Social Media and Online Video
Here at Transcription City, we transcribe 1000’s of videos day in, day out, working with a variety of formats and in a variety of transcription styles.

Read on!
Video Transcription and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
As the search engines (such as Google, Yahoo and Bing â€“ there are numerous others) cannot interpret the content of online video without text, they generally rely on the accompanying text that is submitted with it, this includes the video title, video description and any tags. However, a video transcript is a much more effective form of description which can contain several thousand words â€“ meaning your video is much more likely to be indexed, and noticed by prospective viewers, which leads to more exposure and ultimately more profit!
Video Transcription Subtitles And Captions
By law all broadcast video must provide closed captioning (captioning that can be turned on or off by the viewer) to cater for viewers who are deaf of hard of hearing. We believe this should also be true of online video, which is why we provide captioning for online video for our clients.
We also provide foreign subtitling services for viewers that speak a different language to the source language spoken in a video. This is particularly useful for businesses that trade worldwide and can expand your viewership way above that of your competitors.
