Transcription Services for Press and Media

Our typists at Transcription City are frequently tasked with producing various pieces for the press and media companies, from within both the UK and across the globe. Our transcription services for press and media are fast, efficient and accurate. Here’s a look at the types of high-quality work we cover:

Transcription Services for Press Releases, Media Interviews and Radio Shows

Press releases are sent over on a daily basis, and these are treated as a matter of urgency, owing to the need for media journalists to produce up-to-the-minute information for their audiences. Interviews, either audio or video, are transcribed with the highest accuracy into text format. Depending on the nature of the files, media clients may request strict verbatim transcription (where every word and sound is transcribed), or intelligent verbatim (where unnecessary repetition is removed).
We are also able to transcribe full-length radio shows and podcasts for our clients. As with interviews, clients tend to require show transcriptions to be produced on a fast turnaround basis. Thanks to our dedicated team of audio typists, Transcription City can cater for this need around the clock.

Subtitling and Closed Captioning Services

With the ever-increasing demand for improved accessibility for hearing-impaired audiences, many broadcasting and internet companies use subtitling. Subtitles are used to display spoken words, allowing the dialogue to be followed as the action takes place on screen. Where closed captioning is unique is that alongside subtitles, every other sound is described, for example musical cues or sound effects. This aids production companies in creating greater understanding across a wider audience.

Translation Services

Transcription City is proud to have high quality translators on our team. They work hard to reproduce foreign language recordings into English, and vice-versa. Translated speech is then transcribed into documents or subtitles, depending on the client’s specific requirements.

Bespoke Typing Services

Transcription City offers a range of additional work to meet almost every need. We offer the production of timecoded video work and logging of rushes, and we ensure these are completed in a timely manner. Additionally, our expert typists can convert notes, typed or scanned, into a range of Word documents, Excel tables and reports.
