A Guide to Our Urgent Transcription Services
Here at Transcription City, we regularly provide urgent transcription services. If you are interested in using our urgent transcription services, it’s important to know how things work, what can add to the cost and how you can get the most from these services.
Sending Audio or Video Files for Transcription
If your transcript is time sensitive, then there are a number of things that you need to remember in order to ensure that things run smoothly. First off, it’s important to give us as much information as possible beforehand; this includes things like the subject matter of your files, as well as the names of the speakers, companies, products and services that might be mentioned. It also helps if you can provide us with a time that your files are likely to arrive (please bear in mind, that there is a waiting charge for files that come in over an hour late). The more information you can provide us with, the more accurate your transcript is likely to be, it will also help to speed up the turnaround time as the typist won’t have to spend precious minutes doing research.
Required Turnaround Times For Transcription
Our urgent transcription turnaround times start from just 4 hours. It is important to ensure that you are always clear on what your required turnaround time is and how much audio you will be sending. Files that are over an hour in length (or over 45 minutes if difficult audio) will need to be shared between several typists in order to meet our most urgent deadlines. For this reason, we always need to know how long the file is, when it will arrive, how many speakers there are and how quickly you need the file back. This will ensure that we can provide the service you need and that we can make all the necessary arrangements for allocation of your files. Please note, that although we often meet deadlines of as little as an hour or less, the minimum turnaround we offer on our transcripts is 4 hours.
Additional and Optional Extra Transcription Services
To augment our transcription service, we also offer a number of additional services such as an additional proofreading service, editing services, formatting services and video logging services. These can also be added to your urgent transcript, but will impact on the turnaround times offered.
