The Transcription Process
Whether you use transcription services on a regular basis or have never used a transcription company before, there are a couple of things that you can do as a client to make things run more smoothly, get a faster turnaround on your transcripts and get a transcript that is as perfect as possible. Want to know more? Read our quick guide to getting the perfect transcript.
Good Quality Recordings Produce a Great Transcript
One of the best ways of ensuring you get a high quality, fast turnaround transcription service is to ensure that you record your audio in a quiet place. It is also important to use a microphone for each speaker and to avoid interruption and interjection during your interviews where possible. Sending us a high quality recording allows the typist to hear everything clearly during transcription and also means that [unclear] or [overspeaking] are not littered throughout your transcript.
Provide Additional Information for your Typist
A good transcriptionist will always carry out research when typing up a transcript, as this ensures accuracy. However, research can be extremely time consuming and for this reason it is always advisable to provide your transcription company with as much relevant information as possible. Having the correct spellings for speakers names, company names, technical terms, useful websites, etc. will drastically reduce the time is takes to turnaround your transcripts and increase transcript accuracy
Let us Know Your Transcript Requirements
You wouldn’t walk into a restaurant, order “food” then expect the waiter to know you wanted steak and chips; the same is true with transcription. There are a number of different layouts, styles and extras that can be added to your transcription order and it is important to let your transcription service know exactly what you want (for example, time coded transcription, intelligent verbatim transcription, discourse analysis transcription, justified transcript layouts, PDF transcripts Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the list goes on!). If you are unsure of what you want, we are happy to go through the different transcript options to help you decide.
If you need to use our transcription services over the Easter break or would like more information about how to get the perfect transcript, why not get in touch? We are available 7 days a week and always happy to help.
