haven’t put your ideas across properly. Teachers and lecturers can also benefit from edited transcripts, as they have the advantage of being easier to study and read from as they don’t contain irrelevant information. They can also be used as a handy reference to past lectures or lessons. Edited transcription is perfect promotional material, such as podcasts, videos and marketing documents, allowing you articulate your message perfectly to viewers or potential clients. Unlike intelligent verbatim, your transcript will always flow perfectly and everyone will come across as if they know exactly what they want to say, first time, every time.

Edited transcription is also used in foreign language transcription, to ensure that nothing is lost in translation. This means that your documents will be translated with the right style and flair, so as to put your message across to everyone, no matter what location they are in or what language they speak. Most transcription services will provide translation services too.

To summarize, edited transcription is a service that is often overlooked by clients who do not realise the effectiveness of having a well put together, easy to read transcript that has all of the relevant information and cuts out the guff – now that’s genius!
